Meta will strive to make these AI capabilities available to people.
Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed that Meta (NASDAQ:META) has seen “incredible breakthroughs” in its use of generative artificial intelligence (AI). Like many other tech giants, Meta is also in the middle of the AI race, which has become the latest development in the market. Not only technology companies but different organizations in various fields have also started adopting AI in the latest developments.
Meta makes significant progress with generative AI
According to a spokesperson, the boss of Meta discussed the areas in which the company uses generative AI during a meeting with employees on Thursday. The meeting was held at the Hacker Square Pavilion at the technology company’s headquarters in Menlo Park. Notably, the event was the first to occur at the venue since pre-pandemic days.
In a statement shared with CNBCZuckerberg said:
“Last year we saw some really amazing breakthroughs – qualitative breakthroughs – on generative AI and this gives us the opportunity to go now and take this technology, take it forward and integrate it into every our products.”
Additionally, he noted that Meta would work to make these AI capabilities available to people. The CEO said the company will bring technology to people in a unique way different from others. He and other leaders discuss how AI could help create 3D visuals for the Metaverse. Zuckerberg is indeed pushing hard on AI as Meta announced that employees now have access to several generative AI tools. The goal is to allow them to develop prototypes while the company organizes a hackathon for them to present their AI projects.
The Meta CEO’s plan includes integrating AI text, image and video generators into its flagship products like Facebook and Instagram. The development will allow Instagram users to edit images via text prompts and share them in their Stories feature. Additionally, Meta is working to enable Messenger and WhatsApp users to engage with AI-powered chatbots.
Instagram would work on AI Chatbot
Meanwhile, Coinspeaker reported on Wednesday that Meta-owned Instagram is working on an AI chatbot. The case was revealed by app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi who shared screenshots suggesting the social media app is about to unveil an AI chatbot.
Additionally, Meta addressed the recent layoff at the same event where he talked about the “breakthroughs” the company has seen in AI. The tech giant began a new round of layoffs in late May. The new decision means that 6,000 more employees will lose their jobs in addition to more than 20,000 job cuts since November. While other layoffs have focused on the engineering and recruitment teams, the last workers in the commercial division.
