Revolutionizing the Advertising Landscape: The Synergy of Generative AI and Innovative Inpainting Techniques

As Seen On

In the dynamic world of advertising, where making an impact is paramount, the landscape is undergoing a transformative shift with the introduction of cutting-edge technologies like Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI). Thanks to its unique ability to generate diverse and novel images from minimal inputs like textual prompts, GenAI is playing a disruptive role in redefining what is possible in the realm of creative advertising.

The Evolution of Foundation Models—A Driver for GenAI

Laying the groundwork for this tipping point in advertising has been the evolution of Foundation Models. These AI systems have led to novel outcomes in multiple fields. Models such as Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, and Dall-E-2 have paved the way for the incorporation of GenAI. These foundation models serve as the concrete base that supports and influences the functionality and capabilities of GenAI.

However, as with any pie in the sky technology, GenAI brings with it challenges. Primarily these revolve around prompt engineering, the act of finessing the textual inputs to obtain a desired visual output. In addition to this, the creation of a large number of sample images for subsequent refining of the model is also a complex process.

Inpainting Techniques—The Creative Arsenal of GenAI

Bringing a volatile idea to life is a key aspect of advertising, and the concept of ‘Inpainting’ offers a promising solution. It involves filling in missing or corrupted parts of an image with plausible information, leveraging AI to piece together a coherent final result. In this technique, GenAI becomes the artist and the technology—the brush.

However, as promising as it might be, the inpainting technique also has its limitations. One of them is the restricted control over the positioning of objects within the artistic frame. Other issues include potential image artifacts, floating objects, and unblended boundaries that may fracture the seamless experience.

Striking a Balance—Bringing Creativity and Efficiency on the Same Page

The key to a successful deployment of GenAI in advertising is striking the right balance between creative freedom and production efficiency. An unruly creative process can lead to an ineffective execution, while an overly streamlined procedure may hinder innovation.

In this context, Amazon’s SageMaker presents a viable solution to streamline the deployment of AI models in an AWS environment. Removing the need to manage individual server instances, it scales up the production process, delivering time and money savings alongside.

Proposed Inpainting Process—A Step-Wise Breakdown

The proposed inpainting process starts with the user feeding the desired prompts into the GenAI model, followed by the hosting of the model on Amazon SageMaker. The system then generates a wide variety of images based on the prompts. The user then selects a preferred output, or the best fitting concept, which goes through the inpainting process to achieve a refined advertising output.

Benefits and Implications—A Glance into the Future

This inpainting process adds a touch of realism to advertising images, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal. The demonstrated results provide a glimpse of its potential and usability in creative advertising and marketing, revolutionizing the landscape for brands and digital marketers.

Incredible strides are being made in GenAI and we continue to push the boundaries of what is possible. As we look forward to what the future holds, we must continue to innovate and evolve—for as the advertising adage goes, “He who stops being better, stops being good.”

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
