Meta Is Getting More Transparent About How It Uses AI to Organize Your Feeds
Meta announced that it will be more open about how it uses AI to affect your experience on its platforms.
Meta empowers users to control their experiences as part of its transparency commitment. To achieve this, they are releasing 22 "system cards" that explain how AI algorithms influence content recommendations on Instagram's Explore page and account suggestions. Furthermore, Meta is expanding the accessibility of information through an expanded version of the "Why am I seeing this?" feature, which will now cover a broader range of content types. With these initiatives, Meta aims to enhance user understanding and give individuals more agency in shaping their online interactions.

Meta voicebox unveiled as new text-to-speech generative ai model: All Details
Meta announced Voicebox, its advanced artificial intelligence (AI) tool to generate speech from text.
This advanced AI model performs speech generation tasks such as editing, sampling, and stylizing. It can generate audio clips from a two-second sample, edit pre-recorded audio while preserving content and style, and handle functions like noise removal, content editing, style conversion, and diverse sample generation. It can seamlessly modify segments affected by external noise and replace misspoken words without re-recording the entire speech. The Voicebox feature supports speech synthesis in six languages, enabling text readings from the source speech in different languages.

Meta Launches ‘Human-Like’ AI Image Generation Model
Meta has announced a “human-like” artificial intelligence (AI) image generation model, I-JEPA, and has provided components to researchers. The company says the model will be more effective than generative AI models thanks to relying on background knowledge and context, mimicking typical human cognition.
“The idea behind I-JEPA is to predict missing information in an abstract representation more akin to people's general understanding. Compared to generative methods that predict in pixel/token space, I-JEPA uses abstract prediction targets for which unnecessary pixel-level details are potentially eliminated, thereby leading the model to learn more semantic features,” explains Meta.
