Denoising Diffusion Probabilistic Models (DDPM)

Paper: Denoising Diffusion Probabilistic Models

Authors: Jonathan Ho, Ajay Jain, Pieter Abbeel


We present high quality image synthesis results using diffusion probabilistic models, a class of latent variable models inspired by considerations from nonequilibrium thermodynamics. Our best results are obtained by training on a weighted variational bound designed according to a novel connection between diffusion probabilistic models and denoising score matching with Langevin dynamics, and our models naturally admit a progressive lossy decompression scheme that can be interpreted as a generalization of autoregressive decoding. On the unconditional CIFAR10 dataset, we obtain an Inception score of 9.46 and a state-of-the-art FID score of 3.17. On 256x256 LSUN, we obtain sample quality similar to ProgressiveGAN.


See the following code:

# !pip install diffusers
from diffusers import DiffusionPipeline
import PIL.Image
import numpy as np

model_id = "google/ddpm-cifar10"

# load model and scheduler
ddpm = DiffusionPipeline.from_pretrained(model_id)

# run pipeline in inference (sample random noise and denoise)
image = ddpm()

# process image to PIL
image_processed = image.cpu().permute(0, 2, 3, 1)
image_processed = (image_processed + 1.0) * 127.5
image_processed = image_processed.numpy().astype(np.uint8)
image_pil = PIL.Image.fromarray(image_processed[0])

# save image
