He shared his thoughts on the same through a Facebook post on 27 Feb. Apart from Meta, a lot of other tech companies are also doing a similar thing.
The arrival of OpenAI’s ChatGPT has created intense competition among tech giants, triggering a race of sorts.

ChatGPT Creates a Competitive Race among Tech Giants
The worldwide obsession with ChatGPT has amazed everyone, as users all around the globe have shown their enthusiasm and created works of art, as well as tackled various coding problems with the help of this technology.
As a result, various tech firms have created their own AI-equipped chatbot, potentially setting the stage for a rivalry with Google in terms of an online presence. Both Elon Musk and Tencent have also declared their ambitions in this area. Musk has been reported to have contacted various AI professionals in order to form a research lab dedicated to the development of such chatbots.
Further Aspirations of Meta
In the past year and a half, Meta has gradually shifted its emphasis away from only social media to the space of the metaverse. Despite this change, the company has received unfavorable quarterly outcomes. However, now, Meta seems to have redirected its focus to Artificial Intelligence for maintaining revenue and performance levels.
Meta is aiming for a “year of efficiency” in 2023, leading to a possible interpretation of potential job losses. In a difficult tech market, Meta is desperately hoping to return to a successful course of action.
