According to The Wall Street Journal, Meta has been purchasing AI training chips and building data centers to create a new, more powerful chatbot that it believes will be as smart as OpenAI’s GPT-4. The corporation reportedly intends to begin training the huge new language model in early 2024, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is apparently pushing to once again make it free for companies to use to create intelligence products. artificial.
According to the Journal, Meta has been purchasing additional Nvidia H100 AI training processors and beefing up its infrastructure so that this time it won’t have to rely on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform to train the new chatbot. The corporation reportedly created a group earlier this year to design the model in order to accelerate the development of AI capabilities that can imitate human expressions.
That goal seems to be a natural extension of Meta’s aforementioned generative AI features. According to a leak from June, an Instagram chatbot with 30 personalities was being tested, which sounds similar to the unannounced AI “personas” the company will reportedly introduce this month.
This year, Meta has apparently had to deal with a high turnover of AI researchers due to computational resources being shared among many LLM projects. It also faces stiff competition in the field of generative AI. OpenAI stated in April that it was not training a GPT-5 and “won’t be doing so for some time,” but Apple has reportedly been investing millions of dollars in developing its own “Ajax” AI model, which it believes will It is more powerful even than GPT. -4. Both Google and Microsoft have increased the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in their productivity tools, and Google intends to use generative AI in Google Assistant. Amazon is also working on generative AI programs across its company, which could result in a chatbot-powered Alexa.
