Introducing Pose-Tastic Text-to-Video Generation 🕺

New research from Tencent AI Lab and Tsinghua University in China makes it possible to animate digital characters perform based on written instructions.

Have you ever wished you could create a video of characters based on your own story and even control their poses? Well, some researchers at Tencent’s AI Lab just made that a reality.

Dance for your dinner.

They developed a new AI method that takes text descriptions and turns them into videos with pose-controllable characters.

Here's how they did it:

1/ They started with a pre-trained model that can generate images from text and added a special component for handling pose information.

2/ Then they taught the system to make the generated images look smooth and consistent over time, like a video.

Now, we have an AI system that can generate videos of characters based on text descriptions, controlled by poses. It's not just limited to poses, though – you can also use it for other types of control, like depth or edges.

Just imagine the possibilities this tech unlocks from storytelling to video game design!

AI Magic: Segment Anything with One Click ✂️🖼️

Introducing the Segment Anything Model (SAM) by Meta AI, a revolutionary AI model that can "cut out" any object from any image with just a single click. SAM is a promptable segmentation system that requires no additional training, making it a game-changer in computer vision.

Key features:

  • Wide range of segmentation tasks with various input prompts

  • Integration with other systems, like AR/VR headsets or object detectors

  • Outputs can be used in multiple applications, such as video tracking, image editing, and creative tasks

  • Zero-shot generalization to unfamiliar objects and images

SAM Demo

SAM's advanced capabilities are the result of training on a massive dataset of 11M images and 1B+ masks using an interactive annotation and model improvement process. The model's efficiency comes from separating the image encoder and mask decoder, allowing it to run quickly in a web browser.

The possibilities for image manipulation and creative applications are virtually limitless.

Best of all? META released a live demo and you can upload your own photos.
