Facebook just can’t get enough, just can’t get enough of competing with other tech giants, in a great endeavor to conquer the world and have all the citizens of the planet as social network users, sharing their likes, dislikes, tastes, opinions, feelings, money, memories, fears, dreams and the list can go on with words that make up for a human life. What information could be more important and more threatening than all that builds up a human existence? Well, Facebook wants to be Mr. Know it all, and it lays all the cards and weapons on the table. It offers you everything you may need, in order to give back everything it wants from you. It becomes increasingly appealing and complete, blocking your way to other territories of the web.
In the future, you will most probably be completely tied with the social network, designed to offer the entire batch of services for you to stick to a single page: Facebook.
Siri now has a competitor, under the name of M and it is released by, well, you’ve guessed, Facebook. The world’s largest social network builds a personal assistant feature into its text-like messaging service. M has already rolled out for some users on Wednesday, offering them a way to tap the large territories of knowledge in the company’s databases for useful information.
M, Facebook’s new personal assistant can help users with all sorts of things, from finding the answers to existential questions to finding the closest store where you can buy a bottle of wine.
As officials from the company state, “M can actually complete tasks on your behalf. It can purchase items, get gifts delivered to your loved ones, book restaurants, travel arrangements, appointments and way more”. This basically tells us that we don’t need to use our brains in order to find all the information we need for ourselves, some robot can do all instead of us.
In the past Facebook was into social intelligence. Now they’ve got into the artificial intelligence business and have made some heavy progress in programming artificial intelligence technology to deliver it to users all over the world.
Apple is the most well-known tech giant to use artificial intelligence and it does it at a very popular and widespread level. Now, Facebook has entered the game.
The service could come as paid feature but it probably won’t, as Facebook is in the business of asking for information rather than money, and information is the very money.
