Big Takeaway: OpenAI unveiled "Sora," a new AI tool capable of generating 60-second, highly realistic videos from simple text prompts. (See examples)

  • The technology behind "Sora" comes from OpenAI's DALL-E, using AI models trained on video and images to respond to user prompts.

  • The technology is currently being "red-teamed" by a select group of researchers and experts to identify potential misuse and errors. Once it is available for public use, we will let you know.

  • Other companies, including Google with "Lumiere," Meta with "Emu," and the AI video startup Runway, have developed similar text-to-video AI generators, but so far Sora has been noted for its superior length and quality.

Big Takeaway: Google introduced Gemini 1.5, the next-generation AI model, with improvements in performance and efficiency and a breakthrough in long-context understanding capable of processing up to 1 million tokens.

  • Gemini 1.5’s new model architecture is based on a Mixture-of-Experts (MoE) technique that allows for more efficient training and serving.

  • Gemini 1.5 Pro can process and analyze vast amounts of information, including extensive documents, lengthy videos, and complex codebases.

  • In testing, Gemini 1.5 Pro outperformed the Gemini 1.0 Pro model on 87% of benchmarks and showed comparable quality to Gemini 1.0 Ultra.

🔎 Extra Insights 

Meta AI researchers created V-JEPA, a new model trained using masked video to learn like large language models from text. It constructs an internal picture of the world and recognizes object interactions by guessing missing video segments. This video pretraining could make AI training more efficient, allowing more people to develop huge models.

Apple recently acquired the domain name iWork.ai, sparking speculation that it may highlight AI features in its iWork suite of apps, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. But Apple often buys domains without using them so for now this is just speculation.

A recent study found that 66% of Americans have seen “altered images” online. Clarity, a startup, uses AI models to scan media and compare it to a library of deepfakes, watermarking to verify authenticity. Walden Catalyst and Bessemer led a $16 million seed investment to extend their platform.
