back to article Meta teaches AI image model to stop generating human fingers like a drunk Picasso

Meta has announced a computer vision model that learns to recognize images while also building contextual knowledge that makes artificial intelligence less clunky and costly. "This model, the Image Joint Embedding Predictive Architecture (I-JEPA), learns by creating an internal model of the outside world, which compares …

      Impressive though it's output often is, I don't think any but the most surrealistic artists need worry too much just yet.
