WATCH: Mark Zuckerberg Unveils Jarvis, his Artificial Intelligence Assistant Voiced by Morgan Freeman
Mark Zuckerberg has enlisted the help of Morgan Freeman to unveil his new artificial intelligence assistant.The Facebook founder and CEO showed off “Jarvis” with a post on the project and videos on his Facebook page.
The voice interactive assistant takes its name from a similar AI device in the Iron Man films. Freeman provides its voice.
Zuckerberg can be seen in the videos using Jarvis to control lights, the thermostat and even make toast. It also plays music, but when asked by Zuckerberg to play some good songs by the much derided Canadian band Nickelback, Jarvis replies: “There are no good Nickelback songs.”
The videos feature Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan, and their toddler daughter, Max.
When he says he’s testing other voices, Arnold Schwarzenegger is heard saying of Max, “Stop her! She’s getting away!”
Zuckerberg calls the videos “a fun summary.” Watch them below.
