Zuckerberg Building AI That Learns Just Like Humans, And He Has All The Resources He Needs To Teach It Human Behavior

The social media giant reportedly wants to train its artificial intelligence to understand the world just like humans do, by feeding it video recordings from augmented reality glasses

Facebook wants to build an artificial intelligence that learns to understand the world like humans—by watching our every move. The tech giant has announced plans to teach AI to ‘understand and interact with the world like we do’ in first person. It hopes to do this by using video and audio from augmented reality (AR) glasses like its new high-tech Ray-Bans.

“AI typically learns from photos and videos captured in third-person, but next-generation AI will need to learn from videos that show the world from the center of action,” the company said.

It went on: “AI that understands the world from this point of view could unlock a new era of immersive experiences.”

For the Ego4D project, Facebook gathered 2,200 hours of first-person video from 700 people going about their daily lives in order to begin training its AI assistants. It says it wants to teach AI to:

  • remember things, so we can ask it ‘what happened when’
  • predict human actions and try to anticipate our needs
  • manipulate hands and objects in order to learn new skills
  • keep a video ‘diary’ of everyday life and recall specific moments
  • learn and understand social interaction

These tasks can’t be performed by any AI system right now, but could play a central role in Facebook’s plans to build the ‘metaverse’; a digital 3D overlay of reality using VR and AR.

It has already began work on this with its Oculus VR headsets, as well as the release of the new Facebook x Ray-Ban smart glasses.
