Mark Zuckerberg dedicated 100 hours on a personal project to make a system inspired by the Iron Man film character Jarvis as a virtual assistant to help manage his household. What more, the house butler is named Jarvis. He commented, “In some ways, this challenge was easier than I expected. In fact, my running challenge took more total time.” He had taken a resolution to run 365 miles in 2016.
Jarvis is an application Zuckerberg and his family can access through his phone or computer to control lights, temperature, music, security, applicances and more. The application also has the ability to entertain Zuckerberg’s one year old daughter. It is a machine learning software that learns his tastes and preferences, new words or concepts.
The software even has Natural language processing and Facial recognition capabilities. This lets the software understand natural language, and even tell which person is issuing them. The software has the ability to have different tastes and preferences in music, air-conditioner temperature, or other things for each person, and can do the required job for the person when it recognizes the voice of the person issuing the command.
