Stable Diffusion Overview

Stable Diffusion is a powerful text-to-image AI model that was released in August 2022 by Stability AI. It uses a revolutionary diffusion technique to generate high-quality images from text descriptions. Imagine typing "a majestic lion roaming the savanna at sunset" and seeing that image come to life in vivid detail – that's the magic of Stable Diffusion.

So how does it work?

Stable Diffusion starts with a random noise image and gradually transforms it into a coherent image that matches the text prompt you provide. It does this by using a diffusion process that repeatedly removes noise from the image while ensuring it stays consistent with your description. Think of it like sculpting a statue from a block of marble — the AI starts with a rough idea and slowly refines it until it matches your description.


Occasionally, the version of CUDA and PyTorch are not compatible. To resolve this, run the following command:

sudo apt-get install -y cuda-drivers

Remember to edit the config.json file with a read-only Hugging Face key to pull the model weights.
