OpenAI continues to make noteworthy advancements in artificial intelligence.
What Does This Mean?
Simply put, DALL-E 3 can now create detailed images based on textual descriptions provided by legal publishers. Not only can a publisher receive automated text drafts from ChatGPT, but publishers may now create visual elements complementing these drafts.
Relevance to Legal Publishing
For those of us in legal publishing, this is a step forward in a couple ways.
For me, I use images in every post. I turn to LexBlog’s iStock account to find the images. This takes time and I am often underwhelmed in what I find.
Imagine describing what I’d like for an image – and overtime ChatGPT picking up my tastes, good or bad.
Some legal bloggers use images that explain concepts, legal or otherwise. They do so because it’s a more comprehensive way to communicate. Same thing, they’ll be limited in creating an image only by their text description.
A Growing Hub for AI
OpenAI is steadily evolving ChatGPT into a multi-functional tool that goes beyond text.
From the Times article,
By adding the latest version of DALL-E to ChatGPT, OpenAI is solidifying its chatbot as a hub for generative A.I., which can produce text, images, sounds, software and other digital media on its own. Since ChatGPT went viral last year, it has kicked off a race among Silicon Valley tech giants to be at the forefront of A.I. with advancements.
DALL-E’s ChatGPT is limited to a small group of select users. So it’s a wait and see before we see how it’ll be used by legal publishers.
If DALL-E’s integration is like anything else, adoption will come from both sides. ChatGPT’s offering will improve while we figure out how best to use the application.
