“We knew it was a huge challenge, but it’s even bigger than I thought,” says Lebrun.
“The learning rate, the growth of the automation—we’ve seen that it would be slower than we hoped.” M’s story is a reminder of how far artificial intelligence has come in recent years—and how far it has to go.
(Facebook declined to say how many of those workers it has, or to make M available to try.) That design is too expensive to scale to the 1.2 billion people who use Facebook Messenger, so Facebook offered M to a few thousand users in 2015 as a kind of semi-public R&D project.
Entwining human workers and algorithms was intended to reveal how people would react to an omniscient virtual assistant, and to provide data that would let the algorithms learn to take over the work of their human “trainers.” “Everybody in this field is dreaming of creating the assistant that will finally be very, very, very smart,” says Alex Lebrun, who started the project. Now two years down that path, Facebook’s research project can justifiably be called successful.
