Mark Zuckerberg made a smart home AI and it's almost finished

JACOB KLEINMAN for TechnoBuffalo:  Back in January, Mark Zuckerberg announced that his personal challenge for the year would be to develop an artificial intelligence capable of controlling his house similar to J.A.R.V.I.S. from Iron Man. Now the Facebook CEO says he’s almost ready to show off the new AI.

“I hope to have a demo, hopefully next month,” he said during a Facebook Town Hall Q&A session broadcast live from Rome on Monday, August 29.

Zuckerberg’s AI is capable of controlling the house, including connected lights and thermostat.

Also, the last time we saw Sony's adorable little personal home-assistant robot, Xperia Agent, it didn't have a screen on its body. Now it does.

The Xperia Agent is still at concept stage, but it's getting more and more smart-home features as it edges towards the production line.

Sony showed off how it could now connect to a Nestlé smart coffee machine and serve up a caffeine fix at your command. 

It's really no more special than pushing a button on a smartphone app and having a connected machine start dripping out coffee, but it's undeniably more fun to see a small robot do so, while dancing along on your counter and blasting out notifications, such as the time and weather.  Cont'd...
