The recent publication of the Stable Diffusion 3 paper has brought exciting news!

Upon evaluation, Stable Diffusion 3 has surpassed other leading systems in text-to-image generation, including DALL·E 3, Midjourney v6, and Ideogram v1.

This advancement is thanks to its novel technical architecture — the Multi-Modal Diffusion Transformer (MMDiT).

This architecture provides separate weight sets for images and language, allowing SD3 to better understand our intent and produce more accurate images.

But are you particularly eager to learn about the intricate details of the Stable Diffusion 3 architecture and how to use it?

Let’s dive in together.

In AI painting, simply put, we need the AI model to understand both text and image information simultaneously.

To achieve this, we’ve utilized some pre-trained models to assist AI in “translating”.

The Stable Diffusion 3 team discovered that the widely used method for text-to-image synthesis — inputting a fixed text representation directly into the model (e.g., via cross-attention) — is not ideal.

Hence, a new architecture was proposed that introduces learnable flows for both image and text tokens, thus enabling bidirectional information flow between them.

Stable Diffusion 3 draws inspiration from the Latent Diffusion Transformer architecture.

It enables the model to learn in a latent space that is easier to comprehend.

Simultaneously, Stable Diffusion 3… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
