Yishu Miao and Ziyu Wang, two former DeepMind whizz-kids, have just unveiled their latest creation: Haiper. This innovative video-generation tool, powered by its own unique AI model, is set to shake up the market.

Previously part of the Global Trust & Safety team at TikTok, Miao joined forces with Wang, a research scientist veteran from both DeepMind and Google. Their combined expertise in machine learning led them to tackle the challenge of 3D reconstruction using neural networks. However, video generation proved to be an even more captivating problem, and thus, Haiper was born.

Backed by a whopping $13.8 million seed round led by Octopus Ventures and 5Y Capital, Haiper enables users to generate videos for free by simply typing in text prompts. Although there are currently limitations on video length and quality, the site offers exciting features like image animation and video repainting.

Despite the buzz around its consumer-facing website, Haiper's main goal is to develop a core video-generation model that could be offered to others. The company is also keen on open sourcing its models in the future to allow for exploration of different use cases.

With competition from OpenAI's Sora and other industry giants like Google and Nvidia-backed Runway, Haiper has its work cut out. However, with its focus on overcoming the uncanny valley problem in video generation, Haiper is poised to make significant strides in this exciting field.

So, whether you're a tech enthusiast or a business owner looking for the next big thing in AI tools, keep your eyes peeled for Haiper. It's set to be a game-changer!
