Depending on who you ask, artificial intelligence is either slated to create a utopia or a dystopia, but in both cases the technology will irreversibly change society, and Facebook AI is a new set of tools that should hasten that process. The open source toolkit gives developers around the world access to the same elite artificial intelligence and deep learning systems that Facebook's own developers use, and there's no reason to panic about that.

Facebook believes that some of the best ideas surrounding artificial intelligence are currently being circulated by researchers and developers who don't work at the company. Rather than having those ideas remain theoretical, Facebook AI gives them the chance to take their AI work from research to production far more quickly than they could on their own.
