Meta announced, this Thursday (29), the Make-A-Video, an artificial intelligence system capable of creating short videos from a text description. The contents are about five seconds long and have no audio, but they are impressive for being a tool in the testing phase. The company, however, did not reveal when it intends to officially launch it.
The tool works similarly to other image generators such as OpenAI’s DALL-E. According to Meta, the Make-A-Video builds on existing text-to-image synthesis work — many things have been improved from Make-A-Scene, announced last July.
The company has published some examples of text-generated videos. Among them: “a dog wearing a superhero cape flying through the sky”, “a spaceship landing on Mars”, “an artist’s brush painting on a close-up, highly detailed canvas” and “a horse drinking water”. ”.
In addition to creating videos from descriptions, Make-A-Video is also capable of putting motion in a still image and even creating variations of an existing video based on the original.
To Mark Zuckerberg, the work is an “incredible progress”. According to him, “it is much more difficult to generate videos than photos because, in addition to correctly generating each pixel, the system also needs to predict how they will change over time.”
On the tool’s website, however, Meta recognized some risks. The company claims that all Make-A-Video generated content contains a watermark to “ensure viewers know the video was AI-generated and not captured.”
The goal published a technical article explaining Make-A-Video in detail, but did not reveal when it intends to release it publicly, nor did it say who could access it. The company provides a form for anyone interested in trying out the system in the future.
OpenAI has released Dall-E 2 to the public
THE OpenAI released the Dall-E 2 for all who want to play with the tool. Before it was only available after registering on a waiting list.
Dall-E 2 is nothing more than a system based on machine learning that generates images from text descriptions, like Meta’s solution, Make-A-Scene, and many other companies.
If you are interested in playing with the OpenAI tool, just create an account on the company’s website and log into the Dall-E 2 page.
Initially 50 credits will be deposited, but monthly you will receive 15 more. If the free credits are not enough, you can purchase additional ones.
