Mark Zuckerberg’s Personal Challenge this 2016 is to Build a simple AI like “Jarvis”

Every year, we write down our resolutions and try our best to tick them off the list. We also take on personal challenges on how we can improve our lives at home, career, relationships, just to name a few.  Basically, we think that the incoming year is always the best time to learn and start anew.

New year resolutions

Research show that most of us really write down resolutions. However, the ultimate reason why it’s not being accomplished – we are setting unrealistic ones.

However, for Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, I don’t think this would be a problem. We all know how determined this guy is and looks like he will really finish what he started.

In addition, he also accomplished in the recent years some of his personal challenges like learning Mandarin, reducing his meat intake, read two books every month, just to name a few.

Likewise, on his post today, he mentioned that he will be taking another personal challenge to learn things and grow outside his work at Facebook.

He also mentioned that every challenge has a theme, therefore, his theme for 2016 is: invention. He wanted to build a simple “Al” which is like “Jarvis” in Iron Man.

Here’s a screenshot of his post on Facebook:

According to his post, he’d like to build a simple Jarvis-like to help him at work and/or run his home.

As we all know, Jarvis is Tony Stark’s loyal assistant and AI system. Also, Jarvis is an acronym for “Just a Rather Very Intelligent System.”  (Photo source: Marvel)

Well, we will be looking forward to this, Mark.

I, especially, as I’m sure mommas without helpers like me will find this extremely helpful!
