🧑‍🔬 AI’s Role in Creative Expression and Sora’s Biggest Competitor

Harmonizing the voices of AI: Exploring generative music models, voice cloning, and voice transfer for creative expression - This paper delves into the mechanics and impact of generative music models, followed by an examination of voice cloning technologies and their ethical implications. It then explores the application of voice transfer in music creation and its extension to other forms of storytelling and podcasting.

Mora: Enabling Generalist Video Generation via A Multi-Agent Framework - In response to the lack of competition to OpenAI’s Sora, this paper proposes a new multi-agent framework Mora. This new model can utilize multiple visual agents and successfully mimic Sora's video generation capabilities in various tasks, from text-to-video generation, to video-to-video editing, to simulating digital worlds.
