Today we’re joined by Richard Zhang, senior research scientist at Adobe Research. In our conversation with Richard, we explore the research challenges that arise when regarding visual generative AI from an ecosystem perspective, considering the disparate needs of creators, consumers, and contributors. We start with his work on perceptual metrics and the LPIPS paper, which allow us to better align human perception and computer vision and which remain used in contemporary generative AI applications such as stable diffusion, GANs, and latent diffusion. We look at his work creating detection tools for fake visual content, highlighting the importance of generalization of these detection methods to new, unseen models. Lastly, we dig into his work on data attribution and concept ablation, which aim to address the challenging open problem of allowing artists and others to manage their contributions to generative AI training data sets.
