Google Assistant is now two years old we just saw how advanced its AI and natural speech abilities are. That robot call demo from Google I/O is interesting in many ways (from an ethics point of view as well as technology). It also goes to show just how advanced Google Assistant is when compared to Siri and Alexa.
Creative Strategies, Inc. recently put together an in-depth study of iPhone X owners, hoping to get a feel for how early adopters feel about Apple’s newest flagship smartphone.
Way back in October, the Siri Team took some time to publish a new entry in Apple’s machine learning journal, putting some focus on the “Hey Siri” feature.
Apple is Going to Stop Siri From Reading Hidden Notifications on the Lock Screen in Upcoming Software Update
Apple is a security-centric company, but sometimes a bug or other issue will crop up that might leave a gaping hole in the hull.
With the launch of iOS 11, Apple made a distinct change with the way messages, and other content, is displayed on the lock screen of an iOS device.
Apple started selling its first smart speaker, the HomePod, earlier this year. And while the device’s sound performance was heralded all over the place, one of its major drawbacks for many reviewers and users was tied specifically to the company’s digital personal assistant, Siri.
Back in 2011, before Apple unveiled Siri to the world, speculation was rampant that Apple’s new “assistant feature” would be “world changing”.
A couple of years back, the iPhone felt like it was just constantly attached to you. It would never be more than a couple of feet from you. But now that we’ve got iPads, Apple Watches and AirPods, the iPhone now acts as a “base station” for all our connected devices. This means that it’s really easy to lose track of where your iPhone is. It’s somewhere in your home or office, but where exactly? Usually, you spend a couple of minutes frantically looking for your iPhone before heading out the door. Now, you can just use Siri to find out where your iPhone.
The recent iOS 11.2.5 update added new functionality to your iPhone’s personal assistant. Now, other than calling, translating, changing settings and answering your questions, Siri will play the latest news for you as well. And don’t worry, you won’t actually have to listen to Siri’s snarky voice reading out the news. Siri will play short daily news audio clips from various reputable publications.
