Sora: The First-ever Text-to-Video AI Model by Open AI

by | Feb 17, 2024 | Technology Bytes

Turn your words into motion with just one tool in a few minutes.

Sounds overwhelming?

Yes! It is that simple now with Sora.

Open AI introduces Sora, the text-to-video AI model that can create videos up to 60 seconds in length. The visuals are of high quality and adhere to the user’s texts.

In today’s digital era, where Artificial Intelligence is a predominant force, the emergence of Sora carries high-value significance. The creators of ChatGPT have again proved their expertise and foresight by introducing this AI video model.

Just write down a video script and convert it into a high-quality motion video with Sora. The Open AI text-to-video AI model has come to launch on 15th February 2024.  Sam Altman, the CEO of Open AI, announced the launch on Twitter (X).  The Text-to-video model has become the latest AI design by Generative AI, as Open AI, Google, and Microsoft always search for creativity in areas beyond text and image generation.

Sora is yet in the process where it learns to understand and replicate the physical world in motion. Open AI trains the model to solve issues that demand real-world interaction.

“Sora is able to generate complex scenes with multiple characters, specific types of motion and accurate details of the subject and background. The model understands not only what the user has asked for in the prompt, but also how those things exist in the physical world.” – says Open AI.

Come, let’s have insight into several other aspects of the Open AI video model.

About to Hit the Ground

Last Thursday, Open AI shared a teaser of the text-to-video model on Twitter, followed by an explanation of how Sora can create 1-minute videos with “highly detailed scenes, complex camera motion, and multiple characters with vibrant emotions”.

The model is not yet open to the public. Open AI has kept the use of AI video model restricted to the “red teamers’ and some visual artists. The design is still under test and trial, so the experts can send reviews and feedback to the company before the final release.

Safety experts examine the model to understand whether it can create violent or hateful content and deep fakes in the Future.

Sora is waiting to hit the ground. The AI model aims to “give the public a sense of what AI capabilities are on the horizon.”

What Are the Upsides?

The feature that sets Sora apart from other AI tools is its ability to create videos out of long prompts. The sample video shared on Twitter has showcased how Sora can create a variety of scenes and characters in one video. Some of the characters and scenes include but are not limited to humans, animals, monsters, diverse landscapes, and underwater.

On a specific note, Sora adopts Dall-E 3’s recaptioning technique that offers descriptive captions for the visual training data. It can create complex video scenes with many characters, with a focus on intricate details of the subject and the background.

The AI model has an understanding of language that can easily interpret prompts and create interesting characters who express complex emotions. Sora can fit multiple shots in one video, which portrays the characters and visuals accurately in line with the prompt’s demand.

The AI video model can produce videos from still images and extend the video duration by putting appropriate slides in blank spaces. Not only does Sora follow what the text prompt requires, but the model also understands and implements how the elements exist in the real world and projects those in the video accordingly.

Know About the Downsides too!

Open AI has admitted that Sora has its downsides, too. At times, the AI video model finds it challenging to depict the physics of a complex scene or how the cause and effect works.

Sora may mix up left and right directions as well.

Open AI has declared that the experts need to take “several important safety steps” first to prepare Sora to be widely available to the public.

Above all, Sora may not understand the difference between healthy content and hateful content. Currently, chances are high that Sora violates Open AI’s safety standards that prohibit the use of violence, sexual content, hateful projection, and IP of users. Individuals with malicious purposes can create high-quality video deep fakes and offensive content. Institutions that deal with critical and private data, like banks, are exposed to the potential threats posed by Sora, the Open AI video model. The experts say that it is important that Sora learns from the real world and becomes a safe AI option in the coming time.

Research Techniques to be used on Sora

Sora creates full-size videos all at once and extends the created videos to increase in length. The model is enriched with the foresight of many frames at a time. The experts make sure the subject stays the same even when it goes out of sight.

Like other GPT models, Sora features a transformer architecture that delivers excellent performance. The model creates videos on past research in DALL-E and GPT models. It has a deep and detailed understanding of the real world that resonates with the visuals it creates.

Threats Sora Poses to the Professionals

Quite visibly, Sora is a clear threat to a set of digital professionals. The AI video model has the potential to replace video creators and graphics designers in specific cases.

It makes the job easy.

It takes less time.

It understands human language.

It can create complex videos.

The AI model makes it easier for designers to create visual content. Professionals without much artistic ability can also create appealing videos with Sora.

Final Takeaways

Considering all the aspects, Sora comes out as a foundation for other AI-based models that can understand and imitate the real world and incorporate the elements into a video in the same accordance. The way it can grasp the text prompt interests individuals and professionals serving the digital realm using the tool.

We are waiting for the high-tech AI video model to create a boom in the digital world within a few months. Till then, let the suspense prevail and wait for Sora to land and bring in motion.
