Shutterstock Inks OpenAI Deal
Shutterstock, a major stock image provider, has inked a deal with OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research lab, to create a generative artificial intelligence toolkit.
The toolkit, which is still in its early stages, will allow users to create images based on text prompts. This means that, given a textual description of an scene or object, the system will be able to generate a corresponding image.
The toolkit is based on OpenAI’s Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), which are a type of artificial intelligence algorithm that can learn to generate new data samples from scratch.
This is not the first time that GANs have been used to generate images, but it is the first time that they have been used by a major stock image provider.
The toolkit is still in its early stages and is not yet available to the general public. However, it is already being used by Shutterstock’s in-house team of designers and developers to create new images for the company’s website and mobile apps.
In the future, Shutterstock plans to make the toolkit available to all of its users, so that anyone can create their own custom images.
This could be a major boon for businesses and individuals who need to create visuals for their products or services but don’t have the time or skills to do so themselves.
So far, the results produced by the toolkit have been impressive, with many of the generated images being virtually indistinguishable from real photos.
However, there are still some areas where the system needs improvement, such as in the generation of human faces. But with continued development, it is only a matter of time before the toolkit is able to produce completely realistic images.
The Future of Generative AI
The possibilities opened up by generative AI are virtually limitless. In the future, we can expect to see more and more businesses and individuals making use of these tools to create custom visuals for their products and services.
What’s more, as the technology continues to improve, we will likely see generative AI being used for more than just creating images. It could also be used for creating videos, 3D models, and even whole websites.
The possibilities are endless, and it is exciting to think about what the future of generative AI holds. Shutterstock inked a deal with OpenAI in order to roll out a generative AI toolkit. This will allow users to create images based on text prompts. This will be a great way for people to create more unique and custom content.
After inking its OpenAI deal, Shutterstock rolls out a generative AI toolkit to create images based on text prompts
Shutterstock has been working with OpenAI on a generative AI toolkit that can create images based on text prompts. The toolkit, which is now available to all Shutterstock users, includes a number of pre-trained models that can be used to generate images from text descriptions.
The toolkit is designed to be used by Shutterstock’s customer-facing tools, such as its search engine and customer support chatbot. The company says that the toolkit will help its customers find the right images faster and with less effort.
Shutterstock first announced its partnership with OpenAI in October 2019. At that time, the company said that the partnership would focus on developing tools to make it easier for Shutterstock’s customers to find the right images.
The new generative AI toolkit is the first fruit of that partnership. It includes a number of pre-trained models that can be used to generate images from text descriptions.
The models have been trained on a large dataset of images and text descriptions. Shutterstock says that the dataset includes “millions” of images and text descriptions.
The toolkit also includes a number of tools for creating, training, and deploying the models. The company says that the toolkit will make it easy for developers to create and train their own models.
Shutterstock says that the toolkit is currently being used by its search engine and customer support chatbot. The company says that the toolkit has helped its customers find the right images faster and with less effort.
The toolkit is available now to all Shutterstock users.
