100+ mints down, I suppose I ought to mention that the current boom in art rests on the shoulders of a few extremely talented giants.
@advadnoun came up with the original CLIP+VQGAN Colab based on Esser et al. (2021)
@RiversHaveWings later improved on it, and with the collective contributions of @jbusted1, @EarthML1, Abulafia, etc. there's now a vibrant and rapidly developing ecosystem. Diffusion models and better perceptor ensembles have already improved drastically on what I currently use.
