Tyler Brown here. Hope everything’s going well. Yesterday I posted a video about getting access to Dali and that was really interesting. Shared some insights and results from playing around some of the limitations. Some of the interesting things that I had seen was that video and noticed on YouTube that actually had gotten a little bit of attraction comparatively to other videos that I had posted. So I thought that there’s a little bit of a blue ocean around people looking around Daley. I’m trying to find information on it trying to find resources on it, and with that one of the important questions that came out was what is Dolly Mini? And I know I’m going to dive a little deeper into that, but just quickly. I want to talk about how Daley Mini has rebranded to Crayon just so if people are looking for this, people looking for the system, they end up in the right place because this is a change that has been made originally. Dally Mini was built and then actually hosted on hugging face. And I tracked down the people who created this and it was. I believe I’ve got Boris here. Seems like a wonderful person, a very nice person.

And there’s also one other person I don’t know where he went, but he is there and I’ve got his his LinkedIn and I’ve got his Twitter. I’m gonna put these in the resources and links and if you want you can follow along. I think they’re, you know, it’s really fascinating to see people who are. If you look at his LinkedIn profile, like he’s just doing other things. And this is just like a project that he built and put together in a little bit of hackathon released and has just gone incredibly viral across the Internet and it just shows the power of builders, the the power of creators.

And what they can do in the world, even in a small amount of time, the impact that it can have, so they’ll be mini is fantastic system. You can see that it actually no longer works on hugging face. It used to. This is actually where I had my first experiences with it when I first heard about Dolly and wanted to play around with it. Found out that it was not.

Available to common folk like me. Now I’m lucky to be able to get availability, but I put in an application and and so I was using this and I was having a lot of fun and there’s actually some featured images on my website that used daily mini. Just thought it was hilarious and they are just for your reference of what tally Manny does. I think this is one of the most hilarious and interesting followers on Twitter right now. A few weeks ago it had like 100,000 followers. You can see just joined in February. Already had a million followers and basically what it’s doing.

Posting hilarious, ridiculous generations by Dolly Mini. And as you can see, very typical framework of the output for it in the system that has built is basically 9 images relatively. You know not as high as resolution as what the Dali 2 is is generating right now and often very paranormal. Very weird and then this Twitter profile is then collecting all these images. Here are that are sort of the weird ones. The funny ones that ridiculous.

Ones and putting them on Twitter. And obviously this has gained quite a bit of following. I don’t know how. I first, you know, probably just following I this one popped into my feed and now I have died laughing and I was also been. It’s also been creating imagination for me of when I have that now that I have access to Dolly two what are the prompts that I can put in or what? What kind of things are possible of being generated and like you can see just for kids selling lemonade to soldiers on Normandy beach during the day. So if you’re not watching this, you’re just listening.

You know a black and white image, but then literally these yellow lemonade bottles throughout all these images and so, although that’s a much smaller sort of model and they used a lot less parameters than Daley. And you know, just a small, you know, just a couple sort of engineers building this sort of open source thing. It’s it’s pretty incredible in its own right, and has again sort of captured the imagination of the Internet of the of the world. And I love that. And so again was originally on hugging.

Apologize for saying again again and then now it lives on Crayon which little you know. A little fun piece there with the AI in Crayon. And now you can type in. What do you want to see? I wouldn’t want to see a dog with wings flying through Tron. Let’s see if that generates something apparently right now because there is a lot of volume and you know just a ton of people now accessing those in playing around with.

What is going to be hard to stop calling Dolly Mini, playing around with Crayon. It’s actually taking a lot longer for them to generate images. They’re looking at scaling up services, but again, this is free. This is a, you know, relatively small little team who is doing it, so we’ve got Boris and then Pedro, Pedro. I think my Twitter is a little hammered right here now, but I’ll see if that loads in a second and then they’ve got a couple. Sort of frequently asked questions. And if you’re doing marketing, if you’re just you know, if you’re doing something that is even somewhat abstract or whatever.

I would highly recommend frequently asked questions and you can see why do they change the name makes a lot of sense. Open AI asked them to change the name of the application, so obviously there’s probably some branding and some trademarks there. It was nice that they just asked it didn’t do like mean things to them and then just avoiding the actual confusion itself. So I think that is a big part of this and we can also see some of the other questions here about the limitations and bias. How does the model work when there’s too much traffic? Why are the faces weird and then obviously? Can I use images?

Generated so you are able to support with the donation, but they’ve tried to keep this free. They are looking like they’re. I do see a sales e-mail here now so it does look like as the Internet has caught fire of this that there are more opportunities for them and they might be pursuing those opportunities. You can now see my dog with wings flying through Tron. I don’t know what it is, I just love the Tron Lightscape and all this stuff. This one I really like with the city in the back and there’s a screenshot I don’t actually know what this does to be honest. I’ve got that there. OK cool screenshot done and then there’s also a forum here as well too. So it’s starting to build a little bit of virality into the application by enabling the sharing and some really like some fascinating potential here, so I don’t think I’ve too much more to say on this. I’ve got a bunch of resources up here, so the GitHub I’ve got the LinkedIn. I’ve got to Twitter.

I’ve got a couple articles about how this has gone sort of so viral and and why people are so fascinated with it. I think it’s pretty obvious. Mark Zuckerberg as a ventriloquist. I think it’s pretty obvious that why it has captured people’s imagination and why they’re you know, so interested in it and then just a couple of other sort of pieces here on the history of of originally being an open source model. But it generates night images in July 2021 for hugging face for competition held by Google and then was released in 2022. So this has happened very fast since this has been released. The adoption of it, the excitement around it is pretty incredible overall and I’m excited to sort of fall along on this journey to see obviously the continued growth of of open AIS, Dolly and Dolly too. And all the incredible stuff they’re doing there with the resources, but also the sort of parallel journey of people who are doing open source and releasing these models.

To the world while trying to, Umm, you know, balance the potential for misuse all these things. The challenges with the cost to train these systems like there’s a lot of things to sort of think about and consider. There’s another system called Bloom that I got to do a little bit more research on it and I’ll be sharing some content around that as well too. But overall really fascinating thing. Just wanted to share a little bit of a video on Dally Mini rebranding his crayon. So if you’re looking for this stuff that you end up in the right place and you’re able to.

Generate some of these results that that I just showed you here with Tron, and if you have any other thoughts around this stuff let me know. I love love it very much. I’m super fascinated and great to see that people are looking for this and searching for quite. You know, searching for answers, searching for information on it so if that continues I will keep creating content around it that is myself. Tyler Braden.
