Denoising Diffusion Models: Introduction and Applications


Denoising Diffusion Models are a type of generative modelling which serves backbone of recent advances in image synthesis including Dall-E 2, Midjourney, and Imagen. These models utilise an iterative denoising process during inference to produce high quality samples. In this talk we explore the fundamentals of diffusion models, the intuition behind them, how they work in practice, and how they may be generalised to a wide range of applications.
