Stability AI is providing the next iteration of its powerful text-to-image model, Stable Diffusion 3, to developers through its API and an innovative new creation platform.

Stable Diffusion 3 was unveiled in February alongside an early preview for a limited group of developers. Today’s announcement will help it to compete with major industry players such as OpenAI’s DALL-E 3 and Midjourney v6. 

According to Stability AI, the latest version of Stable Diffusion excels in “typography and prompt adherence” and outperforms other known text-to-image generators. The model is built upon a sophisticated architecture known as the Multimodal Diffusion Transformer, designed to significantly enhance text comprehension and spelling accuracy in generated images:

Furthermore, Stability AI has announced a collaboration with Fireworks AI—easing access for companies interested in integrating multiple AI models. In a bid to have more direct control and seamless delivery of its services, the company also disclosed that it would soon host its model weights on its servers, accessible through a Stability AI membership.

Expanding the ecosystem for its AI models, Stability AI introduced the Stable Assistant Beta, a “friendly chatbot”-driven platform aimed at providing subscribers with tools to generate images, write content, or sync photos with text through interactive dialogue. Currently, Stable Assistant Beta is in its nascent stage, offering early access to a select group of users, with broader access anticipated upon refinement and scaling of the platform.

Despite the progress in development and expanded access through the API and Stable Assistant Beta, Stability AI clarified that Stable Diffusion 3 is still under preview, implying that it is not yet widely available to the general public. The company emphasised its commitment to collaborating with its community to refine the models and asserted its conscientious efforts to mitigate any potential misuse of this powerful technology.

Stability AI’s latest introductions not only demonstrate the company’s continued innovation in creating cutting-edge AI tools but also its dedication to improving these technologies responsibly, with a focus on enhancing user experience and maintaining ethical standards.
