Last year, Google announced Google Assistant, a big upgrade to Google Now, and a bigger push into a proper digital personal assistant.
Given how Siri can recognize practically anyone’s voice on your iPhone, it can open you up to multiple security concerns. Apple is seemingly coming up with a way to ensure that only your voice is recognized by Siri. The Cupertino giant has filed for a patent with the USPTO, discussing the intricacies of this feature.
This year, Siri has been outshone and surpassed by Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. While they’re not perfect, they’re doing things that Siri won’t, in a way that Apple wouldn’t. Apple’s privacy first, closed development policy isn’t quite working out when it comes to Siri. It’s time Apple unleashed its AI in iOS 11.
Smart homes are a big deal these days, and both Amazon and Apple would prefer it if you embedded yourself in their technological means to control those devices.
Samsung has been working on bringing a new, much-improved digital personal assistant to its devices, without having to leverage Google Assistant to achieve that goal.
Like many other companies, Apple’s focus on artificial intelligence (AI) is only getting sharper.
Movie tie-ins are starting to grow for Apple, and Siri seems to be the vehicle in which it wants to get the word (promotion) out.
Apple is constantly working behind-the-scenes to tweak Siri, sometimes adding a series of new answers to queries geared for high-profile events, like the National Football League’s Super Bowl.
Siri has been in the hot seat for a little while now, thanks to other companies out there seemingly outpacing Apple in the digital personal assistant front.
