Facebook Mark Zuckerberg: The Facebook founder has found his god for Jarvis, The choice no one would dare to reject and loved by all, for his home AI system called Jarvis and that celebrity is Morgan Freeman.  There could have been no one better than him.

This was Mark Zuckerberg’ s personal challenge for 2016 was to build a simple AI to run his home — like Jarvis in Iron Man. The smart JARVIS AI system can turn lights on and off, play music based on the personal tastes of both him and wife Priscilla Chan, automatically open their front gate for friends, make toast, and even wake up their one-year-old daughter Max with Mandarin lessons among other things. It can control temperature, appliances and security. But remember it is just a short glimpse presented to us in the video, yet can be more powerful, including security

The conversation with God Jarvis (Morgan) and Man Mark

-[Mark] Good morning Jarvis

-[Jarvis] Good Morning Mark

-[Jarvis], it’s Saturday, so you only have five meetings.

-[Jarvis]Room temperature is set to a cool 68 degrees.

-[Mark] Earliar this year, I started building a simple AI to help run our home. I talk to Jarvis using this app I built. It uses artificial intelligence to understand me and figure out what to do.

-[Jarvis] Max max woke up a few minutes ago. I’m entertaining her.

 [Max] Alright, lets go check her.

-[Jarvis] Good morning Max. -[Max cooing]

-[Jarvis] Lets practice our Mandarin. [Jarvis is speaking Mandarin]

[Mark] Jarvis your Mandarin is so soothing.

Jarvis also helps me get ready in the morning, says [Mark].

-Fresh Shirt.

-[Jarvis]Fire in the hole.

And blab la bla…..

 The complete video shows how all the tasks are being done by Jarvis, but is all looks like highly dramatic and fancy. There nothing like the real house of Tony Stark, Aka Iron Man actor and mind it zuckerberg is not a Iron Man.

On Morgan Freeman will be voice of the JARVIS:

AI Jarvis work began at the beginning of 2016 and took to Facebook in October to ask the public who they thought would be the perfect voice for it. 

Robert Downey Jr, who plays Iron Man, had offered to voice Jarvis, while Arnold Schwarzenegger features as an alternative, disciplinarian voice in jokey videos released by Mr Zuckerberg this week.

Morgan Freeman was the public choice to replace the standard female robotic voice with which the family currently interacts. He had given voice in Evan Almighty and the narrator in March of the Penguins

Building Jarvis, By Mark

My goal was to learn about the state of artificial intelligence -- where we're further along than people realize and where we're still a long ways off. These challenges always lead me to learn more than I expected, and this one also gave me a better sense of all the internal technology Facebook engineers get to use, as well as a thorough overview of home automation.

So far this year, I've built a simple AI that I can talk to on my phone and computer, that can control my home, including lights, temperature, appliances, music and security, that learns my tastes and patterns, that can learn new words and concepts, and that can even entertain Max. It uses several artificial intelligence techniques, including natural language processing, speech recognition, face recognition, and reinforcement learning, written in Python, PHP and Objective C. In this note, I'll explain what I built and what I learned along the way.

Who is Morgan Freeman?

Further Mark Zuckerberg has posted a second video, of his wife on 21st December. Showcasing a presumably fictionalized account of how his wife, Priscilla Chan, has dealt with having Jarvis installed. Arnold Schwarzenegger also appears as the original voice of Jarvis. You will still cringe at the attempts at humor.
