🎨✨ Google teams up with Adobe to unleash limitless art creation on Bard! 🖌️👨‍🎨

May 10 2023 | AI News
Adobe is partnering with Google to equip its AI tool Firefly with text-to-image capabilities. Firefly, which is currently in beta, will act as the “premier generative AI partner” to Google’s bard and allow users to create images, choose between templates, fonts, and stock images, before editing them. The images generated by Firefly will enable content consumers to authenticate the content’s provenance metadata thanks to Adobe’s technology from the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI). For copyright reasons, Firefly is trained on hundreds of millions of licensed images from Adobe Stock, openly licensed images, or public domain content, where the copyright has expired.

What does it mean?

  • Firefly: An AI tool developed by Adobe that is currently in beta and will soon have text-to-image capabilities.
  • Provenance metadata: Information about the origin and history of the content, including who created it, when it was created, and whether it has been edited or modified.
  • Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI): A project by Adobe that aims to help prevent misinformation and fake content by adding digital authentication to media files.
  • Adobe Stock: A collection of stock images, videos, and other media that can be licensed for use in various projects.
  • Public domain: Refers to creative works that are not protected by copyright and can be used freely by anyone.
