The new issue of TechInsider was one of the first in Russia to come out with a cover drawn by the neural network Midjourney. Neural networks also executed the illustrations for several of the articles on its pages. Working from scratch, the process took several days and was facilitated by Pic-o-Matic illustration agency co-owner and prompt designer Vadim Polyakov. The legendary Sergey Tsyptsyn, a leading expert on Metaverses and computer graphics, wrote a major article about graphic neural networks for this issue.
Also in this issue:
