Colloquium by Patrick von Platen, PhD, Univ. of Cambridge and Hugging Face
With the release of Dall-E 2, Google’s Imagen and Stable Diffusion, diffusion models have taken the world by storm. Most of you will have have already tried generating entertaining images with prompts like "a koala bear juggling eggs in the sunset in the style of van Gogh" or at least seen examples of what modern diffusion models are capable of.
Patrick von Platen holds a PhD from the University of Cambridge and works as Research Engineer at Hugging Face. He is the core developer of the recently released Hugging Face diffusers library , a state-of-the-art toolbox for building and running diffusion models covering unconditional as well as text-to-image, image-to-image, or text-to-audio generation tasks.
Patrick will talk about how you can run published models with just a couple of lines of Python code, or build one from scratch by combining and modifying noise schedulers, vision or audio models and inference pipelines. You will also have the chance to ask him anything about diffusion models, or what it means to build and maintain a library with >7.3k GitHub stars at Hugging Face.
