Creative AI Battle: DALL·E vs Midjourney

Creative AI Battle: DALL·E vs Midjourney

July 2022 has brought us public betas of two impressive AI services for generating original images from text, OpenAI’s DALL·E 2 and Midjourney.

Both AIs offer similar “tell me what to paint” (text to image) service. Both use diffusion algorithms to reduce initial noice to an image matching your prompt, both utilise huge models trained on billions of parameters.

Let’s explore their features, strengths and weaknesses.
Note: when sharing AI generated image, always tell your prompt.

How to make use of Pi-Gen, a tool used to create Raspberry Pi OS images. Today, we’re gonna create our own Pi OS image featuring a Web-Based Kiosk with HDMI-CEC control. Minimalistic and performance-oriented. No desktop environments or Chromes to slow us down.

My specific use case is making a digital menu card to be displayed at three portrait mounted TVs in my friend’s canteen.
