Meta unveils 2 new generative AI tools for high-quality video, image creation

by IANS |



San Francisco, Nov 17 (IANS) Meta has announced two new generative AI tools called Emu Video and Emu Edit for high-quality video and image creation.


This year’s Meta Connect, the company had announced several new developments, including Emu, its first foundational model for image generation.


“With Emu Video, which leverages our Emu model, we present a simple method for text-to-video generation based on diffusion models. This is a unified architecture for video generation tasks that can respond to a variety of inputs: text only, image only, and both text and image,” Meta explained in a blog post late on Thursday.


The team splits the process into two steps: first, generating images conditioned on a text prompt, and then generating video conditioned on both the text and the generated image.


“This split approach to video generation lets us train video generation models efficiently,” said the company.


Emu Edit is a novel approach that aims to streamline various image manipulation tasks and bring enhanced capabilities and precision to image editing.


Emu Edit is capable of free-form editing through instructions, encompassing tasks such as local and global editing, removing and adding a background, color and geometry transformations, detection and segmentation, and more.


“Unlike many generative AI models today, Emu Edit precisely follows instructions, ensuring that pixels in the input image unrelated to the instructions remain untouched,” said Meta.


While certainly no replacement for professional artists and animators, Emu Video, Emu Edit, and new technologies like them could help people express themselves in new ways.
