What I'd do if reborn as Meta CEO?

The roadmap is simple (clickable shortcuts):

1. Research AI Industry & Fine-tune Data

I researched as much as possible from an outside POV with the help of multiple LLMs that scanned the web, Wikipedia, and 2 dozen hand-picked tech, business, and news sites from around the world for all their info/content about Mr. Zuckerberg, Meta, Facebook & Co.

Also for his IMHO biggest competitors and their executives to unveil strengths and weaknesses, their thinking, planning, predict their moves, etc.

This led to 89 pages of extremely condensed and high-quality data in 1 PDF.

2. Research emerging competition & Fine-tune Data

Same as before – but for Elon Musk’s new AI startup and team, which are currently still shrouded in mystery. That’s why I downloaded all their published papers, had AI analyze them, and distill the xAI team’s strengths, weaknesses, probable GTM strategies, etc.

This led to 36 pages of highly condensed and high-quality data in 1 PDF.

3. Benchmark with Studies about AI & Future

I organized some of the best global studies from a variety of different sources, e.g. the newly published 400-page long and € 1.500,- expensive McKinsey book REWIRED on how to win in AI as a company.

I transcribed keynote videos from some of the IMHO smartest people (aside from Mr. Zuckerberg, e.g. business leader Ray Dalio, geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan, etc.

4. Prompt Engineer new Business Ideas with USP

Act as smart, visionary CEO, CCO, CSO, and CTO.

1. Analyse all PDFs.

2. Create 20 new AI product or service ideas for our company Meta. 3. Focus on ideas that are new and ideally not easy to copy by our competitors, e.g. Microsoft, xAI, x aka Twitter, IBM, Anthropic, Alphabet, Google, Deepmind, Stability AI, Hugging Face, and Element AI.

4. Utilise all of Meta’s companies’ assets, data, and possibilities to create synergies for Meta’s new AI products, services and offerings.

5. Sort your 20 new AI product and service ideas by most creative and format your output like this:

<<Idea Number>> <<Idea Name in max. 8 words>>

Concept: <<Explanation of idea without superfluous words in 1 paragraph>>

Reasoning: <<Reason why this idea makes sense in 1 sentence>>

Challenge(s): <<Challenges to overcome to execute in 1 sentence>>

Target(s): <<One or up to 3 Target Group(s) for this idea in 1 sentence>>

Pain-point(s): <<Pain-point(s) this idea solves for above-mentioned Target Groups>>

Market potential: <<Estimate market potentials in $ for 2025, 2030 and 2040>>
