Gaining Early Access: The Hunt for Vision
Getting early access to ChatGPT’s vision feature was no easy task. It required keeping a vigilant eye on various communities like subreddits and Discord channels, where access links were occasionally shared. Fortunately, I managed to secure early access and delve into the world of image analysis within the ChatGPT interface. With the ‘Default’ chat mode selected under ‘GPT-4’, I was able to upload images for analysis by ChatGPT’s computer vision capabilities.
Detailed Descriptions: A Lion’s Mane and a Lemon’s Mystery
The level of detail provided by ChatGPT’s image descriptions is truly impressive. From an intricate origami animal sculpture to a complex logo, ChatGPT was able to identify and describe various elements with human-like precision. It recognized the folds of the origami lion’s head, the resemblance of the logo’s character to a lemon, and even the intense expression on Eminem’s face. While it couldn’t directly identify real people, it came close by noting Taylor Swift’s resemblance without explicitly stating her name. ChatGPT’s image descriptions leave little to the imagination.
Creative Image Prompting: Unleashing the Power of AI
The real potential of ChatGPT’s vision feature lies in its combination with other AI systems, such as DALL-E. By iterating between the two systems, users can refine and enhance image generations based on ChatGPT’s feedback. This creative loop allows ChatGPT to ‘see’ the DALL-E outputs and guide the image prompting process. An example of this collaboration involved generating images of a full band of cats in a school using DALL-E, while ChatGPT provided feedback on how to improve the images. The iterative process led to the production of increasingly better versions, showcasing the power of combining AI systems for creative purposes.
