Generative AI Worlds

Next frontier of generative AI

Generative AI Worlds

Generative AI has undergone remarkable progress in recent years, with the quality of AI-generated text and imagery today continuing to amaze. Other data modalities are following. The next frontier is to fully generate 3D worlds.

The first step to generative worlds is what we call a 2+1D bubble world approach, where generated 2D imagery is augmented with 1D depth information. Leveraging our recent research, published in the premiere deep learning conferences, we can realize generative 2+1D bubble worlds today, as we work towards full AI generated 3D worlds.

AI generated 360° panoramas

Gen360: Text to 360° panoramas

Try our alpha release. Major improvements in quality compared to our pre-alpha, with further improvements coming soon!

Click and drag the image to look around.



Generated 360° images can be used freely for commercial and non-commercial use, following the Creative ML OpenRAIL-M license.

Free Gen360 API

Automated API access to Gen360 available for free for a limited time!

If you live in the terminal, swear by an IDE, or would rather just postman, and if any of this makes any sense, then we have an API! Once you signup below you’ll be provided access instructions.

AI generated 2+1D bubble worlds

Turn your generated 360° image into a 2+1D bubble world (panoramic + depth) using copernic360.

  • Efficient Panoramic AI

    Published in ICLR 2021

    Efficient techniques providing significant improvements in computational complexity and state-of-the-art performance on low-resolution tasks. But still limited to low-resolution.

  • Partially Scalable Panoramic AI

    Published in ICLR 2022

    High-resolution input data but only low-resolution output data. Applicable for classical AI tasks with low resolution outputs (e.g. image classification, object detection and tracking).

  • Scalable Panoramic AI

    Published in ICLR 2023

    High-resolution input and output data. Achieves state-of-the-art for dense-prediction tasks (e.g. semantic segmentation, depth estimation). Building blocks for Generative Panoramic AI.

  • Generative Panoramic AI

    Early alpha

    Generative AI panoramas and videos using Scalable Panoramic AI building blocks. Early Gen360 alpha available now, with major improvements coming soon…

  • Generative AI Worlds


    Generative AI for 2+1D bubble worlds (panoramic + depth). Early pre-alpha through copernic360 available now, with major improvements coming soon and full 3D worlds next.
