Facebook has announced M, a digital personal assistant that lives within the search giant's Messenger app.
"Unlike other AI-based services in the market, M can actually complete tasks on your behalf," Facebook VP David Marcus said in a Facebook post today.
M will be able to answer your questions, but also complete tasks like ordering things online, booking restaurant reservations or even having gifts sent to family or friends.
A supervised M
Interestingly, M will also have a more human component to it than the other AI-assistants currently available as well.
"It's powered by artificial intelligence that's trained and supervised by people," Marcus said.
Currently though, M is only beginning its testing phase. We're keen to see how it will stack up against its better established competitors, and will be updating as we hear more.
