"Component" human assistant M will enter the "action" when the software will not be able to answer her own question, users can talk to me like talk normally with a friend, an interface chat similar in normal of Facebook

M is able to put them various questions to users and what kind of answers you provide, and the latter receiving various information while fulfilling certain tasks, all without knowing whether the responses stand behind a person or an algorithm.

Fortunately for many security analysts, M is thought to analyze information on our work within Facebook, so it can only function on the basis of details provided in our interactions with him, but of course a lot can change until the official launch.
