Workshop Session

Generative AI Workshop & Tournament

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in Generative AI for creating graphical content in an efficient way. This technology carries a huge, yet controversial, potential. With this workshop, we aim to provide an educated approach to such technologies in the form of a contest where participants will learn to use one of the most popular generative AI solutions: Stable Diffusion. The aim is twofold: acculturation and competition! You’ll learn how to configure the solution and define generation strategies.
The event will begin with a tutorial phase where you will be guided through the use of Stable Diffusion WebUI (user interface) and trained models such as SDXL. We’ll introduce the main functions of the tool: models, refiner, prompt, negative prompt, resolution, batch, seed, etc. At the end of this tutorial phase, teams will take part in a multi-round tournament. Each round will have a different theme, like best picture, fastest generation, reverse prompting, and so on. 
We kindly invite people willing to learn the basics of content generation and have fun in a tournament to take part in this workshop!
