Generative Models for Visual Creation and Editing


Recent advancements in generative models have shown monumental progress ‑ enabling arbitrary generation of text, images, and a handful of other modalities. This begs the question: what's next? In this talk, I'll discuss the state of the art in generative imagery, the significance of generative models in the artistic creative process, as well as recent research in making these models more useful for visual tasks like creation, editing, and analysis.
