Big Takeaway: Apple has released an AI-based image editing model called "MGIE" (MLLM-Guided Image Editing) that responds to natural language instructions for image editing.
MGIE employs “MLLMs” (Multimodal Large Language Models), which incorporate text, photos, and videos to understand and generate human-like language.
MGIE can interpret precise editing commands such as “increase the saturation of the sky region by 20%.” Which sets it apart from other image models.
The model is available as an open-source project on GitHub and Hugging Face.
Microsoft Designer received the largest update as it now has new in-line editing capabilities such as colorizing, blurring backgrounds, or changing image styles. (See example)
Subscribers to Copilot Provide $20/month, get new updates like resizing images and changing orientations between portrait and landscape modes.
Yesterday was Bing Chat’s one year anniversary and there have been over 5 billion chats and images using Copilot/Bing in the past year.
OpenAI will add watermarks from the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA) to images created by their AI image generation model, DALL-E 3. This will allow people to verify the original origins of an image to help combat misinformation and deepfakes.
Apple is developing prototypes for folding iPhones and iPads, according to a new report, though mass production plans remain unclear. The folding iPhone concept folds horizontally like a Galaxy Z Flip, but engineers have struggled with durability.
Simplify is an early-stage startup using AI to try and improve the tedious job application process by combining questionnaires, job scraping, matching, auto-filling applications, and helping answer text questions into the ultimate AI-powered job application tool.
