stable-diffusion

Stable Diffusion is a machine learning model developed by Stability AI in 2022 to generate digital images from natural language descriptions. The model can be used for generating image to image translations guided by text prompt and upscaling images. Stable diffusion was trained on a subset of the LAION-Aesthetics V2 data set consisting of 512x512 images.[3] Critics have raised concerns about AI ethics, stating that the model can be used to create deepfakes[4] and also question the legality of generating images on a data-set that was trained on copyrighted content without the consent of the original artist(s)....
