, March 3 (Zhongxin Financial Reporter Wu Tao) The "Trump arrest" has not yet happened, but the "photos" of "Trump's arrest" have been circulated on some social platforms.

These "Trump arrested" images show Trump being rounded up by police, wearing prison uniforms, undergoing labor camps, or escaping from prison. If it weren't for others reminding that this is an AI synthetic graph, ordinary netizens would be difficult to distinguish the real from the fake with the naked eye. Is AI composite graph already so powerful, and what principle is used behind it?

"Trump arrested" AI generates a viral image flow

On March 3, Trump posted on social media platforms that New York prosecutors were investigating a case and that he expected to be arrested on March 18. According to the British "Guardian" reported on March 3, a number of sources close to Trump revealed that Trump said that if he is prosecuted, he hopes to be handcuffed to appear in court.

I don't know if it was to "satisfy him" or for some other reason, on March 3, some netizens posted some AI-generated pictures of Trump being rounded up by the police on overseas social platforms, which is vivid, even if you look closely, you feel that this is a "normal" photo.

A stone stirred up a thousand waves, and subsequently, more and more netizens joined in, sharing AI synthetic Trump pictures, and even Trump's "fire and" big scene, from "arrested" to "prison break" to "fire union", it is simply a Hollywood script blockbuster.

But in fact, these are AI composite maps, according to the earlier publisher of the picture on overseas social platforms, just typed the sentence "how AI saw Donald Trump arrested and sitting in prison" on some AI mapping platforms.

What principle?

Large language models are nothing new to make corresponding pictures based on text descriptions, and they are getting smarter. For example, there are a large number of AI drawing platforms or APPS such as Wen Xin Yige in China.

The reporter noticed in the experience that some AI drawing software can also add "reference maps" in the "advanced settings". Coupled with text description, AI can help you generate pictures similar to the reference image, the higher the quality of the reference image, such as high pixel of the picture, clear facial features, etc., then the greater the probability of generating high-quality pictures.

Maybe some netizens have to worry, if you add a high-definition picture of someone, can any related picture be generated? It is understood that many AI drawing software on the market currently limits the generation of well-known character pictures, and the reporter has experienced multiple AI drawing platforms, prompting "Cannot be generated." "But it's not difficult to generate a picture of an ordinary person that is comparable to a photo based on a text description.

Some images will display "Images suspected of violation and prohibited viewing" after they are generated, which translates to "I have the ability to generate, but I just don't let you see it." "So at the moment, there are no technical problems with AI generating images of comparable quality to photos, just some limitations."

What other slots are there?

As mentioned above, the quality of AI-generated images is not stable, which is related to the platform's large language model technology, the style of platform-generated images, text descriptions, or the image quality of AI reference maps.

For example, some AI drawing software focuses on the "quadratic" style, so the generated pictures are always in the "quadratic" style.

In the actual experience, the reporter also found that AI drawing has shortcomings in the drawing of "hands", although it can draw delicate faces, but the movements of "hands" do not look so natural. Some drawing apps specially add the function of "painter" or "fine drawing".

Even in the above-mentioned Trump group picture that simulates a real person, in one picture, "Trump's two legs are obviously different in thickness and very different." Netizens who shared AI-generated pictures of Trump said, "In a composite picture, Trump has three legs, but there are still people who take the picture seriously." (End)
