Meta rejects warnings.. A humanoid model that handles images accurately

Meta Platforms announced Tuesday that it will provide researchers with access to a new “humanlike” artificial intelligence model that it said can analyze and complete images with a higher degree of accuracy than existing models. As reported by Reuters.

“completes the missing parts”

The company said the new model (i-JEPA) uses prior knowledge about the world to fill in missing parts of images, rather than just looking at nearby components like other generative AI models.

She also added that this approach includes a kind of human-like thinking supported by the chief scientist of artificial intelligence, Jan Lucan, and helps the technology avoid common errors in images generated by artificial intelligence, such as the appearance of a human hand with extra fingers.

Research lab

Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, is one of the most popular publishers of open source AI research through its own internal research lab.

For his part, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that sharing models developed by Meta researchers can help the company by stimulating innovation, discovering security vulnerabilities, and reducing costs.

“For us, it’s best if the industry standardizes on what we use in terms of core tools, so we can benefit from the improvements that others are making,” he told investors in April.

Dismiss the warnings

While the company’s executives have so far rejected the warnings of others in the sector about the potential risks of this technology, and last month they refrained from signing a statement describing those risks as equal to the risks of epidemics and wars, despite the support of senior executives in OpenAI, DeepMind, Microsoft and Google for that statement.

The godfather of artificial intelligence

Lucan, who is considered one of the “godfathers of artificial intelligence”, also refuses to focus on the potential disadvantages of this technology and instead supports work on safety checks for its systems.

Meta has also begun integrating the features of generative AI models into its consumer products, including advertising tools that can create photo backgrounds and an Instagram product that can edit photos, both of which are based on user searches.
