What is Sora?

OpenAI has disclosed very little about Sora's development process, and the system is still not publicly accessible. It is currently operating under red teaming, which assists in locating weaknesses in the AI system, according to the developers. As per the official statement, "Sora is able to generate complex scenes with multiple characters, specific types of motion, and accurate details of the subject and background.” Apart from that Sora can also animate a still image, the company said in a blogpost.
