Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, told investors that the company intends to bring AI tools to billions of people in “ways that will be useful and meaningful.”
While Zuckerberg was vague about how Meta will add generative AI technology to its applications, he gave a general idea during the first-quarter earnings call. announced For $ 28.6 billion in revenue, and two billion daily active users of the Facebook application, exceeding (Wall Street) estimates.
Mita’s profits for the first three months of 2023 amounted to approximately $5.7 billion, a decrease of 24 percent compared to the same period last year.
“We’re exploring chat experiences in WhatsApp and Messenger, visual creation tools for Facebook and Instagram posts and ads, and over time we’ll explore video and multimedia experiences as well,” Zuckerberg said on the earnings call.
(Zuckerberg) added: “I expect these tools to be useful to everyone, and that includes: ordinary people, content creators, and companies. For example, I expect that we will attract a lot of interest in artificial intelligence tools that allow companies to communicate with customers and support them.”
“Over time, this will extend to our work on metaverses as well, where people will be able to more easily create avatars, objects, worlds, and code to tie it all together.”
It is noteworthy that the distraction on the issue of the company’s brand and Zuckerberg’s focus on (Metaverse), I slowed down dead It has begun building the infrastructure it needs to support these kinds of AI features, which has led it to spend billions of dollars retooling its data centers in recent quarters.
“We are no longer behind in building the infrastructure for artificial intelligence,” Zuckerberg said Wednesday, adding that generative AI products will be released in the coming months.
The unprecedented success of OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot has made generative AI the tech trend of the day, as Google, Meta, and smaller players like Snap race to create competing apps.
And after Meta released earlier this year a language model called LLaMA to researchers, it hasn’t yet demonstrated anything resembling chatGPT in a widely accessible way.
But it looks like that won’t last long, as Zuckerberg said today that generative AI will “touch literally every one of our products” and hinted at how the technology could specifically accelerate WhatsApp’s nascent customer support business.
And while Meta may focus as much on artificial intelligence as other companies, it is not giving up on Metaverse, according to Zuckerberg. He said that “the narrative that the Meta is moving away from the Metaverse” is not accurate, as evidenced by the planned debut of the next Quest VR headset later this year.
This, and Meta’s Reality Labs division responsible for virtual reality and (Metaverse) announced a net loss of $ 4 billion in the last quarter, and the company said that it expects “an increase in operating losses on an annual basis in 2023.”
