I do these personal challenges every year.
And this year, I have two.
One is to run 365 miles.
So an average of one mile a day.
And then the other one is to build-
That is not a challenge.
Yeah, I know.
A mile a day-
So that was the easy one.
The other one was to build AI that controls my home.
Okay, that's a little more challenging.
Yeah, so I figured doing something physical is good.
In order to offset all of the sitting that I'm gonna be doing
writing this AI.
So, the AI is going pretty well I can now basically talk into my phone and tell it to turn off the lights, or turn up and down the temperature
or let people in through the gate.
You know the new thing that I'm working on is we have this camera at the gate And it can now look at who is coming up and even before they ring the doorbell, know if I want to let them in.
So, take my wife, for example, she's a good one to let in.
She can just walk up and it's like, Hey Priscilla, come in.
So that is That's a pretty fun one, that we're working on.
And, maybe I'll do it live in a few weeks, demoing some of this stuff.
Right, isn't it funny, how we work so hard, to just eliminate a little bit of effort?
I mean, to get the door.
It's not that much work.
But we are going to put in a tremendous amount of work To just save us walking to the door and opening it.
Yeah, you know, this one is, the challenge is more about the practice of writing this code,
And learning about AIs,
And actually having it.
I mean, in a few years, I think there will be better technology that can do a lot of this stuff.
I enjoy the process of writing something that can understand the language, that can understand voice, that can you know do the vision processing of as someones walking up the door can try to figure out who it is.
And that part is interesting to me and I think in running Facebook, a technology company, it's also good practice.
I mean if I'm completely out of touch with the stuff that people here are doing then I'm probably not going to do that good of a job of running the company.
So, there's that.
