Yesterday I read an article about an iPhone apps named "Siri", which insists the apps can be a personal assistant to a person. It could do anything we want it to do using voice command. The articles adds that the apps is so great that Apple acquired the company. Sounds cool for me, so I downloaded it and wanted to have a hand on it.
Before getting to bed, I tried to play with it. Well, it is not as great as what it sounds like. The voice recognition is still behind Google's voice recognition. When I was about to give up and almost decided to uninstall it, came into my mind a pretty nifty idea. So I tried this:
Aha, so actually I can really say things to this apps. Below is my conversation between me and the iPhone apps along the night: (captions are on top of every screenshot)
Say Hi to the Apps
Personal Inquiry (Rude Version)
It realizes that I was only joking
Suddenly love blooms
Love rejected, but I still need one
An awkward feeling after you found out that the person you're crushing on, doesn't even know his/her gender
An appreciation and (halau nampak....)
Actually there was a lot more but I couldn't fit them all here. Although the product itself does not live up the hyped expectation, this is only the beginning of a much more sophisticated technology. With a computer named "Watson" (developed by IBM) that can beat champions in Jeopardy, Google Goggle that can recognize images and even solve sudoku (?!) , a handy personal assistant like this "Siri" apps, and a game console without controller like Xbox Kinect, I wonder what are things coming to our way in future. Indeed, "the future is now".
