Technology is going leaps and bounds every minute of the day! Who would have thought there was once a time when no smartphones existed and people survived! With everyone constantly connected to each other through some or the other source, it was not surprising when Mark Zuckerberg announced the testing of a new technology.
The brain behind Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, uploaded a video showing a new virtual assistant named Jarvis. It is a technology which programs itself to your needs and executes tasks. Have you ever told yourself, “I wish I didn’t have to get up and turn the light off”? Well, Jarvis helps you do the mundane tasks around the house like switching on and switching off the lights?
What is Mark Zuckerberg’s Jarvis All About?
Jarvis, the name comes from Iron Man, wherein he is Stark’s AI system that assists him in dominating the world. It is actually an acronym that stands for “Just a Rather Very Intelligent System.” Mark Zuckerberg’s invented technology is very interesting indeed. It is a lazy man’s dreams come true.
Though it may ease the troubles of a lazy person, the one who invited the technology is far from lazy. Zuckerberg runs the most profitable company in the world and that sure keeps him busy! However, what is inspiring is that this 32-year-old CEO sets for himself some goals each year. Jarvis is the result of one such goal.
Inspiring Journey Leading Up To Creation Of Jarvis
The goal that Mark kept in 2010 was to learn Mandarin while in 2012 he decided to take the challenge of coding every day. In 2015, his challenge was to read a book every two weeks, reports The Fast Company. Present year, he took up two challenges- one is to build a virtual assistant at home and the other is to run 365 miles.
In a time and age when most do not raise their heads up from phones, tablets, screens- the conceptualization of Jarvis seems more like feeding into the isolated environment we live in. Having mentioned that, no one can stop technology from advancing. As better technologies come around, there will always be people to use. The onus is always on the user to see where they draw the line!
