Facebook Launches M

> Facebook Launches M, Its Bold Answer to Siri and Cortana

Today, a few hundred Bay Area Facebook users will open their Messenger apps to discover M, a new virtual assistant.

M is a hybrid. It’s a virtual assistant powered by artificial intelligence as well as a band of Facebook employees, dubbed M trainers, who will make sure that every request is answered.

To try the new service, users will tap a small button at the bottom of the Messenger app to send a note to M, the same way they might message anyone on Facebook. M’s software will decode the natural language, ask followup questions in the message thread, and send updates as the task is completed.

And now they’re ending it:

“We knew it was a huge challenge, but it’s even bigger than I thought. The learning rate, the growth of the automation—we’ve seen that it would be slower than we hoped.”

And that my friends, sums up the life of M in 1 thread smile
