Meta launches new generative AI tool for free for research, commercial use
Community Forums are part of a wider ethos of transparency, accountability and collaboration. We will publicly release the findings so other technology companies, academics, and society can benefit from the democratic insights gleaned from participants. Generally speaking, we believe that as powerful new technologies like generative AI are developed, companies need to be more open about the way their systems work. For example, we’re a founding member of Partnership on AI, and announced last week that we are participating in its Framework for Collective Action on Synthetic Media, an important step in ensuring responsible guardrails are established around AI-generated content. As well as Community Forums, we established the Oversight Board in 2020 – an independent and expert-led body that operates as a check and balance on Meta’s content decisions.
This is notable, given that its lack of consumer-facing AI products has made it less visible. Meta has created an “AI Sandbox” where it is testing early versions of several new tools and features powered by generative AI. Only a small group of advertisers currently have access, but more advertisers will be invited to participate in July 2023, with access gradually expanding throughout the year. On May 11 the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp unveiled several new generative AI applications for its platform that it is currently trialing with a small group of advertisers.

Meta is also building out its Meta Advantage suite of ad products focused on automation that launched last year. Advantage+ Shopping, the program’s commerce-oriented feature, improves cost-per-action by 17% and return on ad spend by 32% on average, according to slides shared during the presentation. I started writing news for the InfoQ .NET queue as a way of keeping up to date with technology, but I got so much more out of it. I met knowledgeable people, got global visibility, and improved my writing skills.
Last quarter, Meta said advertisers saw 20% more conversions on ads, with outcomes like clicks and sales, compared to the year before. In an interview with Nikkei Asia, Meta’s CTO Andrew Bosworth, said the company expects to ship tools to create ads with AI that help a company make different images for different audiences. “As marketers prepare to [use] these new AI-powered tools, like Sandbox, they need to remain focused on security, fraud, brand reputation and business threats,” Greene said.
And I can also disseminate my learnings to the wider tech community and understand how the technologies are used in the real world. In a world ruled by algorithms, SEJ brings timely, relevant information for SEOs, marketers, and entrepreneurs to optimize and grow their businesses — and careers. In related news, Meta announced the release of LLaMA – Large Language Model Meta AI in an effort to democratize access for researchers. It will be available for noncommercial licensing, specifically for research use cases.
- This feature helps them to tailor their message for a range of demographics while keeping the core idea of the message intact.
- This positive momentum further strengthens the company’s position as a leader in the tech industry and enhances its vision to deliver innovative solutions for advertisers.
- The AudioCraft family of models are capable of producing high-quality audio with long-term consistency, and they’re easy to use.
- Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, launched a suite of generative artificial intelligence (AI) models on Aug. 2 called AudioCraft for music creation from various inputs, according to a blog post.
- Researchers can choose from 7B, 13B, 33B, and 65B parameter models, the smallest of which is trained on one trillion tokens.
- Most competitive apps on the App Store offer only limited AI edits for free, but then push users into ongoing subscriptions to try all the features.
The tools, detailed to reporters at Meta’s offices in Manhattan Thursday, show the Facebook and Instagram owner following its tech peers in investing more heavily in AI as the sector hits fresh peaks of hype driven by the popularity of software like ChatGPT. Meta AI has introduced CM3leon, a novel multimodal model combining text and image production. This model is the first of its type, using a modified formula from text-only language models to deliver remarkable outcomes with unequaled computational efficiency. Meta has yet to roll out any consumer-facing generative AI products, although it announced last month that it was working with a small group of advertisers to test tools that use AI to generate image backgrounds and variations of written copy for their ad campaigns.
Meta Announces New Top-Level Product Group For Generative AI
Founder of the DevEducation project
A prolific businessman and investor, and the founder of several large companies in Israel, the USA and the UAE, Yakov’s corporation comprises over 2,000 employees all over the world. He graduated from the University of Oxford in the UK and Technion in Israel, before moving on to study complex systems science at NECSI in the USA. Yakov has a Masters in Software Development.
The model is based on deliberative polling, an approach that has been used by governments around the world, in which representative groups have the opportunity to learn about complex issues before sharing their perspectives. This differs substantially from more typical user experience surveys, where people are polled for their impressions but don’t necessarily have familiarity with the subject matter. To bring more people into this process, we need to innovate with new approaches to governance and decision-making.
The company has also been reorganizing its AI divisions and spending heavily to whip its infrastructure into shape, after determining early last year that it lacked the hardware and software capacity to support its AI product needs. In the end, the push will see these tools getting smarter, and better at understanding each of our queries. So while generative AI is impressive in what it can provide now, it’s getting closer to being more reliable as an assistive tool, and likely a bigger part of your workflow too.
The announcement noted that the company is experimenting with AI-powered chat on WhatsApp and Messenger along with filters for Instagram. Today, the organization led by Mark Zuckerberg said that it aims to use generative AI in creating ads for different companies by the end of the year. Meta Platforms Inc., the parent of Facebook and Instagram, is investing heavily in artificial intelligence (AI) and this will benefit its metaverse businesses, which fell short of expectations last year, Meta’s Chief Technology Officer Andrew Bosworth told Nikkei Asia. In addition, the outpainting feature will be welcomed by advertisers and designers everywhere. The need to create ad image variants for multiple aspect ratios is annoying and inefficient. You may know that Synthedia’s generative AI thesis identifies hyper-creation as a core benefit of the technology.
Levine was talking about AI that already is taking over more of Meta’s ad decisions. AI also is powering Meta’s recommendations for content to serve users on Facebook and Instagram, including what Reels videos Yakov Livshits to serve. Meta has ad products like Advantage+, which are AI-enabled campaigns that look for the best audiences. In February, Zuckerberg announced a new team focusing on AI tools under CPO Chris Cox.
AI Sandbox is a completely generative AI-based tool tailored for advertisers and content creators. This tool strengthens how brands interact and engage with their audience on social media platforms. Experts now predict that this technology will disrupt every industry, impacting the products and services we consume, as well as the way we work.
There are also plans for AI stickers in Messenger, which could be generated from a text prompt. Another project, yet to enter internal testing, would enable users to type a prompt for how they want to edit a photo they plan to post on Instagram Stories. The announcement aligns with Zuckerberg’s comments during Meta’s Q1 earnings, during which he mentioned exploring how to implement new AI technologies in products that reach billions of users worldwide. “There are many exciting use cases for generative speech models, but because of the potential risks of misuse, we are not making the Voicebox model or code publicly available at this time,” the company said in a research post. “While we believe it is important to be open with the AI community and to share our research to advance the state of the art in AI, it’s also necessary to strike the right balance between openness with responsibility.”
