Facebook is Creating Artificial Intelligence Assistant

Facebook is working on bringing a artificial intelligence personal digital assistant “M,” to the Facebook Messenger app.

Facebook executive David Marcus says M is  part human, part robot.

 “It’s powered by artificial intelligence that’s trained and supervised by people,”

What makes M different is the ability to not only retrieve information but to complete purchases or book appointments on your behalf, and some other things as well.

“It can purchase items, get gifts delivered to your loved ones, book restaurants, travel arrangements, appointments, and way more.”

An in-development version of M is already coming out being given to select users. Marcus acknowledged and says that it’s still early days for M, but he is optimistic about its potential as he says in a statement.

“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,” he said.

Should Artificial Intelligence like this be continued?
