Meta has recently expanded its Expressive Media Universe (EMU) technology to include two new tools that focus on image editing and video generation. The EMU technology was initially unveiled at the Connect event in September, where it introduced a tool to create ‘stickers’ to be used in messaging apps.
The first tool, EMU edit, allows for precise editing of images using text instructions. This generative AI technology follows instructions to modify pixels in an 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.
Another tool, EMU Video, makes it easy to generate video from a text description through a unique architecture that responds to different types of input. It uses diffusion models for video generation, providing a simplified process for video generation tasks.
With these new tools, Meta is taking a significant step forward in image editing and video generation, enhancing the capabilities of its core content generation model, EMU. These tools offer advanced features for precise and controlled editing, as well as efficient video generation from text descriptions.
