Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has taken significant strides to enhance its AI services across its platform. The latest move involves upgrading its AI chatbot and integrating it into the search bars of its major apps: Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. This deployment spans multiple countries, including South Africa!

The Key Features of Meta’s AI Chatbot are:

Enhanced Language Model: Meta’s AI chatbot now runs on the powerful Llama 3 language model, enabling more accurate and context-aware responses. Users can engage with the chatbot directly from the search bar within their favourite social media apps.

Web Search Integration: Users can now request web-related results powered by both Google and Bing. Whether you’re looking for information, news, or answers, the chatbot provides relevant search results.

Faster Image Generation: The AI chatbot can generate images more swiftly.  Users can even request animations, or convert images into GIFs, witnessing real-time modifications as they type.

Improved Image Quality: Meta has worked on enhancing the image quality of AI-generated photos. Llama 3 demonstrates improvements in this area, resulting in more realistic and visually appealing images.

Meta AI Everywhere: The chatbot is accessible directly from the search bar, making it convenient for users to seek information. Users can engage with Meta AI in both individual and group chats. You can ask questions related to posts in your Facebook feed.

Mark Zuckerberg boldly stated that Meta AI is possibly the “most intelligent AI assistant that you can freely use.” The company aims to compete with other popular AI services in the market, such as those from OpenAI.
