Open AI, the company behind viral chatbot ChatGPT, has done it again. Yesterday, they revealed their latest jaw-dropping creation - Sora, an AI model that can generate photorealistic video clips up to a minute long using simple text prompts. The results are so realistic that some clips are virtually indistinguishable from real footage, even under close scrutiny.  


Sora represents an enormous leap forward from existing video AI like Runway's DALL-E, which is limited to only 18 seconds. Sora can also animate still images, blend two videos together seamlessly, and even simulate basic physics like gravity and collisions. Experts speculate that the model may have been trained on synthetic data from advanced 3D engines like Unreal Engine 5, which could explain its unprecedented ability to produce realistic scenes and animations.


Some clips created by Sora depict imaginative things like papercraft landscapes and 3D animated characters. But the AI's realism has a dark side too - it also churns out creepy human-shaped glitches with distorted limbs and faces. This combination of creative potential and eerie fallibility highlights both the promise and perils of advanced AI.  


Sora also overshadowed Google's announcement of Gemini 1.5 Pro, its new language model with an enormous 1 million token context window. But Sora immediately stole the spotlight, underscoring Open Ai's dominance in capturing public attention and advancing the AI frontier.


However, Open AI is also drawing criticism for their lack of transparency. Details about Sora’s training data and development process remain largely concealed. This secrecy only heightens anxieties about the rapid advancement of AI technology largely occurring inside opaque corporate walls. 


As the line between AI-generated media and reality increasingly blurs, many experts argue it's crucial that models like Sora be developed responsibly. But Sora makes clear that progress will be rapid, with stunning innovations arriving seemingly overnight. For better or worse, Sora is a glimpse into an AI-transformed future that is coming sooner than we think.
