During a trip to Italy, where he also met the pope, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that he is close to releasing a preview of an artificial intelligence (AI) project he has been working on since January. The AI can now control many things in Zuckerberg’s house, and while it is “still a work in progress,” it could be ready for public view in September.
“I got it to this point where now I can control the lights,” Zuckerberg said. “I can control the gates. I can control the temperature, much to the chagrin of my wife who now cannot control the temperature because it is programmed to only listen to my voice. Which is one of the perks of being an engineer—you can do that. I’ll give her access once I’m done.”
