Meet M, Facebook’s Personal Assistant that Lives Inside Messenger
Facebook Messenger head David Marcus discussed the new service called M:
Today we’re beginning to test a new service called M. M is a personal digital assistant inside of Messenger that completes tasks and finds information on your behalf. It’s powered by artificial intelligence that’s trained and supervised by people.
M is a Digital Assistant with Human Touch
M is a completely different and competitive assistant that can surely replace your Human Assistant in a way because With M, you can buy items, get your gifts delivered, book hotels and restaurants, check appointments and flights and a lot more.
“This is early in the journey to build M into an at-scale service. But it’s an exciting step towards enabling people on Messenger to get things done across a variety of things, so they can get more time to focus on what’s important in their lives.”
This personal assistant is surely getting a competition for Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana and Google’s Google. This is quite sure that Facebook’s M will surely handle your questions in a mannered way because of the massive data you have on your Facebook. This will also make easier to have things in a short span of time. You can easily do the chores with the help of your personal assistant “M”
This rollout is slow and a few hundred users will be seeing M in their Messenger for the time being.
