Meta joins Google, Microsoft in integrating AI into Facebook, Instagram



Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently announced plans to incorporate generative artificial intelligence (AI) into popular platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger.

Generative AI allows users to create various content using AI algorithms, and it has gained popularity with apps such as Dall-E, ChatGPT, and Midjourney. Several major tech companies, including Google and Microsoft, have already integrated generative AI into their products.

During an all-hands meeting with employees, Zuckerberg shared Meta’s intention to implement AI text, image, and video generators into Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger. The move comes as Meta focuses on metaverse technology and aims to revolutionise user experiences.

Examples of how this technology could be integrated into the platforms were showcased during the meeting. For instance, users may have the ability to modify photos with text prompts before sharing them on Instagram. In addition, AI-powered chatbots with different personalities and capabilities could be added to Messenger and WhatsApp to provide diverse assistance.

Zuckerberg acknowledged the significant advancements in generative AI over the past year, expressing enthusiasm about incorporating this technology into all of Meta’s products. The specific timeline for these features to be implemented remains unknown.

During the meeting, Meta executives also discussed their efforts to incorporate generative AI models into the metaverse, which involves creating immersive virtual worlds. The company plans to provide employees with access to internal generative AI tools for prototyping and is hosting a hackathon to encourage AI project development.

Meta remains committed to contributing to the open-source AI research community. However, the meeting did not address concerns raised by Senators Richard Blumenthal and Josh Hawley regarding the potential misuse of Meta’s LLaMA language model.

In addition to this AI-focused announcement, Meta previously informed employees about new office policies, requiring them to work in the office three days a week starting in September. This change aligns with similar adjustments made by other tech giants such as Amazon and Google.

Overall, Meta’s incorporation of generative AI into its flagship products marks a significant step forward in enhancing user experiences across Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger. The company aims to leverage the latest advancements in AI technology to offer innovative features and drive the evolution of the metaverse.

Users of WhatsApp will soon be able to lock chats on connected devices.




Additionally, linked devices will now have access to the conversation lock feature. Users of WhatsApp will also soon have the option to tag their contacts in status updates.

Notably, WhatsApp users can link their devices to log in to the same account on different devices. However, several functions, such as conversation locks and status updates, are not accessible on the secondary devices.

Even if they are locked on the main conversations, anybody can still access your private chats on a connected device. WhatsApp is currently working on adding Chat Lock capability to connected devices in order to address this.

The chat lock feature on WhatsApp will soon be available on connected devices.

Prior to this, it was claimed that WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, was developing new personalisation options for an iOS beta.

According to WABetaInfo, an update tracker portal for the instant messaging network, WhatsApp for iOS users will soon get the option to modify both the conversation bubble’s colour and the app’s primary colour scheme.

A feature that let beta testers choose the primary colour scheme of the WhatsApp iOS app from a selection of five colours was first tested back in January.

The instant messaging app is testing a feature that lets users change the colour of chat bubbles within conversations, though, in a new beta edition.

Moon train operations are planned by NASA.




The goal is to construct the first lunar train system, which will enable safe, independent, and effective cargo transportation on the moon, according to robotics specialist Ethan Schaler of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

He went on, “The day-to-day functioning of a sustainable lunar base in the 2030s will depend heavily on a robust, long-lasting robotic transport system.”

The Flexible Levitation on a Track, or FLOAT, is the name of the proposed lunar rail system. According to NASA, the establishment of a railway system on the moon is “critical to the daily operations.”

According to the space agency, the primary objective of FLOAT is to offer transportation services in regions of the moon where astronauts are engaged in activities. To do this, cargoes of lunar soil and other materials will need to be transported to various regions of the moon.

Each robot will be able to transport cargo of various sizes and shapes at a pace of roughly 1 mph (1.61 km/h), according to Dr. Schaler.

Notably, NASA also declared new initiatives last month to create and test new vehicle models intended for moon exploration.

Pakistan’s lunar mission ‘ICUBE-Q’ reaches the moon orbit.




Pakistan’s lunar mission (ICUBE-Q) entered orbit around the moon on Wednesday.

Pakistan’s historic lunar mission (ICUBE-Q) launched from Hainan, China, on Friday aboard China’s Chang’E6 spacecraft.

According to the IST, the satellite ICUBE-Q was planned and developed in partnership with China’s Shanghai University SJTU and Pakistan’s national space agency SUPARCO.

The ICUBE-Q orbiter is equipped with two optical cameras to image the lunar surface. ICUBE-Q has now been integrated into the Chang’e6 mission after successfully qualifying and testing it.

Chang’e6 is the sixth lunar exploration mission launched by China.

The launch event was streamed live on the IST website and social media platforms. Chang’6, China’s Lunar Mission, will land on the Moon’s far side to collect surface samples before returning to Earth for further research.
