Meta has been designing prototypes for AI-powered chatbots that can have human-like discussions with its users

Meta Platforms plans to launch a range of AI-powered chatbots that exhibit different personalities as soon as September.

According to a report, citing people with knowledge of the plans, the company, which attempts to boost its engagement with its social media platforms, has been designing prototypes for AI-powered chatbots that can have human-like discussions with its users.

The report added that the Menlo Park, California-based social media giant is even exploring an AI-powered chatbot that speaks like Abraham Lincoln and another that advises on travel options in the style of a surfer.

These AI-powered chatbots will provide a new search function as well as offer recommendations.

After its new text-based app, Threads, lost more than half of its users in the weeks following its launch on July 5, Meta executives are focusing on boosting retention.

Forecasting third-quarter revenue above market expectations, the Facebook parent reported a strong rise in advertising revenue in its earnings last week.

Buoyed by hype around emerging AI technology and an austerity drive in which it has shed around 21,000 employees since last fall, the company has been climbing back from a bruising 2022.

To be distributed by Microsoft through its Azure cloud service and run on the Windows operating system, Meta launched a new version of its open-source artificial intelligence model in July called Llama 2 for commercial use.

As per media reports, in July, Apple was working on AI offerings similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard and has built its own framework, known as ‘Ajax’, to create large language models. It is also testing a chatbot that some engineers call ‘Apple GPT’.
