Looks like the Internet is going to be more interesting. Recently, Meta rolled out new AI updates for its apps. That includes WhatsApp, Instagram and even Facebook Messenger. That said, what should you know about it?
According to Meta, you can create customized stickers for your chats and stories. You can also generate images via the prompt “/imagine”. If you are familiar with Midjourney or OpenAI’s DALL-E, this feature works just the same. Ahmad Al-Dahle, Meta’s VP of generative AI said:
“It is a custom-made large language model that is based on a lot of the core principles behind Llama 2,”
The AI-Stickers feature is made possible via the Llama 2 tech and Meta’s foundational model for image generation called Emu. This AI tool can help you create multiple unique, high-quality stickers from a text prompt in seconds. Notably, the AI-Stickers update will roll out to select English users next month.
Moreover, Meta also hinted at two new features for Instagram - Restyle and Backdrop. Thanks to Emu, you can apply your visual styles to the image. For instance, you can type prompts like “watercolour”, “collage from magazines and newspapers, torn edges” and so forth to get the visual style you want.
On the other hand, you can change the background of your image through the Backdrop feature. For instance, if you type “place me in front of a waterfall” or “surrounded by flowers”, the AI tool will create an image of the primary subject in the foreground with the background you described.
In addition, Meta also released a new Meta AI assistant across WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger. The company revealed the new AI assistant will be available for Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses and Quest 3. This feature will be powered by Llama 2 and Meta’s latest large language model (LLM) research.
But it does not end there, Meta introduced 28 new AI characters across its apps. You can assume these AI characters are a new lineup of characters. These characters include Dwyane Wade as Victor, MrBeast as Zach, Snoop Dogg as Dungeon Master and many more.
