He said that more work on Jarvis could make it a great foundation on which to build a new product.
The Jarvis project places Zuckerberg in the same class as Sutardja as a master tinker.
The year-long project was part of an effort to learn about the state of artificial intelligence, Zuckerberg wrote, and also an opportunity to experiment with cutting-edge technology at a time when voice-activated assistants like Amazon's Echo and Google Home are gaining widespread popularity.
Zuckerberg will reveal his challenge for 2017 "in a few weeks".
At the same time, he said challenges lead to eureka moments.
"Jarvis also likes to join our family for playtime", the dad of one explains as he and his family relax in bed together.
Blake Griffin Will Miss 3-6 Weeks Following Knee Surgery
Blake Griffin will undergo surgery on the knee that has been bothering him in the past month, according to a report . Averaging 21.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists, the 27-year-old has helped the Clippers to a 20-8 start.
On the other hand, while he may have been better off simply buying an Amazon Echo, it's still pretty fantastic that one man's expertise was enough to achieve what Amazon has spent millions of dollars developing.
Zuckerberg noted that computers are getting better at learning patterns such as facial recognition, but it is quite a task to teach them something new.
As we sweep through Zuckerberg's enormous, minimalist home, we witness Jarvis provide calendar briefings, entertain Zuck's daughter Max in Mandarin, identify and let people into his home, control the lights and play music. It is a freaky video, to say the least, one in which Zuckerberg comes off looking more artificial than the system he created, which he calls Jarvis.
Inside, there's a round-robin newsletter: "Chloe is showing a real affinity for ballet (more good toes than naughty toes!) while Tucker is reading well above grade level - who knew eight-year-olds would enjoy Dostoevsky?!" As the systems are based on different languages and protocols, Zuckerberg had to first write code that would connect all of the disparate systems together. He also plans to create an Android app for the same and add more commands. "In the middle of the day, if someone arrives at my home, Jarvis can text me an image and tell me who's there, or it can text me when I need to go do something".
One thing that surprised me about my communication with Jarvis is that when I have the choice of either speaking or texting, I text much more than I would have expected.
