MENLO PARK, CA – META Platforms, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, is on a mission to create a new and potent AI model that rivals the capabilities of OpenAI's most advanced model, GPT-4, as the Wall Street Journal reported.

META’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg formed a dedicated team earlier this year to accelerate the development of this generative AI tool. The company expects to kickstart training this new AI model, referred to as a large language model, in early 2024.

This development aims to take META’s AI game to a whole new level and make it a significant player in the world of AI.

The New AI Model

This upcoming AI model is still in the works, but the goal is clear: it will be several times more potent than META’s recent release, Llama 2. This advanced system, currently under development, aims to help other companies build sophisticated text, analysis, and other AI-driven services that mimic human-like expressions.

Unlike some competitors, META plans to make this AI model open-source, meaning it will be freely available for other companies to build AI-powered tools. This approach, advocated by Zuckerberg, offers benefits such as lower costs and adaptability.

To create such a potent AI, META is investing in data centers and acquiring advanced Nvidia chips for training. While META previously collaborated with Microsoft to launch Llama 2 on Azure, it plans to train this new model on its own infrastructure.

Legal Problems

However, there are concerns about the potential downsides of such a powerful open-source model. Legal specialists warn of increased risks associated with copyright-protected information and the possible misuse of the AI's strength to generate and spread disinformation. META’s legal team is actively reviewing these concerns.
