Cook States Apple has "cool ideas about what Siri can do"
During a recent interview at the All Things D conference, Tim Cook hinted at the future of Siri stating that the company has “a lot going on” in its development that users will see in the upcoming months. After stating the obvious that Siri is one of the most popular features of the iPhone 4S, Cook hinted that Apple is nowhere near done with its development for the feature. The Cupertino California company has “some cool ideas about what Siri can do.”
“I think Siri has proven that voice is something people want to do,” adding that customers will “be pleased with where Siri is going,” and that new features will be seen in the “coming months.” It was explained that the key feature of Siri is not the voice recognition technology of it, but instead the understanding of natural human language. The artificial intelligence of Siri according to Cook is “something people have dreamed about for years.”
Although there seems to be quite a bit of vagueness about the whole ordeal, Cook did hint towards some possible improvements. According to Cook, Siri could be improved if it were made broader and he even went as far as mentioning that the company sees “unbelievable potential” in expanding the technology. Apple is said to be “doubling down” on Siri development going forward. We’ll have to wait and see what features Apple releases for Siri in the future by being patient.
