What is Siri?
One of the main features of the new iPhone 4s is the availability of an intelligent voice assistant called Siri. It is worth noting that the work in Apple on this issue has been going on for a very long time. But only now the capacities of mobile devices have reached the necessary minimum (imagine what will happen with the growth of these capacities). What is this Siri? let's see more.
The concept of such a system was born in Apple back in 1987, or rather even earlier, because at 87 they already demonstrated a service managed by a human voice, under the name of Knowledge Navigator.
The most important difference between the developments of Apple, even its first version, was that they not only recognized the voice and reacted to the commands, there are many such systems, but analyzed and memorized, building relationships and learning opportunities. It's quite artificial artificial intelligence.
And as a result we see, while not yet ideal, but already revolutionary Siri.
Siri does not just listen and execute commands, she analyzes, compares and remembers all that was said and written by you .. and not just you. However, she performs the commands at the proper level.
Set a timer for a certain time? To write to someone sms? Read the answer? Match the response with your calendar and give an answer based on the data received? these and many more cases - for Siri, the simplicity and simplicity, the main simplicity.
And do not expect that Siri will go into a stupor, if you have something not pronounced or asked a non-convenient question, you can ask questions in a variety of forms, Siri knows the answer. For example, you can ask "what is the weather at the north pole", "will it rain today?", Or "do I need to take an umbrella or a space suit to go out into the cold," Siri understands what you want to know, regardless of the wording and answers correspondingly. So do not be surprised if she offers you the types of spacesuits to choose from
Of course, Siri is closely integrated with iOS 5 and with most of the most important applications, the list of which will only grow. Because everything is analyzed in general, that is in your smartphone and something even beyond its limits. Afraid that Facebook is watching you? - get Siri, who does not follow, who just knows everything about you. She does not need names, she knows the name of your wife, son, daughter, beloved masseuse. Never before has voice control been so simple and convenient.
We are entering a wonderful time, when everything that the science fiction writers have predicted for decades begins to come true year after year. And it's no surprise that all the pre-orders for iPhone 4S, with Siri on board, were dared in a few days. People want to live in the future, not the present, and Apple does everything in its power to do this.
