5 Things You Should Know About Jarvis, Mark Zuckerberg’s AI Rival to Amazon’s Alexa
Mark Zuckerberg is not the type to quit a New Year’s resolution. Over the past few years Zuckerberg has let the world in on the unique “personal challenges” that he partakes in throughout the year. Past challenges have included learning Chinese and only eating meat from animals that he killed himself.
2016’s personal challenge was a little more tech-related than some of his past ventures. Zuckerberg has spent the past year creating an AI system named Jarvis that is customized specifically to his family’s home.
According to Reuters, Zuckerberg created the system in about 100 hours over the past year in an effort to learn more about the state of artificial intelligence, as it exists right now.
