Facebook Developing Virtual Assistants to Give the News

Here’s the intro from this “voicebot.ai” article:

Facebook is building a virtual assistant to digest, summarize, and read articles for users, according to a Buzzfeed report on a closed company meeting. The TL;DR tool, internet slang for “too long, didn’t read,” would use AI to condense articles into bullet points and read them out loud for users who want to skip reading it for themselves. The social media giant also discussed other planned AI projects, including creating a neural sensor to detect thoughts as they form and turn them into commands to AI assistants.
