Meta Unveils 'Human-Like' AI for Image Completion

By Rahul Bhagat

Meta Platforms plans to offer researchers access to its new "human-like" AI model, I-JEPA, which excels at analyzing and completing unfinished images.

Unlike other generative AI models, I-JEPA utilizes background knowledge to accurately fill in missing parts of images, avoiding common errors.

Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, actively shares open-sourced AI research from its in-house lab.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes that sharing models encourage innovation, identifies safety issues, and reduces costs.

Meta executives have disregarded concerns from industry peers about the potential risks of the technology.

Meta integrates generative AI capabilities into consumer products, such as ad tools and an Instagram feature that modifies user photos based on text prompts.
