Facebook’s Investments in Artificial Intelligence
In a keynote on Wednesday, Facebook CTO Mike Schroepfer said that A.I. on Facebook makes 6 million predictions per second. More than 25% of the company’s engineers have used A.I. to improve a system on the network.
“I predict a world where notifications are always relevant,” Beltzner said. “Today, a lot of people complain that their phone buzzes and they don’t know if it’s important enough to bother taking their phone out of their pocket. It will know the difference between a kid posting a picture of their pet compared to a friend you haven’t seen in 10 years at a coffee shop down the road where you could meet him in 10 minutes.”
