Creative Text-to-Image Generation: Suggestions for a Benchmark

Irene Russo


Abstract
Language models for text-to-image generation can output good quality images when referential aspects of pictures are evaluated. The generation of creative images is not under scrutiny at the moment, but it poses interesting challenges: should we expect more creative images using more creative prompts? What is the relationship between prompts and images in the global process of human evaluation? In this paper, we want to highlight several criteria that should be taken into account for building a creative text-to-image generation benchmark, collecting insights from multiple disciplines (e.g., linguistics, cognitive psychology, philosophy, psychology of art).
