Stable Diffusion on Form Factor Devices

In the tech news, you may have heard of the trend of using AI to create images from text. Many different models do this, but the newest model, Stable Diffusion, has released its code and model weights publicly, unlike previous proprietary text-to-image models like DALL-E and Midjourney which are only accessible via the cloud. Developed by Stability AI, CompVis LMU, and Runway, Stable Diffusion can run on most consumer or commercial hardware equipped with at least 8GB VRAM.

Chief Technology Officer of Now Micro, Bernard Carter, has made a vlog series using Stable Diffusion on OpenVINO with various hardware. Watch the videos below to learn more about this emerging technology.
