Sora: OpenAI’s Video Generation Model

Why is it in the news?

  • OpenAI recently introduced Sora, an AI model capable of producing realistic videos based on text instructions, with durations of up to one minute.

More about the news 

  • It is a generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) model designed to generate videos with high visual quality and adherence to user instructions.
  • Key features of Sora include the ability to generate complex scenes featuring multiple characters, various types of motion, and precise details of both subjects and backgrounds.
  • Sora can understand real-world object interactions, accurately interpret prompts, and create engaging characters with lively emotions.
  • Additionally, Sora can produce multiple shots within a single video, maintaining character persistence and visual style.
Other Companies in the Field

·       Google’s Lumiere, launched recently, can generate five-second videos based on provided prompts, whether text- or image-based.

·       Companies like Runway and Pika have also showcased their own text-to-video models, indicating a growing interest in this field.


Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) 

·       Generative AI utilizes Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms to enable machines to generate new content.

·       These systems use previously created content, such as text, audio, video, images, and code, to generate new data.

·       Generative models learn how to create new data rather than simply recognizing it, such as generating images resembling faces based on given parameters like eyes, hair, or skin colour.
