Craiyon, formerly DALL·E mini, is an AI model that can draw images from any text prompt!
Are you related to DALL·E mini?
Yes, Boris Dayma (who trained the current version of the AI model) and Pedro Cuenca (who worked on the backend) are both part of the craiyon team and still contribute to the dalle-mini repository!
Why did you change your name?
OpenAI asked us to change the name of our app which quickly became viral to avoid confusion with their model.
How does the AI model work?
The model used is called "DALL·E mini", specifically the larger version also known as "DALL·E mega" and is trained using Google TRC. You can find more details in the W&B Project Report.
What about limitations and biases?
While the capabilities of image generation models are impressive, they may also reinforce or exacerbate societal biases. Because the model was trained on unfiltered data from the Internet, it may generate images that contain harmful stereotypes. The extent and nature of the biases of the DALL·E mini model have yet to be fully documented. Work to analyze the nature and extent of these limitations is ongoing and being documented in more detail in the DALL·E mini model card.
