Mark Zuckerberg will demonstrate his AI-controlled home in September
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg hopes to demonstrate the domestic artificial intelligence system installed in his home this September
Zuckerberg gave the update on his home AI system, the creation of which was a personal goal for 2016, during a Facebook Townhall Q&A held in Rome and broadcast online. “When I walk up to my gate, I don’t have to put in a code or something like that to get in, or put in a key. It just sees my face and it lets me in,” he said.
The system can control gates, lights, and temperature, but so far has been calibrated for use solely by Zuckerberg himself. “It’s getting there,” he said. Thus Facebook could soon introduce its own answer to smart home control systems proposed by other consumer-facing technology giants such as Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomeKit.
