Stable Diffusion: Advancing the Text-to-Image Paradigm

Abstract: 

This session will introduce attendees to Stable Diffusion, a new text-to-image generation model that is more stable and efficient than previous models. Stable Diffusion is able to generate high-quality images from text descriptions, and it is well-suited for a variety of applications, such as creative content generation, product design, and marketing.

Learning Outcomes:
By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the basics of Stable Diffusion and how it works.
- Know whole landscape of tools and libraries for Stable Diffusion domain.
- Generate images from text descriptions using Stable Diffusion.
- Apply Stable Diffusion to their own projects and workflows.
- Understand the process of fine-tuing open source models to achieve tasks at hand.

This session is relevant to practitioners in a variety of industries, including:
Creative industries: Stable Diffusion can be used to generate images for marketing materials, product designs, and other creative projects.
Technology industries: Stable Diffusion can be used to develop new applications for text-to-image generation, such as chatbots and virtual assistants.
Research industries: Stable Diffusion can be used to conduct research on text-to-image generation and its applications.
