Revolutionizing the Way We Connect: Meta Unveils Exciting AI Experiences

September 27, 2023

In a groundbreaking move, Meta is proud to announce the introduction of new AI experiences across our wide range of apps and devices. Prepare to be amazed as we unveil a world of possibilities, where artificial intelligence meets creativity and connectivity.

AI Stickers: Unleash Your Imagination

Communication just got a whole lot more exciting with our new AI stickers. Billions of stickers are exchanged on our platforms every month, and now we're taking it to the next level. Our AI tool, powered by Llama 2 and Emu, allows you to effortlessly generate customized stickers for your chats and stories. Simply input your text prompts, and within seconds, you'll have a collection of unique, high-quality stickers that perfectly express your emotions. This feature will be gradually rolled out to select English-language users over the next month across WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, and Facebook Stories.

Image Editing Made Spectacular with AI

Prepare to witness the power of AI in transforming your images. With our upcoming features, Restyle and Backdrop, available on Instagram, you'll be able to co-create stunning AI-generated images with your friends. Leveraging the technology from Emu and our Segment Anything Model, Restyle allows you to reimagine your images by applying visual styles that you describe. Whether it's a watercolor effect or a collage made from torn edges of magazines and newspapers, the possibilities are endless.

Backdrop takes image editing to a whole new level by changing the scene or background of your image. Simply provide prompts like "surrounded by puppies" or "put me in front of a sublime aurora borealis," and watch as the tool creates an image that brings your imagination to life.

To ensure transparency, images created with Restyle and Backdrop will clearly indicate the use of AI, reducing any confusion between human-generated and AI-generated content. We're also experimenting with visible and invisible markers to enhance the user experience.

Meta AI: Your Personal Assistant Across Platforms

Introducing Meta AI, an advanced conversational assistant that will revolutionize the way you interact with technology. Available on WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, and soon on Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses and Quest 3, Meta AI is powered by a custom model that combines the technology from Llama 2 and our latest large language model (LLM) research.

Meta AI not only provides real-time information through our search partnership with Bing but also offers a tool for generating photorealistic images from your text prompts. Imagine being in a group chat with friends, discussing which trailhead to explore in Santa Cruz. Meta AI will surface options directly in the chat, making decision-making a breeze. And after your hike, commemorate the day with a digital merit badge created by Meta AI. Simply type "@MetaAI /imagine" followed by a descriptive text prompt, and watch as your personalized badge appears in the chat.

A Universe of Characters: Meet the AIs

Our journey with AIs has just begun, and we're excited to introduce you to a diverse cast of characters. Alongside Meta AI, we have 28 more AIs that you can interact with on WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram. Each AI has a unique personality, backstory, and interests, making conversations feel like you're talking to familiar people.

To make these interactions even more captivating, we've partnered with cultural icons and influencers to embody some of these AIs. From Snoop Dogg to Kendall Jenner, these AIs are brought to life by renowned personalities. Get to know them better through their profiles on Instagram and Facebook.

Building Responsibly for a Safer Future

At Meta, we understand the importance of safety and transparency. As we continue to test and evolve our AIs, we're committed to building responsibly. We value your feedback and interactions with our AIs, as they play a crucial role in improving our AI models and enhancing the overall user experience.

What's Next: AI Studio and Beyond

The future holds even more exciting possibilities as we introduce AI Studio, a platform that empowers developers, both coders, and non-coders, to build their own AIs. In the coming weeks, developers will have access to our APIs, enabling them to create third-party AIs for our messaging services, starting with Messenger and expanding to WhatsApp.

Businesses will also have the opportunity to create AIs that reflect their brand's values and enhance customer service experiences. From small businesses to large enterprises, AI will revolutionize the way we connect and engage with customers.

In conclusion, Meta is proud to unveil these innovative AI experiences that will redefine the way we connect, communicate, and create. Get ready to embark on an extraordinary journey where AI meets imagination, and the possibilities are endless. Join us as we shape the future of technology and unlock new realms of creativity and expression.
