Generative AI has surged forward, shaping new possibilities for human creativity. In a remarkable evolution from image generation to video and precise image editing. Building on the success of our Emu model, previously employed in various AI-powered applications, Meta's recent Meta Connect revealed two advancements: Emu Video and Emu Edit.
Emu Video: Ushering Text-to-Video Generation into a New Era
The introduction of Emu Video represents an innovative approach to text-based video creation, harnessing diffusion models. Unlike previous methods requiring multiple models, Emu Video employs a unified architecture that generates high-resolution videos efficiently. This method produces 512x512 four-second videos at 16 frames per second using just two diffusion models. The superior quality and fidelity to text prompts garnered a whopping 96% preference from users compared to prior models.
Emu Edit: Precision and Mastery in Image Manipulation
Emu Edit sets a new standard in image manipulation by delivering fine-grained, instruction-driven editing capabilities. While existing models often struggle with precision, Emu Edit revolutionizes the process. It meticulously modifies pixels based on user instructions, incorporating computer vision tasks for unparalleled control. Supported by a massive dataset of 10 million synthesized samples, Emu Edit outperforms existing methods in both qualitative and quantitative evaluations.
The Future of Creativity Unfolds
Though these advancements are currently in the realm of foundational research, their potential applications are vast. Imagine effortlessly crafting animated stickers, refining photos without technical expertise, or infusing life into static social media content. Emu Video and Emu Edit, while not replacements for professional artists, offer a canvas for individuals to explore new forms of expression.
Meta envisions these innovations as catalysts for self-expression and creativity across diverse domains. From creators seeking fresh narratives to users sharing unique greetings, these advancements unlock new dimensions of creative expression—a testament to innovation and human ingenuity.
