Facebook has new artificial intelligence tools and celebrity-endorsed digital assistants that CEO Mark Zuckerberg hopes will help jumpstart the metaverse.
Zuckerberg reviewed the artificial intelligence program in addition to the company’s new “Quest 3” virtual reality headset and the latest Ray-Ban smart glasses on Wednesday at the Meta Virtual Reality Developers Conference at its headquarters in Menlo Park, California.
Users of various Facebook chat applications such as WhatsApp and Messenger will soon be able to share digital stickers that can be automatically generated via written commands through chatbots that use artificial intelligence such as GBT Chat.
Zuckerberg also introduced new AI-powered editing tools, which will be used next month in the Meta-owned Instagram app and will allow users to change their photos through commands.
The company’s Emio model powers new AI tools. Zuckerberg described this technology as a sister to the “L Llama” family, which is a language generation program. He said Emu can create images in about 5 seconds.
Users will eventually be able to automatically create photorealistic images similar to the Made Journey AI app found within the Discord messaging service.
Meta has partnered with many celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Mr. Best, and Kendall Jenner to represent digital characters.

For example, users can ask travel-related questions to a digital assistant named Lorena – played by famous actress Padma Lakshmi – who will then provide travel tips.
Zuckerberg said that users will eventually be able to create their own digital assistants, but the company wants to test this ability with selected companies before rolling it out more broadly.
The big plan is for people to interact with these AI-powered digital assistants in the company’s yet-to-be-built metaverse, a digital world that costs the meta trillions of dollars.
Although Zuckerberg is still involved in the metaverse, he talks more about artificial intelligence than he did at previous Connect conferences. He said that the company’s investments in artificial intelligence are linked to building the foundation for the metaverse, as evidenced by the latest Ray-Ban smart glasses developed with Eslor Lexatica.
The new glasses, which will cost $299 when they are available for purchase on October 17, come built with Meta AI software so people can identify landmarks or translate landmarks when looking at different objects.
Zuckerberg believes that “the AI part of these glasses will be just as important,” because AI makes smart glasses more convincing.
