Facebook and Instagram will receive two new tools based on artificial intelligence. Meta announced an image editor that works entirely based on text queries, and a video generator that is still quite basic but perfect for social networks.

Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, is actively working on artificial intelligence in order to offer its own alternatives to chatbots, like ChatGPT, or image generators, like Midjourney. However, unlike its rivals, the firm is content with announcements, without making AI available to the general public. At least until now.
After announcing its Emu AI (Expressive Media Universe) dedicated to image generation in September, Meta has just presented two new tools which will be integrated directly into Facebook and Instagram. The first, and most impressive, is called Emu Edit, and will allow you to edit your images before publishing them. The particularity, compared to other similar tools, is that in addition to being integrated into Meta’s social networks, the AI operates entirely from a prompt.
An image editor and animation generator
Describe the changes you want, and the AI takes care of it. There is no need to even select the area to edit. A priori, the tool seems to rely on AI Segment Anything Model (SAM) from Meta announced in April and which allows objects in an image to be identified. Simply ask the AI to change the background, replace an object (e.g. change the liquid in a glass or the glass itself into a golden goblet) or remove it, or even change the facial expression. Unlike other AIs, Emu Edit is designed for precise edits. The example given by Meta is adding text to a cap, which does not otherwise modify the cap.
Meta also announced Emu Video which allows you to generate short animated sequences from a prompt, an improved version of its Make-A-Video. In other words, images generated quite unrealistically like in the first versions of Dall-E or Midjourney, but in the form of animated GIFs lasting a few seconds. Mark Zuckerberg published a demonstration of the capabilities of these two tools on Facebook. At this time Meta has not yet clarified when these features will be available on Facebook and Instagram.
