DALL-E and DALL-E 2 are machine learning models developed by OpenAI to generate digital images from natural language descriptions. DALL-E uses a version of GPT-3 modified to generate images. In April 2022, OpenAI announced DALL-E 2, a successor designed to generate more realistic images at higher resolutions that “can combine concepts, attributes, and styles”.
At the Ignite 2022 conference, Microsoft announced the availability of DALL-E 2 through Azure OpenAI Services that allows Azure customers to access OpenAI deep learning models such as GPT-3.
From the interwebs:
Microsoft’s partnership with OpenAI began in 2019. Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI in exchange for an exclusive license to its technology. Since then, OpenAI has kept some of its deep learning models closed and only accessible through paid APIs. At the same time, Microsoft has benefitted from its agreement to integrate models such as GPT-3, Codex, and now DALL-E into its existing products.
Very recently, Microsoft announced its intent to further invest in OpenAI. An undisclosed sale of OpenAI stock by existing holders last year valued the company at nearly $20 billion. Investors who purchased the OpenAI stock included Sequoia, Tiger Global Management and Andreesen Horowitz.
Stay tuned on how we integrate it into our TAU Codex Orchestrator to enable Actionable Intelligence coupled with immersive video and graphics.
