Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been hard at work developing an advanced artificial intelligence system for his home. Originally dreamt up as a personal challenge for 2016, Zuckerberg a few months ago explained that he was ultimately aiming to develop a system similar to Jarvis.
Zuck’s home is equipped with a smart home network that manages lights, the thermostat, and doors, and there’s a Sonos sound system with Spotify, smart TVs, and IP webcams. The basic tasks he set out to accomplish, like giving the bot voice recognition and the power to manage his home’s basic functions, pale in comparison to some of the more impressive features like, well, its ability to actually learn.
For anyone interested in the technical underpinnings of Zuckerberg’s home-based AI system, the Facebook CEO posted a lengthy note on his Facebook page that is well worth checking out.
