Meta, the parent company of Facebook, is reportedly introducing an in-house artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot called 'Metamate' to its employees. According to The Verge, This new chatbot is specifically trained on internal data and aims to assist employees with tasks such as meeting summarization, code writing, and feature debugging. 

Currently, the company is in the process of rolling out Metamate to a small group of employees. In exploring options to power the chatbot, Meta engaged in discussions with technology giants Microsoft and OpenAI. However, the company ultimately opted to develop an in-house model for this purpose.
