Facebook Launching Digital Personal Assistant

Just what we all need, another digital personal assistant tied to our phones. Not sure how I feel about the name either, it instantly makes me think of Judy Dench.

Last month, the service آ– which was dubbed Moneypenny آ– was described as a concierge service, with "real people" available who can help users accomplish tasks online, like researching/buying products and services, among other as-yet-to-be-determined things. Marcus confirmed to Wired that Facebook’s M will be supported by a team of people آ– known as M Trainers آ– who manage the artificial intelligence and assist in completing tasks.
