Zuckerberg to host debates on tech future

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said this year he plans to host a series of public discussions about the challenges, opportunities and the role of technology in society.

In his New Year's resolution Facebook post, Zuckerberg said that he will meet with leaders, experts and people from different fields "every few weeks" and discuss "the future, the tradeoffs we face, and where we want to go." Zuckerberg said that he wants to debate out loud about the issues from artificial intelligence and the role of information gatekeepers to jobs, smartphones and how the internet can strengthen society.

This year's announcement is the latest in a string of Zuckerberg's New Year's resolutions that included learning Mandarin, building an artificial-intelligence system for his home and visiting every US state.
