Firefly: Adobe's First Generative AI for Image Editing. Adobe has recently launched Firefly, a new "family” of creative work generative AI models. The company unveiled its first model last Monday, which would enable users to make high-quality images and effects.

The advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) have been extraordinary over the last few years, with more and more companies, such as Adobe, taking advantage of the technology to create innovative tools that can make life easier. 

Adobe’s latest development, Firefly, is a generative AI for image editing that enables users to get highly realistic results from their images without having to manually edit them. This breakthrough AI will revolutionize how photos are edited and make it easy for everyone to create stunning visuals with just a few clicks. 

What is Adobe Firefly?

Adobe Corporation unveiled its first model on Monday morning, which would enable users to make high-quality images and effects.

Firefly is the next-generation family of creative generative AI models coming to Adobe products, first focusing on generating images and text effects. Firefly will offer new ways to conceive, create, and communicate while significantly improving creative workflows.

Adobe's artificial intelligence has enabled it to produce Firefly, a natural extension of its technology over the past 40 years.

Firefly's beta phase will begin with text effects available, the first of several available options.

What is Generative AI?

Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence that can translate words and other inputs into extraordinary results. Especially in light of the popularity of AI images and art generation.

Using a simple language and a suitable AI algorithm, anyone can create videos, documents, and digital experiences, as well as richly illustrated images, art, and modeling materials. AI art generators can also be used for producing "creative building blocks" such as brushes, vectors, and textures that can be introduced into or used as the foundation for pieces of content.

David Wadhwani, Adobe's Digital Media business president, stated in a statement that the next evolution of AI-enhanced creativity and productivity will make it possible for the computer to work more naturally, intuitively, and powerfully with the human on the other end.

Where does Firefly get its Data from?

Trained on Adobe Stock images, public domain, or openly licensed content for which copyright has expired, the model creates content that is suitable for commercial use.

Adobe Stock offers hundreds of thousands of carefully selected, licensed images, ensuring Adobe Firefly will not generate content using other people's or brands' intellectual property.

The world's first stock for digital image licensing possesses a wealth of various kinds of licensed photos that Adobe would better counter possible bias, no matter what types of data sets and assets Firefly models may combine with.

As Firefly continues to develop, Adobe is exploring how creators may leverage individual assets to train deep learning tools that are consistent with their individual styles. branding, and design language without the intrusion of other creators' content.

Adobe will continue to work with the community to look at the future developments of CodingWithFirefly models. 

Content Authenticity Initiative

In 2019, Adobe launched the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) a group of creators, technologists, journalists, and activists leading the global effort to resolve digital misinformation and content authenticity. 

CAI works together with the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity to bring transparency to digital content. The CAI is working with other tech companies and publishers to increase input regarding digital content, its origins, facts, and authors.

Through the CAI and supporting organization C2PA, Adobe is working with publishers to establish open standards and procedures throughout the origin, production, and context of all digital content. Through its collaboration with Firefly, App Store Listings with content created using generative AI will consist of a Content Credibility tag.

"Do Not Train" tag

A large focus at Adobe is to pursue the development of generative AI, which enables customers to monetize their talents and is creating a compensation model for Adobe Stock contributors.

Creators who do not want their work to be used to train AI models will use a "Do Not Train" tag. In cases where a tag is associated with any content, it will remain in place no matter where it's published or stored.

Personally, it's still too soon to draw any definite conclusions regarding whether Adobe's new Firefly is superior to Midjourney, stable diffusion, or Dall-E in regard to training its AI, but it's showing some promise in the interim.
