The company hopes DALL-E 3—the new and vastly improved version of its AI image generator—will have the same impact. Previous image generators, says Open­AI’s Aditya Ramesh, the inventor of DALL-E 3, require learning a new technical language, including appending strings with minuses and numbers, to get the best results. Not so with DALL-E 3, which folds into ChatGPT so users can enter conversational commands and get an image that matches their description.
