The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.
The corporation announced the integration of DALL-E 2, an OpenAI-based artificial intelligence system that creates visuals from text, with the newly released Microsoft Designer app and Image Creator tool in Bing and Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft Designer is a web application that can create designs and graphics. Designer app will be free for a limited preview period. It will be included with Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions.
In the next weeks, a new Image Creator app will be added to the Edge browser and Bing search engine. Image Creator, which can be accessed via the Bing Images tab, bing.com/create, or the Image Creator button in Edge’s sidebar, does exactly what its name implies: it queries the OpenAI DALL-E 2 service to generate images based on text descriptions.
Image Creator in Bing and Edge, unlike Designer, will be absolutely free. Image Creator will first be available in certain locations as a preview, which Microsoft claims will allow it to gather feedback before expanding the software.
Changing workflow process is just one manifestation of this revolution. Tools like Designer will bring AI to the masses and make Text-to-Image the new standard, the new normal for visual content creation.
However, keep in mind that Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI in 2019 and has an exclusive license to use anything. Microsoft is continue making significant investments in DALL-E 2 and it seems now wants to recoup those investments. The last question of who will pay for that, and how, remains unresolved.
