When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, most of us promise to go to the gym more or cut down on screen time. Mark Zuckerberg’s goal is a little more ambitious — he plans to build an artificially intelligent assistant to help run his house and assist him at work.
It will be “kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man” Zuckerberg wrote, referring to the Marvel comic, in a Facebook post announcing his 2016 objective.
The founder of Facebook said he will explore existing technology before teaching the system to understand his voice, identify friends who ring his doorbell and monitor his house.
“This should be a fun intellectual challenge,” he wrote. “It’s a different kind of rewarding to build things yourself.”
