The Facebook founder is working with artificial intelligence after admitting he wants an assistant like JARVIS from the Iron Man films.
Mr Zuckerberg revealed the surprising challenge on his Facebook page.
He said: “My personal challenge for 2016 is to build a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work.
“You can reckon of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man.”

He diplomacy to lecture the technology to know his voice so it can control everything in his home, such as music, lights and temperature.
He also wants to lecture the assistant to let friends into his home by looking at their faces when they ring the doorbell.
The philanthropist continued: “I'll lecture 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.
Mr Zuckerberg will start the project by exploring existing technology
“On the work side, it'll help me visualise data in VR to help me build better services and lead my organisations more effectively.”
Additional challenges Mr Zuckerberg has taken on in recent years have included reading two books every month and learning Mandarin.
