Meta offers Chatbots with a Personal Touch — Jason Michael Perry

Meta’s showing everyone it’s got some serious AI muscle with genuinely interactive chatbots, all building on Meta’s AI models like Llama and EMU for video editing. Now, the much-anticipated Meta AI characters have arrived, complete with unique personalities, ready for a chit-chat about anything that’s on your mind. 

But hold onto your hats, because here’s the wild part:

“In addition, the company said more of its AI characters will support search powered by Bing and it will begin experimenting with “long-term memory” in several — meaning, the characters will learn and remember your conversation when it’s over.”

We’re stepping out of the ephemeral chat bubble and into a world where recollections create connections. Long-term memory in chatbots? It’s a brave new world of continuity and context, folks.
