Meta introduces ChatGPT competitor, AI tools amid industry arms race

Meta AI will allow users to search WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram using artificial intelligence

“Meta on Wednesday launched a conversational chatbot that will allow users to search its social media networks using artificial intelligence — an attempt to compete with OpenAI’s popular ChatGPT amid an industry-wide boom in generative AI. Meta said the conversational assistant, Meta AI — which will populate WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram — relies on one of its large language models and a partnership with Microsoft’s search engine Bing. The company is also launching AI-backed photo creation tools and 28 AI-powered chatbots, played by celebrities and cultural icons such as Snoop Dogg, Tom Brady, Kendall Jenner and Naomi Osaka.”
