Facebook announces dismissal of its CTO


Facebook chief technology officer Mike Schroepfer will step down in 2022. It was reported by Bloomberg on 23 September, citing an internal company document authored by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Mike Schroepfer's dismissal will be one of the most significant departures at the company in the past few years. According to preliminary information, Mike Schroepfer's position will be taken over by Facebook's current vice president of augmented and virtual reality, Andrew Bosworth.

Schroepfer joined the company in 2008 and took over as Facebook's CTO in 2013. He was involved in the creation of artificial intelligence technologies and oversaw their organisation.

It has been noted that Facebook has recently come under pressure to use artificial intelligence systems to control the distribution of information, removing offensive and banned content.
