OpenAI is once again rocking the universe. In other words, it’s a typical day in the world of AI. 🤖

What’s new? OpenAI has provided a sneak peek of its groundbreaking text-to-video model, Sora, capable of generating videos based on user prompts.

How does it work? Sora aims to simulate real-world motion and interactions from a user prompt. It is able to depict complex, specific scenarios with multiple characters. The model, like many current AI models, reportedly struggles with spatial details, sometimes resulting in illogical or unnatural scenes. But despite these challenges, Sora’s demos (above) demonstrate hyper-realistic visuals. The tool’s release to the public is yet to be announced, but OpenAI seems to be in no rush. They stated, “We’re sharing our research progress early to start working with and getting feedback from people outside of OpenAI and to give the public a sense of what AI capabilities are on the horizon." As of now, OpenAI is only “granting access to a number of visual artists, designers, and filmmakers to gain feedback on how to advance the model to be most helpful for creative professionals.”

What are the concerns? As video creation becomes more realistic and widely available, concerns have continually risen over the potential for deepfakes and misuse. OpenAI is responding to these concerns by working on media detection tools and collaborating with experts to address potential harms, emphasizing the importance of learning from real-world use for the responsible development of AI systems.

“Despite extensive research and testing, we cannot predict all of the beneficial ways people will use our technology, nor all the ways people will abuse it. That’s why we believe that learning from real-world use is a critical component of creating and releasing increasingly safe AI systems over time.”



After many years of studying at a university, I’ve finally become a PhD… or “Pizza Hut Deliveryman,” as some people call it. 🍕

What’s up? The University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Science has unveiled one of the first Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Artificial Intelligence programs in the United States.

Want more details? With the realm of generative AI rapidly reshaping industries from health to national security, this new program aims to train innovative AI engineers capable of responsible and ethical application in diverse domains. The curriculum encompasses machine learning, computing algorithms, data analytics, and advanced robotics. This new B.S.E in AI program will begin in the fall 2024 semester.

“This new degree program represents a leap forward for the Penn engineers who will lead in developing and deploying these powerful technologies in service to humanity.”

-J. Larry Jameson, Interim President of the University of Pennsylvania


This guy is so worried, in fact, that he grew a third arm.

I’m going to write-in my friend Penny for president, because it’s time for a “change.” 🙃

What’s new? 20 leading tech companies have united in a joint commitment to combat the rising threat of AI misinformation ahead of the 2024 elections. Signatories of this pact include industry giants Microsoft, Meta, Google, Amazon, IBM, and Adobe.

Why? Major elections are taking place across 40 different countries this year, including the general election in the U.S., and the potential for AI-generated deepfake news, images, and videos have the potential to massively impact public opinion and skew votes. The focus of these tech companies is on countering these deepfakes to protect the democratic process.

Want the real info? This signed pact is a progressive step of awareness for the tech community, but in reality, the agreement outlines no specifics and without any concrete regulations in place, there seems to be little that can be done to avoid the influence of deepfakes on this election year.
