Given the growing interest in Generative AI, we revisit a conversation with Mark Chen, Research Scientist at OpenAI and part of the team behind DALL·E 2, a new AI system that can create realistic images and art based on natural language descriptions.  We discussed novel applications of DALL·E, CLIP and other key research developments that led them to DALL·E 2. In addition, we explore the construction of DALL·E, including the data sources utilized, the implemented safety and quality assurance measures, and the machine learning models needed for DALL·E 2.

In general, at OpenAI, we train on models on a large number of GPUs. … Ray is an amazing tool. I don’t know too much about the specifics of how Ray is integrated but I think we have parts of their system built into certain components that we built on our own infrastructure. But yes, we think highly of Ray.
