Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to kick off developer conference with focus on AI, virtual reality



MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) — Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg will kick off the tech giant’s Connect developer conference Wednesday with a focus on virtual and augmented reality and artificial intelligence.

The company, which renamed itself Meta two years ago, will unveil the next version of its virtual reality headset, Quest 3, and AI chatbots and other tools and features designed to keep users engaged on Facebook and Instagram as competition from TikTok continues. It is expected to discuss. . That’s Meta’s biggest challenge, Insider Intelligence analyst Yoram Wormser said.

“A lot of these efforts around chatbots and stories and other ways to just keep going with AI-driven personalization and things like that, that’s a big challenge for the company,” he said.

Meta due to the slowdown in online advertising and uncertainty in the global economy More than 20,000 jobs cut Since last November. Zuckerberg has called 2023 the company’s “year of efficiency” as it cuts its workforce while focusing on more technical hires, such as experts in AI, to focus on Meta’s long-term vision.

Artificial intelligence is central to that vision. In the summer, Meta released its next generation AI is a big language model And the technology, known as Llama 2, has been made free for research and commercial use.

Like tech peers Google and Microsoft, Meta has long had a large research team of computer scientists dedicated to advancing AI technology. But the release of ChatGPT has been overshadowed by a rush to capitalize on “generative AI” tools that can create new text, images and other media.

Zuckerberg said at the time that people can download its new AI models directly or through a partnership that makes them available “along with Microsoft’s security and content tools” on Microsoft’s cloud platform Azure.
