This is the world where everything is going to automate then how about the automated home control system. Mark also thought to build one. Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Facebook. This American computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur geek have a net worth are estimated to be $72.4 billion as by the latest statistic of 2018. Mark after being the sensation of the social networking world, also shared his interest in the Artificial Intelligent world.
Mark Zuckerberg started off his personal project in 2016 which was to build an artificially intelligent, particularly voice-controlled assistant for his home. Mark Zuckerberg the co-founder of Facebook has found a new system through which you can control home by simply talking to the laptop, computer or mobile phone. Mark has been on this code for about 100 hours. During this period, he also decided to give away the code after the completion of the first version of his own Iron Man-inspired Jarvis.
This system controls the lights, temperature, appliances, music, and security through voice. The technologies used to build this system is face recognition, natural language processing, speech recognition and reinforcement learning.
This system is made using Artificial Intelligence just like in the movie Iron Man. This system controls the lights, temperature, appliances, music, and security through voice. The technologies used to build this system is face recognition, natural language processing, speech recognition and reinforcement learning.
In one interview, Zuckerberg told that his goal was to understand artificial intelligence, but somehow he learned more than expected and understood more about the internal technology of Facebook. It was too complicated to connect all the devices of home and add communication between them.
In that interview Mark stated that "It's possible to control some of these using internet-connected power switches that let you turn the power on and off remotely," Moreover explaining it further, he said "But often that isn't enough. For example, one thing I learned is it's hard to find a toaster that will let you push the bread down while it's power off, so you can automatically start toasting when the power goes on. I ended up finding an old toaster from the 1950s and rigging it up with a connected switch."
With the huge number of queries, Mark explained each. Starting with, he created a Facebook Messenger chat bot instead of writing a dedicated app and seize advantage of Facebook's facial recognition for his door-facing cameras. Moreover, managed to drive the AI to thrive on relatively "open-ended" requests where it learns what works.
Functionalities for lights, thermostat, and doors, he used Creston system and for the music and Television used Spotify. For playing a song or turning on the lights he had to reverse engineer the API’s. He is still working on most of the devices and trying to build APIs for the same.
After coding the most important thing was to connect the home devices to computers or mobile and making them talk. Firstly, he tried to communicate through messages and after that added the facility to speak. This voice note is converted to text message so that it can be readable.
In his January 2016 post, while announcing the Jarvis project, Zuckerberg wrote that he’d set out to build a system offering him to take over everything in the house, including music, temperature, and lights, with his voice. Moreover, he also made sure that Jarvis can recognize his friends and let them in the house by just looking at their faces when they arrive.
In addition to that alert him to anything that needs to be noticed which is going on in Max’s room. And he hoped to design the system to “visualize data in VR to help him to provide better services and lead my organizations [ Facebook in this case] more efficiently.”
It used the words like the bedroom, lights, on, off, etc. to turn on and off lights. Also, it is mentioned that family room, living room, etc. are the synonyms of the bedroom only. It was really important to understand the context for Artificial intelligence because a single word has different meanings. Even playing music through AI is really tough because there are ample number tracks and play X music is difficult to understand for a computer.
It is a fact that the human brain reacts much faster towards images and videos and Face recognition is one of the major tasks in AI. Facebook has expertise in face recognition and the same can be used in this Jarvis to see if your friends are at the door and can be recognized easily. Mark programmed Jarvis on his computer and is able to communicate from anywhere.
Mark Zuckerberg declared that first, he is going to make a Jarvis app for iOS devices and then later he will give it to the Android version. Jarvis is for both text and image conversation and available even to entertain children.

He added that he will continue adding more features in Jarvis. It can be concluded that Jarvis in future going to be among topmost apps and much more accurate than our human senses.
