Hello it’s Rachel here,

I’ve come across this really interesting article on Facebook’s latest adventure building a new digital assistant called ‘Moneypenny’

Facebook is aiming to take on the already established virtual assistants market such as Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana, by apparently using humans to power Moneypenny!

The system will be used to research and order products, although it is still in a beta testing stage internally within Facebook, who refuse to comment on the topic.

As the article says ‘The first major battle between humans and machines may be fought in the world of online personal assistants.’

We’ll have to wait and see what comes of this new venture!
