Mark Zuckerberg's house is smarter than your house — and he's almost ready to prove it.
The Facebook CEO, who is building an artificial intelligence system to operate and control his home, says he's almost ready to show off what he's been working on.
"I'm making progress," Zuckerberg said at a public Q&A in Italy on Monday. "I hope to have a demo, hopefully next month."
Zuckerberg is building the tech as part of his New Year's resolution. "You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man," he wrote back in January. Zuckerberg says his AI assistant can already do simple things like control the lights and adjust the thermostat.

"[That's] much to the chagrin of my wife, who can now not control the temperature because it is programmed to only listen to my voice," he joked. "Which is one of the perks of being an engineer, you can do that."
It can also make him toast, which we learned back in June, and added on Monday that the gate leading up to his house opens automatically as he approaches thanks to facial recognition technology. We don't know when, exactly, he'll show off his new home, but you can bet it will be on Facebook. And hopefully it works better than the connected home Disney thought up back in the late 90's that eventually tried to take over the home's inhabitants. Scary!
You can hear Zuckerberg talk about it during his public Q&A in Italy at the 52 minute mark.
