As tech companies compete to produce more customized artificial intelligence, Meta has announced a series of new chatbots to be used in its Messenger service.
During Meta’s first in-person event since before the pandemic, held in California, the Meta boss, Mr Mark Zuckerberg said that it had been an “amazing year for AI”.
Though Mr Zuckerberg said The chatbots are still a work in progress with “limitations”, it was disclosed that the chatbots will have “personality” and specialise in certain subjects, while the main chatbot “Meta AI” can be used in messaging.
According to Meta, NFL star Tom Brady will play an AI character called ‘Bru’, “a wisecracking sports debater” and YouTube star MrBeast will play ‘Zach’, a big brother “who will roast you”.
Report says many celebrities have also signed up to lend their personalities to different types of chatbots, including Snoop Dogg and Kendall Jenner.
The chatbots will be rolled out in the coming days and only in the US initially.
