Meta Develops New AI System As Powerful As Most Advanced OpenAI Model: Report

Meta Platforms is working on a new artificial intelligence system that will be as powerful as OpenAI’s most advanced model, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The Facebook parent company aims to complete its new AI model next year, the Journal said, adding that it will be many times more powerful than its commercial version, called Llama 2.

Llama 2 is Meta’s open source AI language model, launched in July and distributed by Microsoft’s Cloud Azure Services to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard.

The planned system, the details of which could change, would help other companies develop services that produce sophisticated text, analysis and other output, the newspaper reported.

Meta expects to begin training the new AI system, known as a large language model, in early 2024, the report added.

Meta did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

Since the launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT late last year, businesses and enterprises have been flocking to the emerging generative AI market to take advantage of newer features and refine business processes.

Bloomberg News reported in July that Apple was working on AI offerings similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard, adding that the company had developed its own framework called Ajax for building large language models, as well as a chatbot test, which some engineers call “Apple GPT”.

In August, Meta released an AI model capable of translating and transcribing speech in dozens of languages, a potential building block for tools that enable real-time communication across language boundaries.

The company said in a blog post that its SeamlessM4T model can support text-to-speech translations in nearly 100 languages ​​as well as full speech-to-speech translation for 35 languages, combining technology previously only available in separate models.
