When OpenAI introduced ChatGPT in 2022, conversations on AI and how it affects people as a whole took a new turn. Furthermore, major giants like Google, Microsoft, and even Meta started releasing their own AI chatbots. Recently, Meta joined the AI chatbot competition and made its virtual assistant, Meta AI, available to a select group of users. Like many others, the corporation has been actively working toward AI research, and Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO, has never held back when it comes to publicly declaring his interest in the technology. Meta has now established a council to provide it with advice on AI-related issues. The business made the same announcement on its website.

The CEO of Stripe Inc. and co-founder Patrick Collison, former GitHub CEO Nat Friedman, CEO of Shopify Inc. Tobi Lütke, and investor and former Microsoft executive Charlie Songhurst makup Meta's new advisory council, called the Meta Advisory Group. Remarkably, a Meta representative confirmed to Bloomberg that none of these officials will be compensated for their activities.

In an internal memo to Meta staff that Bloomberg seen, Zuckerberg acknowledged his respect for the advisory group. "I've come to deeply respect this group of people and their achievements in their respective areas, and I'm grateful that they're willing to share their perspectives with Meta at such an important time as we take on new opportunities with AI and the metaverse," stated the author.

The Meta Advisory Group will operate differently from Meta's current board of directors, which consists of eleven members. The advisory group members are chosen by the company and have no fiduciary duties, in contrast to the board members who are chosen by the shareholders and have a duty to the firm. Because of this distinction, the group is free from the formal responsibilities of board membership to concentrate only on offering strategic insights and suggestions.

According to a Meta representative, "This advisory group is tasked with offering insights and recommendations on technological advancements, innovation, and strategic growth opportunities." This statement clarifies the advisory committee's function.

This advisory group's establishment coincides with a critical juncture in Meta's efforts to fortify its position in AI and broaden its reach across the metaverse. By combining the knowledge and experience of Collison, Friedman, Lütke, and Songhurst, Meta hopes to better traverse the difficult worlds of technology innovation and strategic expansion.

Companies like Meta understand how important it is to have skilled advisers to help them as AI continues to improve and the metaverse idea takes hold. By putting up this advisory council, Meta is demonstrating its dedication to innovation and putting itself in a position to make wise judgments that might influence the direction of technology.
