OpenAI’s Upgrades Its ‘DALL-E’ Integrating ChatGPT and Generating Higher Quality Images

IBL News | New York

OpenAI, this week, unveiled an upgraded version of its text-to-image tool, DALL-E 3, that uses ChatGPT to help fill in prompts or descriptions of images in this case.

It will be issued for premium ChatGPT users in October. The company didn’t say when it plans to release a free web tool, as it did with DALL-E 2 and the original DALL-E model.

Subscribers of paid ChatGPT Plus and ChatGPT Enterprise will be able to type a few words for an image and hone it through conversations with the chatbot, making it more descriptive, and providing way a more guidance to the DALL-E 3 model.

The upgraded DALL-E 3 also generates higher-quality images that more accurately reflect prompts, OpenAI says, especially when dealing with longer prompts.

In terms of security, the company said that artists can now opt out of having certain — or all of — their artwork used to train future generations of OpenAI text-to-image models.

The launch of DALL-E 3 comes as OpenAI faces competition from Midjourney and Stability AI.

Separately, OpenAI, this week, announced it was working with a group of expert contractors to “red team” its products in search of bias and other issues.
