Lore #79: Adobe To Integrate Sora, Pika, and Runway Into Premiere Pro

Good morning,

Another crazy week in AI with Adobe announcing they will be adding AI video-creation tools to Adobe Premiere Pro, OpenAI launching a new LLM model optimized for Japanese, and much more.

Before we begin, I’d like to thank everyone who supported the launch of The Next Wave, a HubSpot original podcast I am co-hosting with my friend Matt Wolfe! We’ve already reached over 4.2k subscribers on YouTube, 12,000 views, and even trended on Spotify in the news & politics section.

We just released a new episode with Greg Isenberg, in which he provides a step-by-step blueprint for using AI in your business. I hope you’ll check it out!


Google has expanded the availability of its advanced Gemini 1.5 Pro model to over 180 countries, introducing significant enhancements including native audio understanding and system instructions. This latest iteration, accessible via the Gemini API in public preview, also features a new File API and JSON mode for more precise control over outputs. Additionally, Gemini 1.5 Pro now supports audio and video modalities, allowing for complex reasoning across multiple formats. Developers can access these new capabilities and more through Google AI Studio, where they can also utilize the newly improved text embedding model that surpasses previous versions in performance.

Grok-1.5V, a first-generation multimodal model from Grok, is set to be released soon to early testers and existing users. This model enhances the processing of visual data such as documents, diagrams, and photographs, and stands out in the new RealWorldQA benchmark for real-world spatial understanding.

Adobe has unveiled a suite of generative AI tools designed to transform video creation within Adobe Premiere Pro. These tools, which include capabilities for extending clips, adding or removing objects, and integrating video and audio edits, are set to streamline workflows and expand creative possibilities for professional editors. Additionally, Adobe is enhancing its platform by integrating third-party AI models from companies like OpenAI, Pika Labs, and Runway.

Microsoft announced a significant investment of $2.9 billion over two years to expand its cloud computing and AI infrastructure in Japan. This investment will enhance Japan's digital capabilities and includes plans to train over 3 million people in AI technologies, open the first Microsoft Research Asia lab in Tokyo, and strengthen cybersecurity in collaboration with the Japanese government. The announcement coincides with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's state visit to the US, emphasizing the deepening partnership between the two nations in technology and security.
