Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of perennial time-waster Facebook, has decided the day-to-day of making toast, picking out a shirt, or teaching his daughter Mandarin is a little too much for a 32-year-old technology giant. So he did what any average joe would do: He built an AI inspired by Iron Man and voiced by Morgan Freeman to run his house for him.
Taking smart houses to the next level, Zuckerberg built the AI “Jarvis,” a functional AI he communicates with through his iPhone. He posted a video, which as he claims “is meant to be a fun summary and not a live demo,” but it should still leave you plenty jealous.
In a note on Facebook, he did post his methods for building Jarvis as well as some features, like face and voice recognition that allows people into his house and standard smart home functions, such as turning off and on lights.
Just think what I could do with all that time you spend answering the door and picking out a shirt. I could, um… Or, um… We’ll keep you with all the riveting things I could do with the time saved. Until then, enjoy the video.
