Mark Zuckerberg’s dating advice for women who want wealth
Many were impressed by the New Year’s resolution that Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg posted on Facebook, but one woman’s comment sparked a response from him.
The comment was her telling her granddaughters that they should “date the nerd in school” because he might turn out to be somebody like Mark Zuckerberg.
Mark Zuckerberg did not agree with this ‘old fashioned’ idea of women marrying into power and status in society in order to gain power.
He then responded “Even better would be to encourage them to *be* the nerd in their school so they can be the next successful inventor!”
Zuckerberg’s New Year’s resolution is to build a computerized robot to help him run his home.
“My personal challenge for 2016 is to build a simple AI [artificial intelligence] to run my home and help me with my work,” he wrote in a post on his Facebook page. “You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man.”
Zuckerberg said he would start by “exploring” the technology that is already available.
“Then I’ll start teaching it to understand my voice to control everything in our home — music, lights, temperature and so on,” he wrote. I’ll teach it to let friends in by looking at their faces when they ring the doorbell.”
He added that the AI would also be used to help take care of his newborn baby, Max. “I’ll teach it to let me know if anything is going on in Max’s room that I need to check on when I’m not with her,” he wrote.
Some other leading technologists such as Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have expressed fear of AI platforms, saying AI could end up turning on humans.
Those worries were dramatized in last year’s Ex Machina.
The film also showed an AI-obsessed boss of a huge technology firm who lived in a computer-controlled house, who went on to create a dangerous robot out of the masses of data he had on his users.
Zuckerberg responded to those fears.
“I think we can build AI so it works for us and helps us,” he wrote. “Some people fear-monger about how AI is a huge danger, but that seems far-fetched to me and much less likely than disasters due to widespread disease, violence.”
