$13.72 billion loss

In 2022. However, the majority of Meta's revenues come from digital advertising. In 2022, the company earned $116.61 million in revenue.

Bosworth stated to Nikkei that he anticipates the company will release some commercial applications using AI in the coming year. This could be a boost for the company's profit-driving advertising business.

He said that companies could use AI to create advertisements by creating multiple images that appeal to different audiences, rather than relying solely on one image.

Bosworth said to Nikkei, however, that Meta could still use AI in its metaverse.

Bosworth stated in the report that "In the future you might just be able to describe the world you wish to create and have large language models generate it for you." It makes content creation easier for more people.

According to the report, the company plans to apply its AI technology eventually to all its services and products including Instagram and Facebook.
