When Robert Downey Jr. shot the very first scene of Iron Man interacting with Jarvis in 2008, little did he knew that exactly after eight years, the reel life Jarvis will be transformed into real life. The Co-founder and CEO of world’s largest social media network, Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) is playing Iron Man in his real life as he has just introduced Jarvis as a result of a coding challenge.
In his latest video, posted on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg has funnily demoed some of the possible use cases of Jarvis powered with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Mark said it took one year of coding efforts to make Jarvis a playable app. he, however, clarifies that the use cases demoed in the video must be taken only with a pinch of salt as AI-technology is still at a very nascent stage.
In the latest video posted on his Facebook profile, Mark Zuckerberg can be seen starting his day with feeds from Jarvis. The AI-powered app greets Mark Zuckerberg on Saturday, informs him about the room and outside temperature and update him about his scheduled meetings for the day.
In the video, Mark explains that inbuilt AI capabilities of Jarvis help him to do various jobs in the most effective manner and, in turn, his productivity is improved by multi folds.
Jarvis is like a virtual companion of Mark, which helps him know about his family members’ activities, updates him when the breakfast is ready. Jarvis is also capable of taking real time instructions from Mark and set the things up.
But Jarvis’s capabilities are not limited to only family members. Mark Zuckerberg has, apparently, integrated Jarvis with Facebook to recognise the faces of other people. This feature an be a perfect use case of enhancing the security of your house when Jarvis can inform you about an unknown person knocking at your house gate.
But most of the features of Jarvis, demoed by Mark, are far from the existence in real life yet. Mark explains that Jarvis is at a very nascent stage in real life and was made a part of year challenge that he takes every year.
He also believes that it will take another five to six years for a solution like Jarvis to be available for people.
