In order to make our Facebook experience much better, Facebook has announced the opening of an extra Facebook AI Research (FAIR) centre in Paris, France. It will be an addition to the existing FAIR centers in Menlo Park and New York, Facebook said in its blog.
The aim of the expansion of the project is to increase the amount of efficiency with which the organization receives information about the apps and services it provides to users all over the world. Facebook also believes France has some of the best researchers in the world. How do you feel?
The statement read that Facebook has a joint working agreement with the INRIA, which is a leading research institute in Paris. This collaboration will opens up new study opportunities for talented research professionals, PhD students, and postdoctoral researchers.
Facebook also added that ‘We believe this open model ultimately spurs more innovation, encourages collaboration and mutual review, and helps us all move faster. Like the existing FAIR teams in Menlo Park and New York, the Paris team will work on ambitious long-term research projects in image recognition, natural language processing, speech recognition, and the kinds of physical and logical infrastructure required to run these AI systems. It’s our hope that this research will ultimately help us make services like News Feed, photos and search even better and enable an entirely new set of ways to connect and share’.
AI is artificial intelligence and though we may see it many movies for now, as it is still only in its early stages of development to be put to practical use, we expect to see more of its application in the real world.

Facebook’s AI Research is all about researching and finding better ways to make intelligent machines that communicate flawlessly with their environments. This research can only be done by opening up to the word for input from various qualified researchers.
Researchers will have to make their contributions to this through publications, participation in technical conferences and workshops, open source software and through interactions with colleagues.
The age of robotics is coming…
