Yeah, and when they stop laughing at your request as well.

@SachinEE: There is a big "IF" in this. The adaptability of this AI would depend upon its lackeys.

Re: No comparison just yet
Would this come as a downloadable? What if my phone already has Cortana? Would I be able to use this AI over "her"?

All of them learn from requests made to them.

M just gets trained a bit better.

@mak63: I think even Google Now is a self learning AI completely. AIs are still babies, it needs superior interacting intelligence of humans to teach it many things.

I would say take away Cortana, she pokes her nose in everything if active. Much like the irritating paper clip guy in MS word. If Facebook M is any good then I would love to check it out.

Re: No comparison just yet
They are both servuce providers, but widely differ in how they do it.

The AI constructs are far more limited in the scope of things they can do.

Because M--right now-- is a front end/scheduler for human minions; more types of things can get done.

I wait for the inevitable expose in the next few months by one of the minions saying " I was a slave to M."

We can't really compare M to Siri, Now or Cortana. Otherwise it will be cheating, because of the M trainers, right?
