AI video is improving fast

Artificial intelligence startup Assistive has launched a new generative video platform called Assistive Video that can create four-second clips from text or images.

This is the latest in a growing line-up of AI video tools, joining the likes of Runway, Pika Labs, Leonardo and StabilityAI’s Stable Video Diffusion. The field is improving rapidly, with different underlying models showing strengths in different areas.

Assistive says it is particularly focused on improving photorealism within its model, which it is improving all the time. The current version is an early alpha release but is better than I expected, particularly around visual appeal.
