We’re committed to advancing the field of machine intelligence and developing technologies that give people better ways to communicate. In the long term, we seek to understand intelligence and make intelligent machines. How will we accomplish all this? By building the best AI lab in the world.
Research at the lab covers the full spectrum of topics related to AI, and to deriving knowledge from data: theory, algorithms, applications, software infrastructure and hardware infrastructure.
Our long-term objectives of understanding intelligence and building intelligent machines are bold and ambitious. But making significant progress towards AI can't be done in isolation, and will require the full engagement of the international research community. Everyone at Facebook strongly believes that scientific and technological progress comes from open interactions within the research community. In that spirit, Facebook AI researchers are expected to contribute to the research community through publications, open source software, participation in technical conferences and workshops, and through collaborations with colleagues in academia.
