Training cost for Stable Diffusion was just $600,000 and that is a good sign for AI progress

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Stable Diffusion is a powerful open-source image AI that competes with OpenAI’s DALL-E 2. The AI training was probably rather cheap in comparison.

Anyone interested can download the model of the open-source image AI Stable Diffusion for free from Github and run it locally on a compatible graphics card. This must be reasonably powerful (at least 5.1 GB VRAM), but you don’t need a high-end computer.

In addition to the local, free version, the Stable Diffusion team also offers access via a web interface. For about $12, you get roughly 1,000 image prompts.
