Midjourney is a state-of-the art text2image model, which works on a discord-bot that creates images from textual descriptions, similar to OpenAI's DALL-E↗︎ and the open-source Stable Diffusion↗︎.
Users create artwork with Midjourney using Discord bot commands. Artists use Midjourney for rapid prototyping and the advertising industry has embraced AI tools such as Midjourney for creating original content and brainstorming ideas. There have been concerns about Midjourney's training set, which includes copyrighted artists' works, and its potential to devalue original creative work. Midjourney is working on improving its algorithms and is developing a web interface.
Midjourney is regularly releasing updated versions of its algorithm, with version 2 being launched in April 2022 and version 3 in July of the same year. The alpha iteration of version 4 was released to users in November 2022.
