OpenAI is continuing to tease its pending AI video generator Sora with yet more text-to-video clips that are capturing people’s imagination.

In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, OpenAI’s Chief Technical Officer Mira Murati said that Sora will be released “definitely this year, but could be a few months.”

Also in The Wall Street Journal interview conducted by Joanna Stern, Murati skirted the question of training data for Sora.

“We used publicly available data and licensed data,” Murati says.

“So videos on YouTube?” Stern asks. “Videos from Facebook, Instagram? What about Shutterstock? I know you guys have a deal with them.”

“I’m actually not sure about that. If they were publicly available, publicly available to use, there might be that data, but I’m not sure. I’m not confident about it,” Murati says.

“I’m just not going to go into the details of the data that was used, but it was publicly available or licensed data.”

Generative AI companies have become increasingly secretive about the training data used to build large-scale models such as Sora and image generators.
