SUMMARY

Mike Schroepfer, Meta’s first Senior Fellow and Former CTO, has been a driving force behind transformative technologies, from his time leading groundbreaking work in computer vision, natural language processing, and the metaverse to his focus today on combating climate change with technology. Schroepfer will sit down with Scale Founder and CEO Alexandr Wang to share lessons from Facebook’s transition from being web-focused to becoming mobile-focused and, ultimately, an AI-centric company. He will explain the developer pain that motivated an industry-standard framework like React Native, as well as the motivations behind keeping PyTorch as a community-focused tool, built for researchers.

He will discuss large language models and how more carefully curated, differentiated, and high-quality data will drive significant advancements in capabilities in the near term. He will also cover the future of augmented and virtual reality, including real-time machine translation with closed-captioning, contextual recognition of real-world objects to create more helpful applications, and more efficient hardware with native AI.
