Remember what it feels like when you watch Minority Report? And while Tom is having a hard time solving the crime he didn’t commit were talking to his gadgets and the gadgets response? Now the cloud is clear and the technology is here. Few years later, Minority Report can be the next real things that’s better, LOL, its rhyme.
Tim Cook, who represents Apple after the late Steve Jobs, has introduced what are people expected to be as an iPhone 5, but it is actually an iPhone 4S.The launch wasn’t really about the phone at all. It was about the software inside and possibly the kick-start of the next big revolution in how we interact with our gadgets.
That software is called Siri, but Apple would like for you to think of it as your “intelligent assistant.” And what Siri does is nothing short of amazing thing.
Siri can listen to your natural language, as in English in terms of questions or requests and respond like a digital secretary. It’s not just that Siri listens, either. The software is capable of understanding the context of what you’re talking about, so if you ask it to set an alarm on your phone, it will ask you for what time. And again, you don’t. Have. To. Talk. Really. Slowly.
If you ask Siri to schedule an appointment, it will not only check to see if it conflicts with any of your other meetings but will help you juggle the time slot until you have your day’s events mapped out. Siri will find movie theaters close to you or tell you how to get home from your current location. It can identify family members, spouses and co-workers you’re always talking to, and it knows when people’s birthdays, anniversaries or other big events are coming up.
Here’s how SIRI works. Find more fun with Siri when it responds with weird actions.
