After Microsoft’s Cortana and Apple’s Siri, it’s now time for Facebook to announce its own and all new virtual personal assistant, Facebook M. Like Cortana and Siri, M is also powered by an artificial intelligence and will actually work like a mobile personal assistant. The software behind the assistant is designed in a special way, so that M can answer you according to the interaction you are having with it — you can ask M anything and it will communicate with you like you are holding a conversation with a real person.
M can make your work schedule and create alarms, make phone calls and send texts. Indeed M can organize a perfect candle light dinner for you or if you are feeling hungry and looking for a restaurant. Above all, it can book tickets for you or can purchase items and according to David Marcus, VP of Messaging Products in Facebook, M will achieve the crown of best AI–based service when it finally debuts
M is still in an experimental mode but it is believed that a beta version will be released very soon.
