What is Sam Altman's new tool Sora?

Sora is an AI system developed by OpenAI, designed to rapidly create videos lasting up to a minute. It excels in depicting complex scenes featuring multiple characters, specific motion types, and accurate details of both subjects and backgrounds, at least in the initial version open to a few.

• Initially, Sora will be accessible to a restricted number of creators. OpenAI's CEO, Sam Altman, said that access is limited during the initial phase of deployment.

• Before integrating Sora into OpenAI's products, a team of experts will assess its safety, OpenAI said in a blog post.

• Other tech giants such as Meta Platforms Inc., Google under Alphabet Inc., and Runway AI have previously developed text-to-video generators. This technology has the potential to expedite the creative process, but it also raises concerns about the impact on artists' livelihoods and the potential for misinformation.

• OpenAI is working on tools to identify videos generated by Sora to address concerns related to the potential misuse of AI-generated content.

CEO Sam Altman asked for social media users to submit ideas for written prompts. The result sparked concerns regarding the ethical and societal implications.

How can I use Sora?

OpenAI said that it's engaging with artists, policymakers and others before releasing the new tool to the public.

“We are working with red teamers — domain experts in areas like misinformation, hateful content, and bias — who will be adversarially testing the model,” the company said. “We’re also building tools to help detect misleading content such as a detection classifier that can tell when a video was generated by Sora.”
