On Sunday evening, Mark Zuckerberg announced his personal Challenge for 2016. In recent years, the Facebook CEO has taken on many endeavours like reading two books a month, meeting a new individual every day and even few days ago, announced that he would be donating 99% of his stake in Facebook. Now the philanthropist has adopted a different route. In a statement published on his Facebook account he states:
“…My personal challenge for 2016 is to build a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work. You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man.
I’m going to start by exploring what technology is already out there. Then I’ll start teaching it to understand my voice to control everything in our home — music, lights, temperature and so on. I’ll teach it to let friends in by looking at their faces when they ring the doorbell. I’ll teach it to let me know if anything is going on in Max’s room that I need to check on when I’m not with her. On the work side, it’ll help me visualize data in VR to help me build better services and lead my organizations more effectively.“
