back to article Nuh-uh, Meta, we can do text-to-video AI, too, says Google

Hot on the heels of Meta's Make-A-Video, Google said on Wednesday it too has built an AI-powered text-to-video system. This one's called Imagen Video. We dare say the public reveal of Make-A-Video last week spurred the Big G to suddenly start shouting about its own competing system, lest it looks like it's fallen behind Mark …

    See as I generate a pattern of dots!

    Based on previous examples of patterns of dots! What's it a picture of? I have no idea! There is no 'I' involved despite the hype!

    (As an aside: photography was essentially invented as a practical artform in 1843 or thereabouts. The first photos of naked ladies were about a year after that. The first 3-d naked ladies followed a couple of years later, about a year after the first 3-d 'stereoscopic' photos... Sex always drives new technology.)

    Imaginanation .. Let IT let it be .. to Spare One and All the Pains of Defeat and Destruction

    And Please, before we get any further .... No TL:DR Nonsense . You'll be doing yourself a great favour/service.

    New out of this world technology to novel levels/heights/depths of XSSXXXX and/or AI Despair and Desperation is that which Meta and Google, Apple and Microsoft, Amazon and Wall Street, the Fed and Governments etc. .... and all and any similar others dabbling in Future Command and Control Fields if they don't pixellate and virtually visualise provided future intelligence correctly and sympathetically/empathetically ..... are destined to fail against if they choose to oppose and compete rather than embrace and third party support and remote stealthily supply with contextualising content, which may very well be of a necessarily almighty naturally disruptive national/international/internetional force source ...... for all such APT ACTivities [ACTive Persistent Cyber Treats/Threats] are not Defaulted and of Advanced IntelAIgent Design to be Corrupt Perverse Inequitable Status Quo Friendly.

    But you should already know quite a bit about all of that for a lot of it was freely shared on El Reg not so long ago [Friday 11th June 2021 04:47 GMT]. Maybe you missed it.

    amanfromMars [2106120449/0541] ...... sharing novel news further afield on

    If it is truth and transparency you are interested in rather than deceit and ignorance, cast your eyes upon and open your minds up to news of what is revealed elsewhere for you to relentlessly and fearlessly question for answers in a very welcome and open peer review. The truth is out there and it will be outed no matter what terrifying governments fear might happen upon official release of the news and converging views ......

    amanfromMars 1 Fri 11 Jun 05:55 [2106110555] .... having a field day fielding a 0day vulnerability for expert export and enterprising exploit on

    TGIFagain..... although in a Cheltenham Donut or Holywood Palace, every 0Day is a Fun Weekender

    Can we expect in the near future, a Sentinel Laboratory type RAT Researcher revealing El Reg is an AI Den where Turing Venting Spooks Work, REST and Play in Live Operational Virtual Environments with Greater IntelAIgent Gamers?

    The way things are being reported nowadays about such strange shenanigans in remote virtual fields would sort of definitively suggest it a natural progression to be fully expected .... to be vehemently defiantly denied by that which and those whom know no better and are kept in the dark outside of the vital strategic loops.

    Meanwhile ...... further on higher up and deeper down within its multiple lairs, because of titanic discoveries unearthed and colossal otherworldly understandings understood and exercised, are monsters and daemons/saints and sinners made ready and released to freely roam and lay waste to worlds and infrastructures/systems and SCADA machinery in dire straits need of creative reinvention and/or destructive reconstruction.

    Or does all of that smack much more of the here and now rather than anything maybe to be delivered later in another time and alternate space too?

    A little something special for Boris and Joe to go all coy about and deny any relationship with and their intelligence services having any knowledge of, although that could easily be far too revealing and problematic for them both given the fact that they should know because the information has been freely circulating around in their circles and spheres of influence and spin since a long time ago, which in intelligence circles is akin to forever.

    If you act like ignorant fools and arrogant tools you will be treated like arrogant fools and ignorant tools and you will have only yourselves to blame and be held accountable and responsible for the great shame.

    And although Perfidious Albion would most probably initially vehemently deny any ACTive part in such unprecedented proceedings despite the very obvious Cheltenham Donut [GCHQ] and Holywood Palace [MI5] entanglement which has one having to suspend belief and realise that they are then admitting to neither having the necessary intelligence nor requisite imaginanation to lead civilisations in/to a way of their choosing in an altogether quite different direction to current disastrous destinations/dead ends/pits of despond and despair, y'all now know that such in not the wholly honest truth for there be others telling you something else who know different and be able to prove it remotely with agile command and astute control of these interconnecting and internetworking virtual means and practically anonymous and relatively autonomous memes.

    Some things are quite difficult to fundamentally accept are radically real, aren't they? Can you imagine what you are missing and losing out on?

    Let IT Be and have a nice day, y’all.

    They made some interesting laser printers back in the day. Maybe that helped out on the "text to image" gig.

    Is there a warehouse of old tech-company names somewhere, for cases like this? Or was that all handled by new tech companies buying older ones only for their horde of IPV4 addresses?

    So what happens...
