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.
A hacker group called OurMine logged on to Facebook mogul Mark Zuckerberg's Pinterest, Twitter and Linkedin accounts this weekend with his terribly unsafe password: dadada. Fortunately for him, it appears not to be a very malicious hack, they left messages on his profiles saying, "We are just testing your security". This has sparked a lot of talk about internet and password security. It's also garnered some snarky comments about the way Facebook deals with your information.
Ever since the news broke about 9th grader Ahmed Mohamed getting arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school, #IStandWithAhmed has exploded and support has come from some very powerful people.
First, the President complimented the clock and extended an invite to the White House.
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.— President Obama (@POTUS) September 16, 2015
Then Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg applauded Ahmed's ingenuity and desire to build. And also extended an invitation to the company.
But was Ahmed building a BLACK clock? #IStandWithAhmed— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) September 16, 2015
I still can't build a clock. #IStandWithAhmed— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) September 16, 2015
You know you hate just about most of the things that you see on Facebook. The baby pictures, the couples in gooey love, the political nonsense, the insanely inaccurate information, the list goes on forever and grows every day.
Well, rejoice, you cynical a**holes.
Mark Zuckerberg confirmed during a Facebook headquarters Q&A Sept. 15.
According to Re/code:
"I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we're working on it and shipping it," Zuckerberg said.
He told the audience that the company realized people want to express emotions other than positivity, especially around posts about sensitive subjects like the Syrian refugee crisis.
He didn't give further information as to what the "Dislike" button might look like. We could look to the new "reactions" product from workplace chatting app Slack as a possibility. Slack's reactions allow people to comment with a full range of emojis on others' posts, which leads to everything from check marks to laughter and food images to animated hands clapping.
We won't put all of our eggs in this thumbs down basket just yet. This is in direct opposition to what Zuckerberg said just nine months ago when he said there were no plans to introduce such a thing.
But if you'd like to take today's news as the truth, then strap on your dancin' hooves and get hatin'.
On Wednesday Mark Zuckerberg did his first ever public Q&A in Chinese at Tsinghua University in Beijing to discuss connecting the world, Internet.org, innovation and the early days of Facebook.
Did we mention he did almost the entire session in Mandarin?
As surprising as it is to hear the Facebook CEO break out his Mandarin, it seems that his skill level is far from perfect. Quartz stated "his enunciation was roughly on par with the clarity possible when someone's stepping on your face" and he speaks it "like a seven year old" according to Foreign Policy.
If you are wondering why Zuckerberg knows Mandarin he listed three reasons:
1. His wife is from China and she speaks Mandarin with her grandmother. He wants to interact with her family.
2. He wants to further his understanding about China/Chinese culture. He thinks learning a new language definitely helps him widen his knowledge, etc..
3. He mentioned that Mandarin is hard, he love challenges.
Facebook's first day of public trading, by the numbers: 571 million shares traded, a 23 cent gain in share price (up to $38.23 from an initial price of $38), and one hilarious parody video from the Taiwanese animation wizards at Next Media.
And how did all of this affect Mark Zuckerberg's personal wealth? The Wall Street Journal is glad you asked. You can refer to their live tracker of the kid billionaire's fortunes for all your Zuckwatch 2012 needs.
