In a message posted on his Facebook page, the billionaire wrote that every year he ‘takes on a personal challenge to learn new things and grow outside his work at Facebook’.

“My personal challenge for 2016 is to build a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work. I'm going to start by exploring what technology is already out there. Then I'll start teaching it to understand my voice to control everything in our home - music, lights, temperature and so on. I'll teach it to let friends in by looking at their faces when they ring the doorbell,” says the message

According to Zukerberg, the new software will make sure that everything is OK in his daughter Max’s room and help him visualize data having to do with running the company.
