Introducing Meta AI: Your New Virtual Assistant
During Meta Connect 2023, Meta unveiled its groundbreaking Meta AI Assistant, which competes directly with ChatGPT and Google Bard. This innovative AI seamlessly integrates with WhatsApp, Instagram, and Messenger, making it effortless to complete specific tasks and even generate images, similar to services such as Midjourney and Stable Diffusion.
Seamless Integration with Popular Platforms
The exciting news is that Meta AI eliminates the need for users to leave these platforms when seeking assistance or creating images. There’s no longer any need to open separate apps or visit websites. This breakthrough relies on Llama 2, an advanced open-source language model developed through Meta’s partnership with Microsoft.
A Personal Touch: Meta AI’s “Personalities”
Meta AI will also feature “personalities” designed to assist with specific tasks. For instance, during Meta Connect, they demonstrated how it could help users choose Halloween costumes, even showcasing real-time facial expressions generated through message exchanges.
How This Tecnology Works: Simple and Familiar
So, how does Meta AI function? It bears a striking resemblance to existing technologies like ChatGPT and Google Bard. In a demonstration led by Zuckerberg, users simply need to tag the Meta AI chatbot on WhatsApp using the handle @Meta AI and request information, such as a cooking recipe, which will be promptly provided in text form. For generating images, users can use keywords like “/imagine” followed by a brief description to produce the desired image. Currently, it’s uncertain whether these commands will be available in languages other than English.
Engage with Celebrities in the Meta App
Within the Meta app, users will also find 28 celebrities who can engage in conversations on specific topics. Prominent figures like Naomi Osaka, Snoop Dogg, and Paris Hilton are among those featured. Users can effortlessly initiate conversations with them by calling their designated “codename” to seek advice, ask questions, or chat with the AI.
Emu: The Revolutionary Image Editor
Moreover, Meta plans to introduce Emu, a cutting-edge image editor, into its applications. This AI-powered tool will empower users to quickly customize image styles and add new elements. A standout feature is its ability to generate a new image in just five seconds. Zuckerberg also showcased how regular photos can be stylized with AI and used as stickers on WhatsApp and Facebook.
Emu will offer two distinct editing modes: “restyle” for infusing artistic elements into photos and “backdrop” for creating entirely new images from existing ones. For instance, users can instruct the AI to add backgrounds like a beach scene or any other desired element.
Meta AI Enhances Your Everyday
The integration of artificial intelligence into Meta’s social networks aims to streamline user assistance and enhance user experiences—all within the familiar apps users are already accustomed to. This marks a significant stride forward for Meta as it continues to offer an ecosystem of innovative technologies, including Meta AI.
A Complete Ecosystem with Meta AI Integration
Finally, it’s important to emphasize that Meta AI will also be seamlessly integrated into Meta Quest 3 and Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses, two additional products announced during Meta Connect 2023.”
