AI Dreamscapes: How OpenAI's Sora is Bringing Text to Life

Open your imagination and say goodbye to storyboards! OpenAI's latest masterpiece, Sora, isn't your average AI – it's a video magician conjuring realistic, minute-long scenes from mere text descriptions. 

Picture bustling Tokyo streets, Mammoths roaming snowy meadows, or even a dramatic spaceman trailer – all brought to life with stunning visuals that adhere to your specific commands. Dive into a coral reef, witness a historical gold rush, or lose yourself in an enchanted forest with a dancing creature – the possibilities are truly endless. 

While still under development, Sora is currently seeking feedback from select groups like creative professionals to fine-tune its abilities. Don't worry, though, even with limitations like occasional implausible movements or spontaneous characters, the goal is clear: democratise AI power and let anyone experience the magic of creating videos with just words. So, prepare to be amazed and stay tuned – the future of storytelling might just be a text prompt away!


Prompt: A cat waking up its sleeping owner demanding breakfast. The owner tries to ignore the cat, but the cat tries new tactics and finally the owner pulls out a secret stash of treats from under the pillow to hold the cat off a little longer.


AI at Warp Speed: Inside NVIDIA's Supercomputer Powering the Future

In this video, NVIDIA unveils EOS, the ninth fastest supercomputer in the world, and explains how it is being used to power the company's AI breakthroughs. EOS is an AI Factory, a purpose-built AI engine that is designed to help developers build larger, more useful AI models faster. It is built on a full stack architecture that includes NVIDIA-accelerated infrastructure, networking, and AI software.

According to NVIDIA, EOS is used by thousands of NVIDIA in-house developers to do AI research and solve challenging problems. It is also being used by enterprises to take on their most demanding AI projects.

Some of the key benefits of EOS:

  • Faster AI development: EOS can train generative AI projects at astonishing speeds, which allows developers to iterate on their models more quickly.
  • Larger, more useful AI models: EOS can handle the training of much larger AI models than traditional supercomputers, which can lead to more accurate and powerful results.
  • Reduced costs: EOS can help enterprises to reduce the costs of their AI projects by providing them with a more efficient and scalable platform.
