Facebook Launches “M”: An AI Tool in Messenger

Posted on: Wednesday, April 12, 2017

After approximately two years in Beta testing, M Suggestions on Facebook has launched in the United States. Facebook users are now able to receive suggestions and shortcuts from the artificial intelligence assistant available in Facebook Messenger.

Suggestions from M work through messenger, as it intervenes within ongoing conversations to provide recommendations and shortcuts, thus highlighting all of the features within Messenger. For example, if a friend states over Messenger that you owe them amount of money, M will suggest utilizing Facebook’s payment feature. Additionally, if you and a friend are planning a get together, M will assist in planning and providing reminders. M will also suggest sharing location when necessary, ride sharing options, GIF replacements and timed reminders, just to name a few.

Facebook’s new time-saving feature works through AI machine learning techniques in hopes of making Facebook Messenger a more common means of communication. M also encourages users to take advantage of Messenger’s hidden features that aren’t necessarily known by every Facebook user.

Despite the fact that M has only been launched to iOS and Android users in the United States, users in other countries should be expecting to see this feature coming to their Facebook Messenger eventually, as Facebook stated.

Therefore, the photographs can be altered, modified and used however one wishes to do so.  The artists of specific pictures are featured, so the user can mention and give credit to the owner if they desire to.

Furthermore, the photos featured on the website are divided into three categories to make image searching more efficient. The three categories specified are; New Photos, Popular Collections and Business Ideas.  The Popular Collection features specific categories, such as fitness, food and yoga.

Adobe Integrates Cloud Services into One Platform

Posted on: Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Adobe has announced the launch of their “Experience Cloud” that will integrate all of Adobe’s cloud services into one platform.  The new cloud will give users the opportunity to combine all of their marketing, analytical and content tools into one business solution; therefore, enhancing productivity. Users will not only be be granted access to advanced information regarding their business, but they will have the ability to perform marketing tasks, such as building campaigns and managing advertising efforts.

Adobe Experience Cloud combines their previously existing clouds, including document, content, marketing and analytical clouds, as well as the new addition of an advertising cloud. Through the integrated platform, users have access to client information, deep information and the opportunity to connect with a vast amount of partners and developers.

This transition into becoming a more customer experience based company, may allow Adobe to compete with other user-oriented software programs, such as Oracle. As customer experience has become one of the business success drivers, it is extremely important for software program companies to get on board to remain competitive, so it is no wonder Adobe is doing so.
