Google’s DreamBooth: A Tutorial For Generative AI Art For Free
This article acts as a tutorial for those who are interested in the field of Generative Art and want to make images for themselves and of themselves. Anyone can use a few photos and Google’s DreamBooth to make original abstract, surrealist, or experimental portraits of themselves for free.
What is Generative AI?
Generative AI art is a type of art created with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI) — It is also sometimes referred to as AI-generated art, computational art, or machine-generated art.
The word “generative” describes the fact that a computer program developed the artwork as opposed to a human artist. The name “AI” signifies the program’s foundation in artificial intelligence, or a computer’s capacity to mimic human intelligence.
Digital art, digital sculptures, and even actual sculptures are all examples of generative AI art. Any AI, such as neural networks, evolutionary algorithms, and rule-based systems, can be used to make the art.
What is Google’s DreamBooth?
DreamBooth is a deep learning generation model developed by Google Research and Boston University researchers in 2022 for improving existing text-to-image algorithms. After training on as little as three to five photographs of a subject, DreamBooth implementations — which were first developed using Google’s own Imagen text-to-image model — allow the model to provide more specialized and “personalized” outputs.
At a high-level, the technique used is that the provided images will serve as a corresponding class or unique identification that may be used in various scenarios based on prompts to produce customized results.
How to Use Google’s DreamBooth?
As previously mentioned, DreamBooth doesn’t need a large dataset of photos to provide results. In this tutorial, I recommend using at least 10 to 15 portrait photos to provide the best…
