Mark Zuckerberg: Meta wants to create artificial general intelligence


In a recent interview with The Verge, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, revealed the company’s pursuit of creating artificial general intelligence (AGI), a goal shared by entities such as OpenAI and Google. This focus has led to the restructuring of Meta’s AI teams, with the merger of its responsible AI research team and generative department being a notable change.

When asked to define AGI, Zuckerberg highlighted its broad scope, emphasizing the need for machines to possess reasoning and intuition, enabling them to learn and reason across a wide range of domains at the level of human intelligence or beyond.

Zuckerberg emphasized the significance of talent in AI research, acknowledging the intense competition for top researchers and the substantial financial support directed towards various projects. Additionally, he expressed confidence in Meta’s computing power, noting their preparedness with over 340,000 Nvidia H100 GPUs, attributed to Nvidia’s dominance in AI chips.

Meta’s commitment to “responsible open sourcing” is evident through the development of Llama 3, with the goal of creating leading AI models. Zuckerberg stressed Meta’s ambition to build state-of-the-art and industry-leading AI models.
