Meta’s Metaverse is Getting An AI Makeover

The Meta company has a new strategy to sell the public on its vision.

It is not surprising that Mark Zuckerberg and Meta used much of Connect Conference –  once known solely as a VR conference – to talk about the company’s new generative AI tools. AI will even play a prominent role in the company’s new hardware, the Meta Quest 3 and the Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses.

However, Meta is not giving up on the Metaverse. Zuckerberg has said the two are very much linked and has tried to dispel the notion that Meta’s current focus on AI has supplanted its Metaverse investments. Zuckerberg stated “We’ve been focusing on both AI and the Metaverse for years now, and we will continue to focus on both.”

This year, at Meta’s Connect Conference, he pitched an AI-centric metaverse.

The addition of AI assistants could also make “the Metaverse” a lot more useful. One of the more intriguing features previewed during Connect were Meta AI-powered search capabilities in the Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses. The Google Lens-like feature would enable wearers to “show” things they are seeing through the glasses and ask the AI questions about it, like asking Meta AI to identify a monument or translate text.
