Facebook has new artificial intelligence tools and celebrity-endorsed digital assistants that CEO Mark Zuckerberg hopes will help jumpstart the metaverse.

Zuckerberg reviewed the artificial intelligence program in addition to the company’s new “Quest 3” virtual reality headset and the latest Ray-Ban smart glasses on Wednesday at the Meta Virtual Reality Developers Conference at its headquarters in Menlo Park, California.

Users of various Facebook chat applications such as WhatsApp and Messenger will soon be able to share digital stickers that can be automatically generated via written commands through chatbots that use artificial intelligence such as GBT Chat.

Zuckerberg also introduced new AI-powered editing tools, which will be used next month in the Meta-owned Instagram app and will allow users to change their photos through commands.

The company’s Emio model powers new AI tools. Zuckerberg described this technology as a sister to the “L Llama” family, which is a language generation program. He said Emu can create images in about 5 seconds.

Users will eventually be able to automatically create photorealistic images similar to the Made Journey AI app found within the Discord messaging service.
