Mark Zuckerberg has programmed an artificial intelligence system in his home to belt out Red Hot Chili Peppers tunes.
The Facebook founder recently built the system in his house, which he named Jarvis after the AI character in Iron Man, according to a blog he wrote.
It controls various elements in his home, including lights, temperature, appliances, music and security.
The blog revealed a list of RHCP’s songs played in his house which included ‘Don’t Stop’, ‘Dani California’, ‘Under The Bridge’ and recent single ‘Dark Necessities’.
As Zuckerberg notes, programming AI to play the right kind of music is a complex challenge. “At this point, I mostly just ask Jarvis to ‘play me some music’ and by looking at my past listening patterns, it mostly nails something I’d want to hear.”
Meanwhile, Red Hot Chili Peppers were recently forced to postpone their forthcoming Dublin live dates.
The four-piece, who released their eleventh studio album ‘The Getaway’ earlier this year, completed the UK leg of their world tour earlier this week in London.
However, the band announced that they will be unable to fulfill their live commitments at Dublin’s 3Arena tonight and Wednesday night (December 20-21) due to illness. Apologising to fans in a statement, the Chilis revealed that frontman Anthony Kiedis has been suffering from flu recently.
“We are so sorry that we cannot come to Dublin as planned for the next few days,” the statement read. “Anthony has been fighting off the flu all week and after the show last night it was clear that he has to stop touring and recover, hence the decision to push back the shows to next year.”
The shows have been rescheduled for September, with original tickets valid for the new gigs – see the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ new Dublin dates below.
September 20 – 3Arena, Dublin
September 21 – 3Arena, Dublin
