M-VADER is a cutting-edge diffusion model (DM) designed for image generation. What sets it apart is its ability to generate images based on a mix of both images and text. This means that the output can be tailored using any combination of visual and textual inputs. The inspiration behind M-VADER stems from the success of previous DM image generation algorithms that allowed image outputs to be specified using text prompts. The underlying idea is that language has been inherently developed to describe the most crucial elements of visual contexts that resonate with human perception.
Features of M-VADER
- Multimodal Image Generation: M-VADER is not just limited to text prompts. It can generate images based on a combination of multiple images or a mix of images and text. This flexibility opens up a plethora of creative possibilities.
- Embedding Model – S-MAGMA: At the heart of M-VADER is the S-MAGMA embedding model. This is a massive 13 billion parameter multimodal decoder. It amalgamates components from an autoregressive vision-language model known as MAGMA. Additionally, it has biases that have been fine-tuned for semantic search, ensuring that the generated images are contextually relevant and semantically accurate.
- Vision-Language Integration: M-VADER is closely related to a vision-language model. This ensures that the generated images are not just visually appealing but also contextually relevant to the textual prompts provided.
- Inspired by Human Perception: The model is designed keeping in mind how humans perceive and describe visual contexts. This ensures that the generated images resonate well with human viewers.
