[.NET@Noon] Lions, and Tigers, and Stable Diffusion, Oh My!
June 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
**NOTE ABOUT HYBRID EVENTS:** This is a Hybrid event where it'll be available in-person and online. Due to Meetup not allowing us to list both a physical address and a Zoom link, expect to get a link via email to the Zoom meeting roughly 30 minutes before the talk.
**Topic: Lions, and Tigers, and Stable Diffusion, Oh My!**
The future is now. Highly competent, breathtaking imagery from a single text prompt is here now in June of 2023. Within two years, we will have real-time audio and video generated from nothing but a text prompt. This technology will literally change everything.
In this session we will cover the basics of how and why diffusion models work (within the context of machine learning), but we will spend the majority of the time demoing how to operate Automatic1111, the de facto project used for consuming with Stable Diffusion models. We will also cover how to operate ControlNet for more exacting results, how to fine tune small datasets with Dreambooth, and how to train large datasets with EveryDream2.
* 11:30am-12:00pm – Pizza Social (if in person)
* 12:00pm–1:00pm – Presentation
