Meet Jarvis: Mark Zuckerberg’s home controlling AI from Marvel’s Ironman
2 What is Jarvis and why Zuckerberg built it?
First of all, Jarvis was named after Marvel comics Ironman’s personal assistance and is designed to do basic things like turning lights on and off, control temperature, opening doors, playing music and other similar tasks in Zuckerberg’s California house. It takes advantage of speech recognition and natural language processing to perform the tasks given by user in his/her voice. It can also recognize faces and open doors for guests, tell Zuckerberg whether his daughter is up or asleep. It was one of the challenges to build an AI for his home and Zuckerberg accomplished it easily by the year end.
