A Smarter Siri
Apple’s voice-driven personal assistant, Siri, is arguably among the tech-firm’s signature software features. But while Siri has been refined and updated numerous times over the years — acquiring new skills and intelligence, allowing her to adapt even in real-time — she’s unfortunately still considered by many to be among the least-reliable voice assistants in use today.
Sure, Apple made some commendable improvements in iOS 12, introducing its all-new Siri Shortcuts app — the first-fruits of its 2017 WorkFlow acquisition — to help seamlessly create and manage tasks.
But, the fact still remains: Siri’s performance is rather sub-stellar, so much so that the iPhone-maker recently hired a veteran AI expert with years of experience as an engineering executive at Google to help breathe fresh life into Siri.. And so we certainly hope to see some of those new developments, too, when iOS 13 is unveiled this summer.
