OpenAI CTO Says It’s Releasing Sora This Year

Key Points:

  • OpenAI plans to publicly release its video generator Sora later this year.
  • The tool is currently undergoing “red-teaming” to enhance its security features.
  • Sora has garnered attention from Hollywood, with Tyler Perry expressing amazement at its capabilities.


OpenAI showcased its cutting-edge video generator, Sora, last month, drawing attention for its capability to create detailed 60-second videos with intricate scenes, camera movements, and vivid emotions. The tool, as described by OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, has produced impressive visuals, from serene snowy landscapes to photorealistic wooly mammoths.


While the tool has garnered praise for its innovations, it has so far remained internal. However, in a recent interview, OpenAI’s CTO Mira Murati revealed that the company plans to make Sora publicly available later this year. OpenAI is actively refining the model through red team testing to identify vulnerabilities and strengthen security measures. The tool’s limitations may restrict it from generating videos featuring public figures or explicit content.


Despite its initial success, closer scrutiny of the generated videos has uncovered some inaccuracies, hinting at potential exaggeration of the tool’s practical capabilities. OpenAI aims to address these issues in the upcoming public release of Sora.


The entertainment industry, particularly Hollywood, has taken notice of Sora’s potential, with Tyler Perry pausing a significant studio expansion after being impressed by the tool. However, concerns about AI potentially replacing human video producers and editors have surfaced, prompting OpenAI to emphasize collaboration with industry professionals to guide further development.


While the exact release date and accessibility details for Sora remain undisclosed, OpenAI is likely to implement a measured rollout strategy due to the considerable processing requirements for generating videos. The company recognizes the need for careful consideration in introducing this powerful tool to a wider audience, highlighting the importance of community involvement in shaping its future development.
