1️⃣ How Can We Generate A New Concept That Has Never Been Seen? Researchers at Tel Aviv University Propose ConceptLab: Creative Generation Using Diffusion Prior Constraints [Paper] [Blog]

Different text-to-image generative models have paved the way for an exciting new field where written words can be transformed into vibrant, engrossing visual representations. The capacity to conceptualize distinctive ideas inside fresh circumstances has been further expanded by the explosion of personalization techniques as a logical evolution. A number of algorithms have been developed that simulate creative behaviors or aim to enhance and augment human creative processes.

Researchers have been putting in efforts to find out how one can use these technologies to create wholly original and inventive notions. For that, in a recent research paper, a team of researchers from Tel Aviv University introduced Concept Lab in the field of inventive text-to-image generation. The basic goal in this domain is to provide fresh examples that fall within a broad categorization. Considering the challenge of developing a new breed of pet that is radically different from all the breeds we are accustomed to, the domain of Diffusion Prior models is the main tool in this research. 

2️⃣ Meet PUG: A New AI Research from Meta AI on Photorealistic, Semantically Controllable Datasets Using Unreal Engine for Robust Model Evaluation [Blog] [Paper]

Researchers from the Meta AI (FAIR), Mila-Quebec AI Institute, and Université de Montréal provide a new collection of synthetic Photorealistic Unreal Graphics (PUG) datasets, created with the representation learning research community in mind and featuring vastly more realistic images than those available in the public domain at present. The Unreal Engine [EpicGames] was used to create the environments, which is lauded for its realism and is utilized extensively in the video gaming and entertainment sectors. They also introduce the TorchMultiverse Python package, which, in addition to pre-rendered static picture datasets, provides a simple Python interface to allow for easily controlled dataset production from any given PUG environment.

3️⃣ Can Large-Scale Language Models Replace Humans in Text Evaluation Tasks? This AI Paper Proposes to Use LLM for Evaluating the Quality of Texts to Serve as an Alternative to Human Evaluation [Paper] [Blog]

Human evaluation has been used to evaluate the performance of natural language processing models and algorithms for denoting text quality. Still, human evaluation is only sometimes consistent and may not be reproducible as it is hard to recruit the same human evaluators and return the same evaluation as the evaluator uses a different number of factors, including the subjectivity or differences in their interpretation of the evaluation criteria.

The researchers from National Taiwan University have studied the use of “large-scale language models” (models trained to model human language. They are trained using large amounts of textual data accessible on the Web, and as a result, they learn how to use a person’s language) as a new evaluation method to address this reproducibility issue. The researchers presented the LLMs with the same instructions, samples to be evaluated, and questions used to conduct human evaluation and then asked the LLMs to generate responses to those questions. They used human and LLM evaluation to evaluate the texts in two NLP tasks: open-ended story generation and adversarial attacks.

4️⃣ Train LLM with a Simple English Prompt! Meet gpt-llm-trainer: The Easiest Way to Train a Task-Specific LLM [Project] [Blog]

A form of AI called large language models (LLMs) has been proven to produce text on par with a human’s. Unfortunately, training LLMs is a resource-intensive operation requiring high-powered computers and a vast volume of data.

gpt-llm-trainer is a program that facilitates LLM training on local machines. It employs the GPT-4 language model to train a unique LLM to produce a dataset of questions and answers. The software also allows the model to be fine-tuned for a specific goal, such as text generation, language translation, or creative writing.
