Top 10 AI Research Developments of 2023 by Meta AI
In a recap of their year, Meta AI (@AIatMeta) has showcased an impressive array of advancements in the field of artificial intelligence for 2023. This roundup, marking the end of the year, offers a glimpse into the future of AI technologies and their potential impacts on various industries. Here are the top 10 AI research developments shared by Meta AI:
1. Segment Anything (SAM)
A pioneering step in creating the first foundational model for image segmentation, SAM represents a significant leap forward in computer vision capabilities. More Details.
This innovative method marks the first of its kind for training computer vision models using self-supervised learning, achieving results that match or surpass industry benchmarks. More Details.
3. Llama 2
The next generation of Meta’s open-source large language model. Notably, it’s available freely for both research and commercial use, broadening its accessibility. More Details.
4. Emu Video & Emu Edit
These are groundbreaking generative AI research projects focusing on high-quality, diffusion-based text-to-video generation and controlled image editing using text instructions. More Details.
A self-supervised computer vision model that learns by predicting the world, aligning with Yann LeCun’s vision of AI systems learning and reasoning akin to animals and humans. More Details.
This is Meta’s new foundational research model for audio generation, expanding the horizons of AI in the auditory domain. More Details.
7. 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 Details.
8. Open Catalyst Demo
This service accelerates research in material sciences, enabling simulations of catalyst materials’ reactivity faster than existing computational methods. More Details.
9. Seamless Communication
A new family of AI translation models that not only preserve expressions but also deliver near-real-time streaming translations. More Details.
The first AI model capable of integrating data from six different modalities simultaneously. This breakthrough brings machines a step closer to human-like multisensory information processing. More Details.
The enthusiasm and potential applications of these advancements are evident in the responses from social media users. Behrooz Azarkhalili (@b_azarkhalili) requested a thread unroll on Twitter, while A. G. Chronos (@realagchronos) expressed excitement, noting the similarities and potential superiority of Meta AI’s capabilities compared to other platforms like Grok, especially in its integration with Instagram.
