Meta has recently expanded its Expressive Media Universe (EMU) technology with two new tools that focus on image editing and video generation. These new tools offer advanced features for precise and controlled editing, as well as efficient video generation from text descriptions.
The first tool, EMU edit, allows for precise image editing from text instructions. This generative AI technology follows instructions to modify pixels in the input image without affecting the entire image. It also incorporates computer vision tasks as instructions for image generation models, improving precision and control in the editing process.
The second tool, EMU video, facilitates the generation of videos from a text description through a unified architecture that responds to different types of inputs. It uses diffusion models to generate videos, providing a streamlined process for video generation tasks.
Meta originally introduced its EMU technology at the Connect event in September 2021 with a tool for creating ‘stickers’ to be used in messaging applications. The recent expansion of EMU technology includes these two new tools for image editing and video generation, which take the company’s content generation capabilities to the next level.
Overall, these new tools represent a significant step forward in image editing and video generation technology, enhancing Meta’s founding content generation model’s capabilities while offering advanced features for precise and controlled editing and efficient video generation from text descriptions.
