Do you remember AI Jarvis from Iron Man? Mark Zuckerberg has created a real-one too
Los Angeles : You all must have some fascination towards Tony Stark's Jarvis in the Iron Man films. And, if you thought that getting such Artificial Intelligence was Mission Impossible then don’t worry.
Our very own Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg has accomplished the task.
The Facebook owner had earlier revealed that his resolution in 2016 will be to create a home AI butler based on Tony Stark's Jarvis.
On Monday he announced that he has one of his own- one that not only can control his home, but can also entertain his daughter Max, and even fire him a trademark grey t-shirt.
Informing his fans, Zuckerberg in a video revealed that he has also persuaded Morgan Freeman to voice the AI - while Arnold Schwarzenegger failed for being too scary.
The Facebook founder also told users 'In case it's not clear, this is meant to be a fun summary and not a live demo.'
Zuckerberg also agrees that he and his wife Priscilla don't always see eye to eye on the AI - and that she was unable to use it at first.
His statement read: “My personal challenge for 2016 was to build a simple AI to run my home -- like Jarvis in Iron Man. My goal was to learn about the state of artificial intelligence - where we're further along than people realize and where we're still a long ways off. So far this year, I've built a simple AI that I can talk to on my phone and computer, that can control my home, including lights, temperature, appliances, music and security, that learns my tastes and patterns, that can learn new words and concepts, and that can even entertain Max. It uses several artificial intelligence techniques, including natural language processing, speech recognition, face recognition, and reinforcement learning, written in Python, PHP and Objective C.”
To create the AI, Zuckerberg was able to use Facebook's internal tools. The system is modelled on the J.A.R.V.I.S. stands for (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System) system used by Tony Stark in the Iron Man films.
