Everything you need to know about stable diffusion
The goal of this article is to get you up to speed on stable diffusion. You will learn the main use cases, how stable diffusion works, debugging options, how to use it to your advantage and how to extend it. I) Main use cases of stable diffusion There are a lot of options of how to use stable diffusion, but here are the four main use cases: Overview of the four main uses cases for stable diffusion.
How and why stable diffusion works for text to image generation
Stable diffusion is all the rage in the deep learning community at the moment. It’s trending on Twitter at #stablediffusion and gaining large amounts of attention all over the internet. We’ll take a look into the reasons for all the attention to stable diffusion and more importantly see how it works under the hood by considering the well-written paper “High-resolution image synthesis with latent diffusion models” by Rombach et al which is the foundation of the system.
Rethinking Depthwise Separable Convolutions in PyTorch
This is a follow-up to my previous post of Depthwise Separable Convolutions in PyTorch. This article is based on the nice CVPR paper titled “Rethinking Depthwise Separable Convolutions: How Intra-Kernel Correlations Lead to Improved MobileNets” by Haase and Amthor. Previously I took a look at depthwise separable convolutions which are a drop-in replacement for standard convolutions, but focused on computational and parameter-based efficiency. Basically, you can gain similar results with a lot less parameters and FLOPs, so they are used in MobileNet style architectures.
Creating Pleasant Plots With Seaborn
Creating pleasant plots with seaborn Seaborn is an awesome Python library to create great-looking data plots. It’s a bit higher level than the often used matplotlib and this blog entry serves as a self-reminder about the most frequently used plots for myself. It’s way to specify in a declarative way what you want to plot rather than plot details like markers, colors etc is refreshing and frees some cognitive space which you can use for other tasks.
DINO - Emerging properties in self-supervised vision transformers
Today’s paper: Emerging properties in self-supervised vision transformers by Mathilde Caron et al. Let’s get the dinosaur out of the room: the name DINO refers to self-distillation with no labels. The self-distillation part refers to self-supervised learning in a student-teacher setup as is often seen for distillation. However, the catch is that in contrast to normal distillation setups where a previously trained teacher network is training a student network, here they work without labels and without pre-training the teacher.
