Siri is Now Everywhere – and More Powerful Than Ever

Apple Siri

For the WWDC 2016 Apple has mapped your heart out. New hardware was Apple indeed guilty for iOS and macOS are now more powerful than ever – thanks to help from Siri.

One thing you have Apple be so, was Although seen in the keynote at the opening of WWDC 2016 no new hardware from software vision was the presentation of a festival. New interfaces everywhere, a lot of useful new features. And of course, a much improved Siri – which has now made the leap to the Mac.

Because whether iOS or the newly rechristened macOS: Apple has decided to take a bold step – and the developers given more access than ever before. Just the once almost hermetically sealed iOS provides developers since tonight more opportunities than they had ever dreamed. Whether the Apple Maps or Siri: Almost all the core features can be finally installed directly in the app or even expand itself. The user is likely to benefit quickly when iOS 10 and macOS Sierra waiting for them in the fall. Especially from the smarter Siri.

Comeback resoundingly

Because Apple’s voice assistant had lost in recent years powerful ground. Once the iPhone 4s introduced as a revolutionary feature that rivals Google Now, Cortana (Windows), Alexa (Amazon), and lastly, Viv Apple developed a Siri co-inventor had Siri not only caught up, but had long since passed before her. Today Apple has ushered the second half.

The new, smarter Siri is to be thanks to “Deep Learning” techniques able to better understand requests and proactively responding to them. So she now proposes to base about the site and all sorts of other, the information available actions, tries to guess what the user wants to do or write the same and connects information and requests in a meaningful way. And as Microsoft’s Cortana she now does so on their home computer. How well that will work in everyday life, of course, is still open. The showings made but really want more.

Understanding and wisecracks

The fact that Apple had to drill Siris performance is obvious. Explicitly, the significant improvement, however, was not advertised. This is quite unusual for the group, who likes to throw superlatives around. The advertised features suggest, however, that the purchased by Apple service VocallQ serves as the basis for the new Siri. The permits withDeep Learning and storing individual queries significantly more complex commands, as Siri dominated them before.

So now possible to add requests to a search, withdraw or refine individual parts of the request. In addition, Siri now understands much more colloquial answers – and commented during the presentation some inquiries with cheeky sayings. They were however only moderately funny, in the long run they could quite annoying. After all, they did not come with any search but remained the exception.

Siri for all

The most important step, however, is that Apple Siri now freely available for all developers. Should really make use of it, the user can finally rest assured that Siri next to them is in almost any situation – and not only when you use the few Apple apps.

Whether people will use the language assistant so frequently, is open. Most still feel uncomfortable to speak in public with the smartphone. This is suggested by all sorts of surveys. After all, Siri dominated now a silent mode in which it responds only to text ads.Silence commands like Facebook’s Messenger bots appear still to be lacking.
