Realizing the Potential of AI Today and Creating the Experiences of Tomorrow

Our researchers and technologists work closely with open source communities, academia, and partners to realize the potential of AI today, and create a new class of experiences for tomorrow. Through the power of AI, we will enable a world where people can easily share, create, and connect physically and virtually, with anyone, anywhere.

Jérôme Pesenti

VP of AI, Meta AI

“A commitment to open science and open source in our research ensures we’re creating a metaverse for everyone—where individuals and organizations have access to tools and technologies to realize their own Metaverse vision.”

Angela Fan

Research Scientist, Meta AI

“As we build robots to have access to rich interaction, an important step is giving it new capabilities to better perceive the world, to understand and interact through touch.”

Yann LeCun

VP & Chief AI Scientist, Meta AI

“What excites me about AI systems achieving human intelligence is the amplification of human intelligence. That every human could essentially be more productive, more creative, and spend their time on more fulfilling activities. This is the history of technological evolution.”
