Mark Zuckerberg Reveals His Self-Built, AI Home System “Jarvis” in Funny Demo Video

Social Media Week

Mark Zuckerberg’s 2016 personal project is here, and he demonstrates it for the first time in a funny demo video. Not to mention the incredible celebrity voice cameo.

54 days until 20,000+ global leaders come together for SMW November Conference. Learn more.

Oh, Zuck. You silly, brilliant, mega-billionaire.

At the beginning of 2016, Mark Zuckerberg announced his new personal project, he wanted to build “a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work.” Zuck said “You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man.”

Well, 2016 is almost complete, and it looks like Zuckerberg delivered. For the first time, you can see “Jarvis” in action with the Zuckerbergs, featuring Mark, his wife Priscilla, baby Max, and of course the adorable Beast. If you want to read more about the technology behind Jarvis, Zuckerberg wrote about it here.

But, it’s the moment we’ve been waiting for. And just so you know, Zuck wants everyone to know “In case it’s not clear, this is meant to be a fun summary and not a live demo.”


In the video, you’ll notice a few plugs (in addition to Morgan Freeman’s voice as Jarvis) for Facebook products, such as Messenger bots and Aquila.

If you have any ideas for Zuck, and what else Jarvis should do, you can add a comment in his video post.
