Zuckerberg cooled down to the Metaverse, citing AI as M**a’s main priority

Meta last year* Platforms invested heavily in the creation of the metaverse, and the company’s stock has lost more than half of its value. This year the head of the meta* Mark Zuckerberg announced the implementation of a new strategy called the “Year of Efficiency” aimed at reducing the company’s costs. It seems he’s ready to scale back investments in the metaverse and focus on developing products based on artificial intelligence.

In a statement to company employees and the public, Zuckerberg said investing in artificial intelligence is now a top priority. “Our biggest investment is the further development of artificial intelligence and its integration into each of our products.”— wrote the head of Meta* on your blog.

Using neural networks is not for meta* something new. The company has long used neural network-based recommendation mechanisms in its products. over a year ago* announced the creation of a supercomputer based on 16,000 NVIDIA A100 data center accelerators. At the same time, Zuckerberg stressed that he had no intention of abandoning the creation of the metaverse. “Our core work in building the metaverse and shaping the next generation of computing platforms also remains a focus for shaping the future of social connectivity.”— said in the message of the head of Meta*.

Looks like meta* shifts the focus from standard AI algorithms used to make recommendations based on user preferences to generative neural networks capable of creating content. We are talking about large language models that are becoming more and more popular. meta choice* makes sense, especially given the hype that has been building in recent months around the chatbot ChatGPT, which is based on Open AI’s GPT-4 model. Note that meta* has its own language model called LLaMA, but unlike GPT-4, it is not intended for use in the consumer market.

* It is included in the list of public associations and religious organizations for which the court made a final decision to liquidate or ban activities on the grounds provided for in Federal Law No. 114-FZ of July 25. 2002 “On Countering Extremist Activities”.
