Meta has recently unveiled two new tools that focus on image editing and video generation as part of its Expressive Media Universe (EMU) technology. Initially introduced at the Connect event in September, EMU technology included a tool for creating ‘stickers’ to be used in messaging applications.
The recent expansion includes two new tools that enhance the capabilities of EMU. The first tool, EMU edit, allows for precise image editing from text instructions using generative AI technology. This technology follows instructions to modify pixels in the input image without affecting the entire image. Additionally, it 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 an efficient process for video generation tasks.
These new tools represent a significant step forward in image editing and video generation for Meta. They offer advanced features for precise and controlled editing, as well as an efficient process for generating videos from text descriptions.
Overall, these tools enhance Meta’s founding content generation model, EMU, making it more versatile and powerful than ever before. With these new additions to its toolkit, Meta is positioned to become a leader in content creation and manipulation across various industries and applications.
