Mark Zuckerberg Is So Rich He Got Morgan Freeman to Voice His Virtual Home Assistant
The Facebook co-founder shows off his new AI, Jarvis.
Being a billionaire certainly has perks.
Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg got actor Morgan Freeman to be the voice of his artificial intelligence assistance Jarvis (cheekily named after Tony Stark's Jarvis AI from the Iron Man movies).
Zuck has been working on Jarvis for about a year, and in the video below, you'll see him using it to manage many things in his household -- including room temperature, his toaster and teaching his daughter Mandarin. You even see him use it to get one of his signature grey T-shirts to him by a cannon-like device.
The billionaire decided to create Jarvis after he wanted to learn more about AI.
"My goal was to learn about the state of artificial intelligence -- where we're further along than people realize and where we're still a long ways off," Zuckerberg said in a Monday Facebook post. "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."
This one definitely gets a "Wow."
