OpenAI Allows Users to Edit Faces with DALL-E 2
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Open Ai now allows its users to edit faces with DALL-E2, earlier this option was disabled.

The latest feature allows users to upload faces and edit them using the AI-powered image-generating system

Earlier OpenAI enabled users to work with and share photorealistic faces. The ability to upload any photo that might portray a real person was blocked. This included photos of prominent celebrities and public figures.

The artificial intelligence (AI) research laboratory has now implemented an improved safety system. It makes it possible to edit faces by “minimizing the potential of harm” from deepfakes as well as attempts to create sexual, political and violent content. 

OpenAi in an email to its customers said, we have heard from you, the users, that there are many people who miss the use of DALL-E to create outfits and hairstyles for themselves and backgrounds for family photos. We also heard from a surgeon that he has been using DALL-E to help his patients visualize their results beforehand, and filmmakers have said they want to be able to edit images of scenes including people to help speed up the creative process. To suffice all these requests they built new detection and response techniques to stop misuse.

These changes will not make a huge impact as OpenAI will continue to prohibit uploading pictures of people without their consent or images that users don’t have the rights to. Though it is not yet clear how consistent the company’s historically been about enforcing those policies.

Deepfakes have many forms from fake vacation photos to presidents of war-torn countries. OpenAI’s filtering technology will be tested to see if it is accurate in preventing Deepfakes abuse.

OpenAI is backed by companies like Microsoft and notable VC firms including Khosla Ventures. With restrictions on DALL-E 2 for the time being, OpenAI is maintaining the status quo.
