AI art is hot right now, that's for sure. I'm fascinated by what folks are creating—some of it is just so terrific. I recently joined the "Official Midjourney" Facebook page, where folks post the art they're generating, and I thought I'd share some of my favorites.

If you don't know what Midjourney is, here's a quick primer from How-to Geek:

Before we talk about Midjourney, let's start with DALL-E 2, the one you may have heard about. DALL-E 2 sits at the high end of these AI-based image generator tools. It can create completely brand new images from a simple text prompt. You enter "a robot eating a taco," and it creates an image depicting a robot eating a taco.

At the more basic level is Craiyon, formerly known as "DALL-E mini." This is a free web tool that anyone can use, but it's not nearly as sophisticated as DALL-E 2. The results are often strange and somewhat creepy, but it's still very fun to play with.

Midjourney sits somewhere in the middle of DALL-E 2 and Craiyon. It also uses AI and machine learning to generate images based on text prompts. The results are usually quite good, but not as mind-blowing as DALL-E 2. The important thing is anyone can try the beta version of Midjourney right now (as of August 2022,) unlike DALL-E 2. No waiting period required.

If you want to start generating your own AI art on Midjourney, How-to Geek also explains how to sign up. Here are the first parts of their instructions; you can head here to read the rest:

The only thing you need to use the Midjourney Beta is a Discord account. That's where you will give text prompts to the Midjourney bot. You can sign up for a free account on Discord's website. After that, you can use Discord in a web browser or download the app for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iPhone. Once you're all set up with Discord, we'll head over to the Midjourney website and select "Join the Beta."

Here are two of my favorite Midjourney galleries to inspire you: First, check out this wild set of images by Cesare Parmiggiani: "Grannies are preparing to face a cold winter." Next, have your mind blown by Matt Panfil's "A Very Lisa Frank Apocalypse."

  • If Alejandro Jodorowsky filmed a Tron sequel

    Easily my favorite use of AI image generators yet: Jodo Tron. Outstanding work by Johnny Darrell, which should wake up anyone, like me, that tends to downplay the impact of the technology. (Though note that to animate and film this credibly, you would have to have humans painstakingly recreate every detail as costumes, sets and… READ THE REST

  • Illustrator discovers her art was used to train an AI art generator

    Los Angeles artist and character designer Hollie Mengert found out that someone used her online portfolio to train an AI text-to-art model. The AI art looks a lot like Mengert's work, at least at a first glance. Andy Baio has a great article about it. Using 32 of her illustrations, MysteryInc152 fine-tuned Stable Diffusion to recreate… READ THE REST

AI DeFi Blog is a top resource for all things related to blockchain-based finance and cryptocurrency. Our team of professionals is dedicated to providing our readers with the newest news, insights, and analysis on the dynamic world of DeFi. At AI DeFi Blog, we are excited about all things DeFi, from leverage trading to yield farming and beyond. We believe that DeFi has the ability to change the way we think about finance and financial systems, and we are excited to be a part of this developing movement. One of the main features of DeFi is that it is built on blockchain technology, which allows for distributed transactions that do not require a third party, such as a bank, to facilitate. This means that you can take control of your own financial transactions and assets, which can be especially appealing to those who are doubtful of traditional financial systems. DeFi also enables greater accessibility and inclusion, as it enables anyone with an internet connection to participate in financial transactions and activities. This is particularly important in regions where traditional financial systems may be less advanced or unreachable. In addition to DeFi, we also cover a array of topics related to cryptocurrency, including bitcoin, altcoins, mining, and more. We understand that the world of cryptocurrency can be daunting, especially for those who are new. That's why we strive to provide our readers with concise and user-friendly content that covers the most important aspects of cryptocurrency and DeFi. Whether you're a experienced pro or just getting started, we've got something for you. Our goal is to deliver our readers with the knowledge and tools they need to navigate the thrilling world of DeFi and cryptocurrency. So join us as we discover the exhilarating world of DeFi and cryptocurrency as a community! From margin trading to yield farming and beyond, we've got you covered.
