Link: Meta and Reasonable Doubt

I have been arguing for a couple of years that generative AI is going to be critical to making the Metaverse a compelling place to be, primarily in the context of VR; you can make a similar case for AR, particularly in terms of talking to your assistant. It’s interesting that Zuckerberg is making a similar argument, but backwards: instead of talking about AI costing money that accrues to the hardware division, he is talking about hardware costing money that accrues to the AI division. Regardless, the broader point about AI and the metaverse being complements seems right to me, and in the long run the metaverse should be the internal Meta AI customer that serves a similar function as Microsoft or Google’s cloud customers in terms of necessitating and monetizing huge amounts of capacity. #
