Facebook’s Virtual Assistant M Is Dead. So Are Chatbots

Facebook is shutting down M, the personal assistant service.
Facebook’s goal with M was to develop artificial-intelligence technology that could automate almost all of M’s tasks. But despite Facebook’s vast engineering resources, M fell short: One source familiar with the program estimates M never surpassed 30 percent automation.
Last spring, M’s leaders admitted the problems they were trying to solve were more difficult than they’d initially realized.

do you think other bot startups will survive ?
