CARE-AI Seminar Series: Building More Controllable Text-to-Image Generation

Abstract: Recently, text-to-image generation models have gained tremendous popularity due to their capabilities to produce accurate, diverse and even creative images from text prompts. However, text prompts are highly ambiguous in terms of conveying visual control. For example, if we want to generate an image with "my own backpack" or generate an image with "my backyard" as the background. These control signals cannot be well represented as text. Therefore, we need diverse types of control signals to complement the text-to-image generation process.

Webinar on Canadian Nuclear Laboratories' Cyber Security Mission

CNL is actively working toward the development of a nuclear industrial control cyber intrusion detection and mitigation system for protection of critical state-of-the-art infrastructure. Join one of CNL's Cyber Security Research Scientist, Alex Amos, and a guest interviewer from the University of Guelph, Keerthana Madhavan as we discuss some of the cutting-edge work we are undertaking to protect global nuclear infrastructure.

What is Water Activity and Why Should We Care About It?

Water activity is all about energy.  It is a thermodynamic principle that can provide valuable information on the stability of a food product; from microbial spoilage, lipid oxidation, and caking and clumping to shelf life and packaging determination. But water activity also has uses beyond food. Please join us in discovering why and how to measure water activity, discuss specific food applications, and then go beyond the world of food to investigate novel applications like hydrate formation, building materials, and metal-organic frameworks.

The Walrus Talks Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is already part of our lives. It’s built into the operating systems in our phones, it’s the algorithms that define our social media and search feeds, and it detects fraudulent withdrawals from our bank accounts. But the possibilities of rapid technological expansion are causing many discussions.
