Mark Zuckerberg Just Unveiled His Newest Creation, an AI Named Jarvis


  • Inspired by Jarvis in Iron Man, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg built an AI system to run his home and help him with work.
  • Throughout the process, Zuckerberg realized we are still far off from understanding how artificial intelligence learns.
At the beginning of this year, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg challenged himself to build an AI system to run his home and help him with work. He named the project Jarvis, after the fictional AI system built by Marvel’s Iron Man. This Jarvis may not have the wit or the Mind Stone of his namesake, but what Zuckerberg has managed to build is pretty impressive.
Zuckerberg recently explained the process of building Jarvis, while also being quite candid about its strengths and weaknesses. The system helps him and his wife Priscilla around the home by turning lights on and off, letting them know where their dog Beast is, or alerting them if their daughter is stirring in her room.
Not only did Zuckerberg have to come up with ways to connect all of these devices, but he also had to do so safely. As Fast Company explains, the home network is essentially an extension of Facebook’s infrastructure, which “imposed limits on what he could control. Internet-connected fridges, for example, don’t come with Facebook security certificates. That’s not a problem for most people, but most people aren’t Mark Zuckerberg. Keeping his security at home airtight was a primary concern.”
One of the more interesting aspects of his project was how Zuckerberg chose to interact with Jarvis.

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

Can't Alexa and other smart home applications already do everything in that video?

I think Zuckerberg has just been itching to do some programming himself. It must be frustrating purely being in a management role all the time when originally you were a programmer.

Really interesting! I saw back at the beginning of the year that he was planning to create an AI for his home. It looks pretty tame so far but it's really only the beginning so it will be cool to see what Zuckerberg and other individuals and companies develop. Maybe Zuck's AI is the spark for other home AIs.


Ugh watch out for hackers though, watching you while you take a shit haha
