Draw Things - Stable Diffusion for iPhone

There’s now an iPhone app to do Stable Diffusion AI image generation. Free, runs locally, no data collected. When you first open it, it will download about 2 GB of model data. It’s for iPhone, but works well on my ipad air 5 (M1) and takes a little under a minute for 512x512 pixels. Lots of fun, though I need to learn how to talk to it. Simple phrases don’t even approach the uncanny valley (but I kind of like the mouse with toes on the tail tip…)

Deviant Art are pressing for industry adoption of their opt-out tags embedded in their user pages which would preclude any scraping of images for datasets.


There’s a great discussion of this issue (and where it might lead) on the most recent episode of Upgrade.
