Zuckerberg Shares New Tech For Realistic Avatars

Using AI to more accurately map limbs for more realistic avatars

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is currently developing technology for creating realistic metaverse avatars. Zuckerberg claims that Meta has built an artificial intelligence platform called MyoSuite, that creates more accurate simulations of humans. MyoSuite can mimic small and detailed movements.

“Meta AI team developed a new AI platform called MyoSuite that builds realistic musculoskeletal simulations that run up to 4,000x faster than state of the art,” said Zuckerberg.

“We can train these models to perform complex movements like twirling a pen or rotating a key.” Meta studies how the musculoskeletal system works in humans to create these complex movements. The company feels that studying how muscles, bones and joints interact is crucial to developing more realistic avatars.

Meta Projects

Zuckerberg teased Meta’s in-progress AI projects via live stream earlier this year, including the CAIRaoke project, which will improve AI assistants. Additionally, Meta is working on a supercomputer, the AI Research SuperCluster, which it claims will be the fastest supercomputer in the world when completed.

According to Zuckerberg, the MyoSuite could aid in developing more realistic avatars for the metaverse and expedite prosthetic development and physical rehab. Meta is making their new tech open-source, meaning developers can freely access it.

“We’re going to open source these models so researchers can use them to advance the field further.” The metaverse pioneer hopes developers will use the open-source models to accelerate the process of creating hyper-realistic avatars for the metaverse.

Meta’s Many Scandals

Offering this technology to developers free of charge will net the social media mogul some good press, which Meta sorely needs. Washington DC’s attorney general is suing Mark Zuckerberg for Meta’s involvement in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which took place during the 2016 US presidential election. In addition, Meta shareholders have been questioning Mark Zuckerberg’s leadership. Meta has also had scandals revolving around its employees. Former Head of Global Community Development for Meta, Jeren A. Miles, left the company after being caught in an underage sex sting.
