Google’s Search Generative Experience (SGE) will let you create images directly from a text message starting Thursday. the company announced. Microsoft has offered the ability to create images from Bing Chat using OpenAI’s DALL-E model since March, so it’s no surprise that Google is following suit.
Is that how it works. If you have opted for SGE through Google’s Search Labs program, you can simply type your query into the Google search bar. After doing so, SGE can create some images based on your message that you can choose from. The tool works with the Image Family of AI Modelssays Google spokesperson Craig Ewer The edge.
In a GIF, Google showed how the tool can be used to create images based on the prompt “draw a picture of a capybara wearing a chef’s hat and making breakfast.” As shown in the GIF, you can also refine the queries that Google ends up using to create each photo.
You will also be able to create Google AI-generated images from Google Images. While browsing Google Images results, you may see a box asking you to generate images based on your query; Those generated images will appear in a sidebar.
In a blog post, Google’s Hema Budaraju emphasizes that the company is trying to make sure it implements its imaging tools responsibly. The tool is not supposed to generate images that violate company rules. prohibited use policy for generative AIsays Budaraju. (Hopefully, that will prevent Google’s tool from being used to create images of popular cartoon and video game characters flying planes toward the twin towers, like Bing’s image generation tool was.)
Each image created with SGE “will have metadata tags and watermarks embedded to indicate that it was created by AI,” Budaraju says. During “this initial stage,” Google won’t let you create images that “depict photorealistic faces or any messages that include notable individuals,” Ewer says. (I asked if Google plans to allow them in the future, and Ewer says that “it would be premature to say either way” and that the company will evolve its approach over time.) And Google is limiting image generation to users 18 and older. older, which means that teenagers who have access to SGE will not be able to use it.
Google is also adding the ability to generate written drafts directly from the search bar using SGE. With your query, Google can generate a draft and you can choose the tools to create something that is long, short, or informal in tone. If you like the result, you can export that draft to Google Docs or Gmail.
I asked Ewer what models drove the draft writing function and was told this: “SGE currently works with a variety of LLMs. The models used in SGE are based on both data from publicly available sources and human supervision data.”
