Facebook has announced M, its personal assistant for the Messenger-App, with the ability to manage your life in surprising ways.
M is a personal digital assistant inside of Messenger, capable of completing tasks and finding information on your behalf. It’s powered by artificial intelligence that is trained and supervised by people.
Unlike other AI-based services in the market, M can do things for you while you’re busy doing something else. For example, it can purchase items, have gifts delivered to your loved ones, book restaurants, organize travel and appointments – and way more.
How much data is created on the web every minute? How about every day?
‘A mind boggling amount’ may be an understatement. The Internet is an incredible, gigantic platform that captures three billion users’ data and search results daily.
For example, every minute 4.1 million posts are ‘liked’ on Facebook. Apple users download an average of 51,000 apps every single minute. YouTube users upload 300hrs of video content in that same 60 seconds. Can you even imagine that?
Twitter has become the social media platform favoured by journalists. They use it for research, for distributing or gathering information and for mapping opinions.
And Facebook doesn’t like it.
To fight back, Facebook developed a new research tool – exclusively for journalists – Signal. With Signal, journalists can make Facebook a more vital part of news gathering with the ability to surface relevant trends, photos, videos, and posts on both Facebook and Instagram.
