Launched last month by OpenAI, DALL-E 3 represents the company's latest version of a text-to-image model, offering enhanced image detail and greater accuracy in rendering faces, text, and even human hands.

When provided with an idea, ChatGPT will automatically generate tailored, detailed prompts for DALL-E 3 and work to bring the user's idea to life. If a particular image is good, but it’s not quite right, through another prompt, users can ask ChatGPT to make tweaks with just a few words.

Just like in its previous versions, OpenAI has taken steps towards improving safety performance in risk areas such as the generation of public figures and harmful biases.

3: OpenAI ChatGPT

Created by OpenAI, ChatGPT was launched in November 2022 and is an open-source AI-powered natural language processing tool that enables users to have human-like conversations with a chatbot.

Like all AI chatbots, Bing Chat can help with text queries, including research, writing assistance, coding, and much more. However, what sets this tool apart is that it can also accept image inputs.

Users can ask Bing Chat questions that are both simple and complex and use the tool for research, requesting summaries and product comparisons. In addition, users can ask it to reformat text and update images, for example. Bing Chat can ultimately take search functions to an entirely new level by allowing the user to direct searches by asking additional questions and providing content to move forward on a task.
