Create Images from Text with AI and Python

It all began with DALL-E, a machine learning model developed by OpenAI to generate digital images from natural language descriptions. But it is closed source and not open to the public. Yet on August 22, 2022, the AI art community was shaken by the release of an open-source alternative, Stable Diffusion, which you can install and run locally using modest hardware. Within days, PCWorld described it as the new killer app. And it surely is.

Google shuts down voice dialogs

As of June 13, 2023, Google will shut down all so-called "conversational actions" for their Google Assistant. Every action that involves a speech dialog, like food ordering, games, educational apps, story telling, every application that requires questions and answers, will be canceled. Effectively, the Google Assistant is crippled down to a simple command-and-control interface.

How to run Linux GUI applications on Windows 11

It's been a while since my last post about running Linux GUI applications on Windows 10. Meanwhile, Microsoft proposed its roadmap to bring GUI applications to the Windows Subsystem for Linux and now a preview is available. This project aims to enable support for running Linux GUI applications on Windows in a fully integrated desktop experience.

Implementing Two-Factor Authentication

Two-​factor authentication using the time-​based one-​time password algorithm can be easily implemented with PHP on any web server. This standardized method is widely used as an additional security measure for logins and uses smartphone apps, e.g. the Google or Microsoft Authenticator, as a second factor.

Augmented Reality with Chrome: Let Flowers Grow!

With Chrome 81 Beta for Android, it’s now possible to use immersive Augmented Reality in the browser. I have again created two variations of the original demo source code to show what is easily possible. You can now walk around the earth, having a closer look, and (hopefully) spread joy by placing flowers wherever you like.

A minimal Web Push example

Web push notifications allow users to opt-​in to asynchronous messages from a server to a web application. The message can be sent at any time, even when the web application or the web browser is inactive. This W3C standard, based on the HTTP/2 protocol, is now supported by Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, and Safari – but not by iOS.
