Meta has joined the growing list of companies trying to create general artificial intelligence (AGI). For this purpose, the company is reorganizing its AI development teams, reports Engadget.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, has recently been paying more and more attention to artificial intelligence. According to him, the announced changes will help the company speed up its own research and ultimately improve the meta-universe.

Currently, Meta has two teams engaged in AI research. One of them is Fundamental AI Research (FAIR), which was created in 2013. The second team focuses on generative AI experiences for users of its applications. The company intends to expand both teams and bring their work closer together.

In a video on the Threads platform, Mark Zuckerberg said that the upcoming changes “will support our long-term goals of making the common intelligence responsibly openly available, accessible, and useful to everyone in our everyday lives.”

According to Meta’s CEO, the company is preparing the necessary infrastructure for development.

“At the end of this year, we will have ~350 thousand NVIDIA H100s, and about 600 thousand H100 compute equivalents in total if you include other GPUs,” he said.

Mark Zuckerberg also made it clear that he does not plan to abandon the meta-universe, which, according to him, will also benefit from the development of AI.

Earlier, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman announced that he was working on AGI. For example, after the story of his dismissal and return to the company, he wrote a letter to employees in which he stated that he was waiting for the “completion of the work on the creation” of AGI.

However, Microsoft President Brad Smith is convinced that AGI will not be created in the near future. In his opinion, the technology may appear in a decade.
