Wrapping up its year, Meta AI (@AIatMeta) showcased an impressive array of AI advancements for 2023. This year-end roundup offers a look at the future of AI technologies and their potential impacts on various industries. Here are the top 10 AI research developments shared by Meta AI:
Segment Everything (SAM): Pioneering the creation of the first fundamental image segmentation model, SAM represents a significant leap forward in computer vision capabilities. More info.
DINOv2: This innovative method marks the first of its kind to train computer vision models using self-supervised learning, achieving results that match or exceed industry standards. More info.
Llama 2: The Next Generation of Meta’s Large Open Source Language Model. It should be noted that it is freely available for both research and commercial use, which extends its accessibility. More info.
Emu Video & Emu Edit: These are ground-breaking generative AI research projects focused on high-quality, diffusion-based text-to-video generation and supervised image editing using text-based instructions. More info.
I-JEPA: A self-supervised model of computer vision that learns by predicting the world, aligning with Yann LeCun’s vision of animal- and human-like AI systems learning and reasoning. More info.
Audiobox: This is Meta’s new groundbreaking research model for audio generation, expanding the horizons of AI in the auditory domain. More info.
Brain Decoding: An AI system using MEG for real-time reconstruction of visual perception, achieving unprecedented temporal resolution in decoding visual representations in the brain. More info.
Open Catalyst Demo: This service accelerates materials science research by enabling simulations of the reactivity of catalyst materials faster than existing computational methods. More info.
Seamless communication: A new family of AI translation models that not only preserve expressions but also deliver near-real-time streaming. More info.
ImageBind: The first AI model capable of integrating data from six different modalities simultaneously. This breakthrough brings machines one step closer to human-like multisensory information processing. More info.
The enthusiasm and potential applications of these advances are evident in the responses of social media users. Behrooz Azarkhalili (@b_azarkhalili) called for the deployment in a Twitter thread, while AG Chronos (@realagchronos) expressed excitement, noting the similarities and potential superiority of Meta AI’s capabilities compared to other platforms like Grok, especially in its Instagram integration.
