A group of artificial intelligence methods and models known as “generative AI” are intended to create fresh and unique content, such as written text, music, photos, and even films. It entails putting algorithms through extensive data learning processes on huge datasets, allowing the algorithms to discover patterns and structures within the data and produce new instances that mimic the training examples.
By mixing and extrapolating from the learned knowledge, generative AI algorithms may create imaginative outputs, offering useful tools for activities like content creation, creative expression, and data augmentation, among others. A couple of excellent generative AI examples are Dall-E 2 and Midjourney. According to Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, Generative AI will soon be accessible on all of our gadgets.
This feature is coming to all Meta products, including Whatsapp, Instagram, and Messenger.
Zuckerberg recently provided more information about Meta’s aspirations for generative AI during an all-hands meeting for the entire organization. He gave staff members a summary of the company’s plans to embed generative AI “into every single one of our products.”
The introduction of AI “agents” for well-known platforms like WhatsApp and Messenger is one of the features that have been suggested. Zuckerberg himself has previously made reference to this idea. Notably, information about the Instagram AI chatbot was recently uncovered; it provides users with a choice of up to 30 different “personalities.”
Additionally, it has been stated that Meta is working on generative AI photo editing features for Instagram. Users would be able to change their images using text prompts and then share the edited images with their followers thanks to this functionality. In a recent earnings call, Facebook’s CEO hinted at the development of post-generation tools for both Facebook users and the platform’s advertisers.
The precise release date for these features is still unknown. But Zuckerberg seems keen to see ideas put into practice as soon as possible. Meta has organized an internal hackathon to promote staff innovation for new generative AI features in addition to promoting internal growth.
