Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Meta has unveiled several ambitious artificial intelligence projects, describing AI as “the key to unlocking the Metaverse”.

Using the AI feature Builder Bot, in a live-streamed demonstration, he created a basic virtual world including an island, trees and a beach.

Also, he announced a plan to build a universal speech translator.

“The ability to communicate with anyone in any language is a superpower that was dreamt of forever,” he said.

Builder Bot was part of Meta’s CAIRaoke project to improve artificial intelligence assistants and allow “Artificial intelligence to see the world from our experience” as people entered virtual reality via headsets or glasses, he said.

And he promised the artificial intelligence systems driving Meta’s virtual worlds would preserve privacy and be transparent and responsible.

Facebook has been investing in artificial intelligence for the past 10 years and has one of the world’s leading experts, Yann LeCun as its head of AI.

In January, it announced that it had built a new AI supercomputer that it aims to be the fastest in the world when completed in mid-2022.

Facebook changed its corporate name to Meta in October, following revelations from whistleblower Frances Haugen.

At the time, Mr Zuckerberg talked of a wide-ranging Metaverse accessible via VR headsets, such as the Meta Quest, formerly Oculus where people could work, play and chat.

And Meta plans to hire 10,000 people in Europe to help build it.

There has been much hype of its potential.

But critics have asked whether big corporations should be allowed to dominate the creation of such worlds and how safe users would be.
