- Facebook creating its own AI chips.
- Facebook AI chip could help power an intelligent digital assistant.
- It could also help in content moderation.
Facebook’s AI scientists are working on a new kind of chip which is aimed at powering an Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant-like digital assistant. The AI chip is also being designed to help Facebook’s human content moderators sift through and regulate videos and posts on the platform. The disclosure was made by Facebook’s Chief AI Scientist Yann LeCun, in an interview with Financial Times. LeCun, who is known for his work in machine learning, computer vision and computational neuroscience, told FT that Facebook’s AI chip will have enough common sense to be able to talk to any human being and hold a conversation on any subject.
