With all major mega-cap tech stocks continuing to gear up with technology from AI, Meta has shown its commitment to driven innovation with new advancements. CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg announced the next steps to transform the Metaverse, Meta’s interpretation of the immersive virtual world. Firstly, Zuckerberg unveiled its newest hardware in the form of a VR headset dubbed the Quest 3, a new competitor to Apple’s recently announced Vision Pro headset. Next, several new AI-supported tools will be added to Meta-owned entities like WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram. On its messaging apps WhatsApp and Messenger, users will be able to create custom stickers solely from prompts, similar to OpenAI’s DALL-E. For Instagram, users will be able to use similar prompts to alter their own images, where Zuckerberg demonstrated his own childhood photo to modify his appearance to have blue hair.
Overall, Meta’s AI implementations have been noted as digital assistants, powered by Emu computer vision software. Its own ChatGPT-like service will also be able to pull real-time information from Microsoft’s Bing, making answers to queries more accurate and up-to-date. Digital assistants will also feature celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Mr. Beast, who will play roles in answering questions tailored to them. With all this intuitive software and gadgets, Zuckerberg hopes to capitalize on his vision for the Metaverse, where Meta subsequently doubled down on rationalizing its high investment to the developmental arm. Regardless, these new mind-breaking technologies continue to paint the picture of Meta’s next-generation digital universe.
