🐶 AI Fetch Of The Day

AI video technology is advancing rapidly: First, we had Sora, then Kling, and now Luma Labs, an AI startup mainly known for applying generative AI in the 3D modeling process, has introduced a new AI model called Dream Machine.

Dream Machine is trained directly on videos (though they haven't revealed which ones) and can generate 5-second clips from text and/or images. Its demos show quality similar to Sora's, but the clips are shorter.

The videos are eye-popping. And unlike Sora, you can actually try it for free on their website—generate up to 30 videos for free, though it might take a while due to high demand.

Why it matters:

Don't underestimate the potential impact of AI video generators on film production.

Hollywood is already integrating generative AI into the production pipeline for graphics, visual effects, dubbing, deepfakes, and postproduction. As the technology continues to advance, its influence on the industry will only grow.

Carefully curated digital marketing news, tech, and actionable advice, delivered fresh every weekday. Consumed in 7 minutes or less.

The research paper discusses the development of a musculoskeletal humanoid robot, Musashi, designed to perform autonomous driving tasks. It mimics the human body in detail with redundant sensors and a flexible body structure that are suitable for motions with complex environmental contact.

The robot is expected to sit down on the car seat, step on the acceleration and brake pedals, and operate the steering wheel by both arms.

However, Musashi's performance has limitations: When turning a corner, the robot only slowly lifted its foot off the brake pedal, resulting in a two-minute turn due to technical constraints and safety precautions.
