Yang Likun said in Paris on Friday: "Imagine if someone uses Facebook Live to kill themselves by suicide or killing, you will want to remove this content from the live broadcast service when this happens."
He stated that using traditional computer systems to monitor eachvideo, Live and recorded videos require powerful computer performance and consume a lot of energy. “In the industry, there is a lot of momentum in designing more energy-efficient chips. Many companies are doing this, including Facebook,” he said at the Viva Technology Conference in Paris. “You have already made hardware from Intel, Samsung, and Nvidia. Businessmen have seen this trend, but you are starting to see the downstream companies in the chip area have their own needs,DevelopmentIndependent hardware. ”
Bloomberg reported last month that Facebook is forming a team to design autonomous semiconductors according to the recruitment announcement and information provided by people familiar with the situation. Facebook and other technology companies are seeking to become self-sufficient in chip supply and reduce their dependence on chip makers such as Intel and Qualcomm.
Yang Likun said that more and more smart machines are starting to be equipped with powerful chips, allowing users to use voice recognition, augmented reality and virtual reality technology to directly process pictures and videos on their devices. He said that this trend will become increasingly popular, prompting more software companies to consider hardware.
"Facebook had previously developed hardware: it has designed its own data center.server, motherboards and communication chips," Yang Likun said. "So for Facebook, the development of chips is not a brand new attempt. ”
Yang Likun said earlier this week that although AI helped Facebook deal with extremist propaganda, fake accounts, and hate speech issues, it is not yet sophisticated enough to deal with many of the most pressing issues facing Facebook. (Compile / Rain)
