Zuckerberg wants an AI butler

what-we-learned-about-facebook-ceo-mark-zucke-L-gl5gYRSocial Notworking supremo Mark Zuckerburg wants to build an artificially intelligent assistant in 2016 to help run his home and assist him at work.

While he is not the first rich person to want a butler, Zuckerburg does have the cash to develop one.

Zuckerberg makes a New Year’s resolution every year and revealed his cunning plan in a Facebook post.

“You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man,” Zuckerberg wrote.

Zuckerberg will start the project by exploring existing technology, he wrote. He will then begin teaching the technology to understand his voice so that it will learn to control everything in his home, such as music, lights and temperature.

His plans also include teaching the assistant to let friends into his home by looking at their faces when they ring the doorbell, Zuckerberg wrote. The assistant will visualize data to support Zuckerberg at work, he wrote.

“This should be a fun intellectual challenge to code this for myself,” Zuckerberg wrote. “I’m looking forward to sharing what I learn over the course of the year.”

Previously his New Year’s resolutions have involved reading two books every month and studying Mandarin – although why he needed a year to look at a fruit is anyone’s guess.
