Impressive yet scary demo of Sora, OpenAI’s new video tool

This video showed some demos of OpenAI’s new product called Sora which can generate videos. I can’t even fathom what the implications are. From replacing animation / video production of short videos to spreading misinformation. AI’s capabilities are moving fast. I guess this was the next logical step after generating images to then videos, which are probably a lot of images combined together.

I really liked the interviewer Joanna Stern from WSJ and have watched some of her videos. She was willing to ask some hard questions like “where are you getting the content from? youtube?”, and “will it be before or after the US election?”. Sora is not available yet, but should be coming sometime in 2024.
