Facebook s new home AI system goes by the name Jarvis.

Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has unveiled a new artificial intelligence system which has been made to control things around his home.

The artificial intelligence system, Jarvis, named after the virtual assistant in Iron Man, is able to choose and play music, control lights, communicate with Zuckerberg via phone and computer and other activities around the home.

Almost a year ago, the Facebook CEO announced his plan to build an AI system as one of the personal growth challenges he gives himself each year, and for him, this was a return to his programming roots.

In a recent post on the update of the process, Zuckerberg wrote: My goal was to learn about the state of artificial intelligence- where we re further along than people realise and where we re still a long ways off.

These challenges always lead me to learn more than I expected, and this one also gave me a better sense of all the internal technology Facebook engineers get to use, as well as a thorough overview of home automation.
