HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Meta AI assistant is accessible on Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
  • In the US, it is initially made available.
  • The AI assistant features an image-generating function and can be utilized for both one-on-one and group discussions. 

In an effort to increase interaction on its platforms, Meta is introducing artificial intelligence-powered persona chatbots on Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp and empowering developers to build their own AI helpers.

Meta announced an AI assistant that will be able to generate AI images and search for solutions to users’ problems using Microsoft’s Bing, at its Connect developer conference on Wednesday.

28 chatbots that play characters portrayed by celebrities who have consented to have their voice and appearance utilized in the feature will also be available to users of Meta’s platforms. A sous chef named Max, voiced by chef Roy Choi, can create meals from a list of items you enter into the system. US musician Snoop Dogg will guide you via text-based narrative as the Dungeon Master.

At the conference, Meta’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg said, “This isn’t going to be simply about answering questions. This is for your amusement and to assist you in establishing connections with others around you and achieving your goals.

Check out what you can do with AI assistant 

  • According to Meta, you can speak to the AI assistant just like a real person. A bespoke model from Llama 2 (a generative text model) and the most recent large language model (LLM) research from Meta were used to create the AI helper. For text-based discussions, it has a partnership with Microsoft’s Bing to obtain real-time information.
  • A tool for creating images is also provided by Meta AI. It essentially allows you to produce “photorealistic images from your text prompts in seconds” and share them via chat.  By typing @MetaAI /imagine and then a text prompt, you can access this.
  • Both group chats and one-on-one conversations can use Meta AI. The company has not yet made any announcements on expectations of a global rollout, therefore it is only currently accessible in the US. The AI assistant is accessible on Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger.
  • According to Meta, its AI assistant can “make suggestions in a pinch, let you laugh when you’re looking for a good joke, settle a discussion in a group chat, and generally be there to respond to questions or teach you anything new.”
  • Additionally, it provided a sample of how to request a mocktail recommendation from Meta AI. 

Also, Meta developed AI stickers for Facebook Stories, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger. Based on word cues, the AI tool may create unique stickers for your stories and chats. It’s comparable to the AI-generated Bitmoji stickers that Snapchat already offers. Over the next month, a limited number of English-language users will begin receiving Meta’s AI stickers. 

The Meta messaging platforms will now allow developers to create their own AIs, according to the Facebook parent company. The Business is rushing to capitalize on the growth in generative AI after Microsoft-backed OpenAI debuted ChatGPT in November by introducing a separate feature that will allow users who cannot code to develop their own bots.
