Meta develops AI to rival OpenAI (1)

CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES – Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, is developing a new artificial intelligence (AI) system aimed at rivaling OpenAI’s most advanced model, GPT-4.

The upcoming AI model is designed to help other companies build services that generate sophisticated text, analysis, and other outputs, and is intended to be several times more powerful than its recently released Llama 2 model.

Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, formed a group earlier this year to accelerate the development of generative AI tools capable of producing human-like expressions. The company is currently building the necessary data centers and acquiring more H100s, the most advanced Nvidia chips used for AI training and plans to start training the new AI system, known as a large language model, in early 2024.

Zuckerberg is pushing for the new model to be open-sourced, making it freely available for companies to build AI-powered tools, but there also are potential downsides to an open-source model of the power Meta aspires to, say some legal specialists. 

“You can’t easily predict what the system would do or its vulnerabilities—what some open source AI systems offer is a limited degree of transparency, reusability and extensibility,” said Sarah West, a former adviser to the Federal Trade Commission who is now managing director of the AI Now Institute.

The new AI model under development may not close the gap with Meta’s competitors. Meta hopes it will be roughly as capable as OpenAI’s GPT-4, launched in March.

The new model is also expected to debut after the anticipated release of Gemini, an advanced large language model being built by Google.
