(Reuters) – Meta Platforms will disperse members of its Responsible AI team to other groups within the company, where they will continue to work to prevent harm from artificial intelligence, the company said on Saturday.
A spokesperson for Meta, which owns Facebook, said in an email that the company intends to bring its personnel closer to the development of core products and technologies.
Most members of the Responsible AI team will transition to generative AI “and continue to support relevant cross-Meta efforts in the development and deployment of responsible AI,” the statement said.
Some members are moving to AI infrastructure.
“We continue to prioritize and invest in safe and responsible AI development, and these changes allow us to better scale to meet our future needs,” the spokesperson said.
Tieto was the first to report on the transfer.
In October, the social media giant began rolling out generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools that can create content such as image backgrounds and variations of written text for all advertisers.
Meta’s portfolio of AI products includes its language model “Llama 2” and an AI chatbot called Meta AI that can generate text responses and photo-realistic images.
