Meta AI


Since we partnered with the AI community to create the PyTorch framework for AI research six years ago, open collaboration has been essential to its success. With some 2,400 contributors who have built more than 150,000 projects on the framework, PyTorch has become one of the leading platforms for AI research as well as commercial production use. Today, we …

Every year, more than 69 million people around the world suffer traumatic brain injury, which leaves many of them unable to communicate through speech, typing, or gestures. These people’s lives could dramatically improve if researchers developed a technology to decode language directly from noninvasive brain recordings. Today, we’re sharing research that takes a step toward this goal. We’ve …

Today, we’re announcing that Meta AI has built and released BlenderBot 3, the first 175B-parameter, publicly available chatbot complete with model weights, code, datasets, and model cards. We’ve deployed it in a live interactive conversational AI demo here. BlenderBot 3 is capable of searching the internet to chat about virtually any topic, and it’s designed to learn how to improve its skills …

What the research is: Meta AI is sharing new research on using Vision Transformers (ViTs) for object detection. Our approach, ViTDet, outperforms previous alternatives on benchmarks on the Large Vocabulary Instance Segmentation (LVIS) dataset, which was released by Meta AI researchers in 2019 to facilitate research on low-shot object detection. In this task, the model must learn …

Meta is launching a new research project to make progress in assessing and improving our technologies to advance fairness Adapting a well-established privacy-preserving method called secure multiparty computation (SMPC) to safeguard information, we are asking people on Instagram to take a survey in which they can voluntarily share their race or ethnicity. This information is …

Research in cryptography, the science of securing information, must stay ahead of attacks in order to protect everyone’s data. Since current standards for public key cryptography may one day be vulnerable to attacks by large-scale quantum computers, researchers are proposing and testing new post-quantum cryptographic proposals based on hard problems in mathematics. Today, Meta AI …

What the research is: Meta AI is open-sourcing Theseus, a library for an optimization technique called differentiable nonlinear least squares (NLS) that is particularly useful for applications like robotics and computer vision. Built on PyTorch, Theseus enables researchers to easily incorporate expert domain knowledge into modern AI architectures. It does this by expressing that knowledge as …

Creative expression is central to human connection, and using artificial intelligence (AI) to augment human creativity is a powerful use of technology — whether it’s by generating expressive avatars, animating children’s drawings, creating new virtual worlds in the metaverse, or producing stunning digital artwork using just text descriptions. It’s not enough for an AI system to just generate content, …

Meta AI has built a single AI model, NLLB-200, that is the first to translate across 200 different languages with state-of-the-art quality that has been validated through extensive evaluations for each of them. We’ve also created a new evaluation dataset, FLORES-200, and measured NLLB-200’s performance in each language to confirm that the translations are high quality. …

Whether it’s mingling at a party in the metaverse or watching a home movie in your living room while wearing augmented reality (AR) glasses, acoustics play a role in how these moments will be experienced. We are building for mixed reality and virtual reality experiences like these, and we believe AI will be core to …
