Mark Zuckerberg built an AI so he could listen to the Red Hot Chili Peppers
There are many uses for Artificial Intelligence, and as many sci fi films and television shows illustrate, the future possibilities for the technology are endless.
Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, decided to use Artificial Intelligence to play the Red Hot Chili Peppers in his house.
He recently built the AI, which he has named Jarvis after the Iron Man character.
As well as playing him his choice in music, it controls the lights, temperature, appliances, music and security in his house.
His blog showed a list of songs played in his house which included Don’t Stop, Dani California, Under The Bridge and Dark Necessities.
He wrote: "At this point, I mostly just ask Jarvis to ‘play me some music’ and by looking at my past listening patterns, it mostly nails something I’d want to hear."
That seems to be the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The Facebook founder also wrote that he had to connect many appliances in his house to the Internet, in order for the AI to control them.
He explained how he re-jigged a vintage toaster so it would make toast when the light switched on in the kitchen.
The blog is interesting and explains the AI in greater depth; the tech entrepreneur explained how he could control and talk to Jarvis by using Facebook messenger.
He also said he will be posting a video of Jarvis in the next couple of days.
