Mark Zuckerberg says Meta wants to ‘bring AI agents to billions of people’

Zuckerberg provided the most thorough preview to date during the company's earnings call for the first quarter of this year, when it reported $28.6 billion in revenue and a record 2 billion daily users of the Facebook app, beating Wall Street's expectations, despite being evasive about how precisely Meta will add generative AI to its apps. The quarter's profit for Meta was $5.7 billion, a 24 percent drop from the same period the previous year.

“We’re exploring chat experiences in WhatsApp and Messenger, visual creation tools for posts in Facebook and Instagram and ads, and over time video and multi-modal experiences as well,” Zuckerberg said on the earnings call. “I expect that these tools will be valuable for everyone from regular people to creators to businesses. For example, I expect that a lot of interest in AI agents for business messaging and customer support will come once we nail that experience. Over time, this will extend to our work on the metaverse, too, where people will much more easily be able to create avatars, objects, worlds, and code to tie all of them together.”

Because to the corporate rebranding's distraction and Zuckerberg's attention on the metaverse, Meta originally put off developing the infrastructure required to support these kinds of AI capabilities, which caused it to recently spend billions of dollars remodeling its data centers. Today, Zuckerberg hinted that generative AI products would be available soon and said that "we are no longer behind in building our AI infrastructure."

Although Meta offered the LLaMA AI language model to academics earlier this year, it has not yet introduced anything that is comparable to ChatGPT. That doesn't seem to be the case for very long. Today, Zuckerberg declared that generative AI "literally going to touch every single one of our products" and made a suggestion about how the innovation could help WhatsApp's fledgling customer care operation. “Once you light up the ability for tens of millions of AI agents acting on their behalf, you’ll have way more businesses that can afford to have people engaging in chat,” he said.

He claimed the "narrative that has developed that Meta is moving away from the metaverse" is "not accurate," as shown by the upcoming release of the new Quest VR headset. A $4 billion net loss was announced by Meta's Reality Labs subsidiary in the most recent quarter, and the corporation stated that it anticipates "operating losses to increase year over year in 2023."
