Generative AI in the industry, media, and beyond. Chances and challenges of stable diffusion
Stable Diffusion is a text-to-image AI-model capable of generating photo-realistic images given merely a textual description of the desired image content. This makes it possible to generate images quite easily without requiring special artistic skills, computer knowledge, or computer hardware and in a matter of seconds. The opportunities, challenges, and the changes that the use of Stable Diffusion brings will be discussed in this panel with the automotive industry and image agencies as examples.
