New AI creates completely fake minute-long videos and people are concerned

New AI creates completely fake minute-long videos and people are concerned

It seems that text-to-video AI projects are becoming increasingly popular.

Although job displacement, economic inequality and nuclear automatisation are just a few of the bigger concerns with Artificial Intelligence (AI), it seems that people are also troubled by the smaller and bizarre capabilities of the technology.

Taking to social media, users have been sharing weird minute-long videos that are completely AI generated and - not to mention - fake.

It turns out that if you input a few prompts into complex AI services - such as Sora - you can create mini-minute long videos - just in time for the Oscars.

For example, with this prompt, you can create a convincing view of what is unmistakably Tokyo.

Take a look here:

It does look pretty convincing I have to say.

According to the X post, the prompt is: "Beautiful, snowy Tokyo city is bustling.

"The camera moves through the bustling city street, following several people enjoying the beautiful snowy weather and shopping at nearby stalls.

"Gorgeous sakura petals are flying through the wind along with snowflakes."

Some of the videos have been shared on X (formerly Twitter) and it's pretty likely that a number of OpenAI apps - such as Sora - are going to be on the rise.

It does look pretty legit.

“It learns about 3D geometry and consistency,” Tim Brooks, a research scientist on the Sora project, told Wired.

“We didn’t bake that in—it just entirely emerged from seeing a lot of data.”

While Bill Peebles, another researcher on the project, also explained: "There's actually multiple shot changes—these are not stitched together, but generated by the model in one go.

"We didn’t tell it to do that, it just automatically did it."

In another video, Sora was given the prompt to create a tour of a zoo.

"It started off with the name of the zoo on a big sign, gradually panned down, and then had a number of shot changes to show the different animals that live at the zoo," Peebles told the outlet.

"It did it in a nice and cinematic way that it hadn't been explicitly instructed to do."

With a number of clips being shared on socials, viewers are shocked at what they're seeing.

"It’s so over I’m going to lose my job," one person wrote, while a second added: "Oh boy here we go what is real anymore."

"Next decade is going to be insanely wild," a third person thought.

"These results are insane on a whole different level," a fourth commented.

And a fifth described it as 'robot overlords taking over'.
