The announcement came from David Marcus, the Facebook Messenger lead:

 Today we’re beginning to test a new service called M. M is a personal digital assistant inside of Messenger that completes tasks and finds information on your behalf. It’s powered by artificial intelligence that’s trained and supervised by people.

And later confirmed by Jeremy Goldberg, the Product Designer:

Facebook is betting a lot on the success of “M”. The company explained that “M” is actually very different from all the  other AI-based services in the market:

M can actually complete tasks on your behalf. It can purchase items, get gifts delivered to your loved ones, book restaurants, travel arrangements, appointments and way more.

And because “M” benefits from all the research Facebook has been conducting on AI, it will also learn to become better and more responsive to your needs.
