OpenAI Can Now Turn Words Into Ultra-Realistic Videos

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

AI startup OpenAI has unveiled a text-to-video model, called Sora, which could raise the bar for what’s possible in generative AI.

Like Google’s text-to-video tool Lumiere, Sora’s availability is limited. Unlike Lumiere, Sora can generate videos up to 1 minute long.

Text-to-video has become the latest arms race in generative AI as OpenAI, Google, Microsoft and more look beyond text and image generation and seek to cement their position in a sector projected to reach $1.3 trillion in revenue by 2032 — and to win over consumers who’ve been intrigued by generative AI since ChatGPT arrived a little more than a year ago.

Scientists identify genetic mechanism responsible for plant leaf diversity

Posted by in categories: biological, genetics

Plant leaves come in many different shapes, sizes and complexities. Some leaves are large and smooth, while others are smaller and serrated. Some leaves grow in single pieces while others form multiple leaflets. These variations in leaf structure play a crucial role in how plants adapt—and survive—in different environments.

“Plant morphology is diverse in nature,” said Zhongchi Liu, a professor emerita in the University of Maryland’s Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics. “Morphological differences contribute to plant survival, including how well plants can regulate their temperatures and how efficiently they can transport water from their roots to the rest of their bodies.

Understanding the mechanisms responsible for diverse leaf forms will lead to a better understanding of how plants can survive challenging conditions.
