When it comes to Artificial Intelligence, Apple has its foot in the door, but other companies have blown that door wide open and taken over the room.
For whatever reason, Apple seems to greatly prefer Siri on iOS over Siri for the Mac. The virtual assistant debuted all the way back in 2011 alongside the iPhone 4s and just this year it finally moved to the Mac with macOS Sierra. But Apple still left one feature of Siri behind: “Hey Siri” activation.
Artificial Intelligence is a huge tentpole feature for many companies, including Facebook, Google, and even Apple.
I’m the forgetful kind. It’s the simple things like buying trivial items that gets me the most. I try to use apps and tools to help me with that. After upgrading to watchOS 3, I’ve found that the best way to do that, for me, is to use the new Reminders app and the new watch face complication.
Artificial intelligence, or AI, is the next big step in technology and consumer products, and Apple had a pretty big head start in the way it is being implemented now. But depending on who you ask, that head start may have been squandered.
Back in May of this year, Adam Cheyer and Dag Kittlaus showed off their new attempt at building a breakthrough artificial intelligence-based assistant.
Siri is finally available in macOS Sierra. It’s kind of like the Siri you’ve know to love (or tolerate) on iOS. But the things she can do on macOS are slightly different. So is the way you interact with her. If you just installed macOS Sierra and aren’t sure what you should be using Siri for, here are some ideas.
Siri is finally more open. Not open to all, but more open. You can now use Siri to interact with some special category of apps. You can do things like call an Uber or call your boss on Skype. Check out all the third party apps that work with Siri in iOS 10.
Siri has picked up some new jokes ahead of Apple’s big iPhone keynote on September 7. The virtual assistant offers funny responses when users say things like “see you on the seventh,” rather than actually talking about the event.
