Meta unveils AI projects aimed at building the metaverse.


According to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who sketched out crucial steps to constructing the metaverse on Wednesday, Meta is working on artificial intelligence research to generate worlds through speech, improve how people converse with voice assistants, and translate between languages.

Zuckerberg believes the metaverse, a futuristic concept of virtual spaces in which users may work, socialise, and play, will be the mobile internet’s successor.

“AI is the key to unlocking a lot of these advances,” he stated at the company’s “Inside the Lab” event, which was live-streamed.

According to Zuckerberg, Meta is working on a new class of generative AI models that will allow anyone to define a world and generate elements of it. He demonstrated Builder Bot, an AI concept that allows users to specify what they want the AI to generate. He demonstrated how, as a legless avatar on an island, he could use his voice to direct AI to create a beach, then add clouds, trees, and even a picnic blanket.

As this technology advances, you’ll be able to create nuanced worlds to explore and share experiences with others using only your voice, Zuckerberg added.

He also said that Meta was focusing on AI research to allow users to have more natural interactions with voice assistants, a first step toward how people would interact with AI in the metaverse. He stated that the company’s Project CAIRaoke is “a fully end-to-end neural model for producing on-device assistants.”

The social network business, which recently lost a third of its market value following a disappointing earnings report, has put a lot of money into its new focus on establishing the metaverse and changed its name to reflect this goal. Meta announced this month that its Reality Labs, the company’s augmented and virtual reality divisions, will lose $10.2 billion in fiscal year 2021.

On Wednesday, Zuckerberg said Meta was focusing on “self-supervised learning,” in which AI is given raw data rather than being taught on tonnes of labelled data, to prepare for how AI may comprehend and forecast the types of interactions that will occur in the metaverse.
