Everyone remembers Terminator 2 and the introduction of Cyber dyne systems and model 101 going live and becoming self aware in the late 90's. In 2011, we had Apple system's introduction of Siri their virtual assistant to guide you through your everyday life's basic tasks on all of their iOS devices. Siri can answer basic questions about the weather, movies, etc and schedule basic tasks through your Apple iOS device. It's now 2013 almost two years after the first release of Siri from Apple. Siri is now feeling a little lonely and needs some creative and smart company to revamp and add to her programming.
Apple's headquarters out of Cupertino, California recently posted on January 17th, 2013 a job posting for a creative writer for the Siri virtual personal assistant. Apple wants this applicant to have a love of language, wordplay, and conversation. They want you to be able to develop, write and edit original dialogue to extend the capabilities of Siri.
This is a fascinating thing to consider how Apple is going to pull this off with Siri. Since every person in the world has their own specific regional language, dialect and slang words. Also, will Siri take into account the ever changing popular pop culture words that go in and out of style everyday? Will Siri have to go completely global with world wide language support? These are some of the many questions to consider as Siri gains more knowledge with its for now faceless and nameless new love that will bring Siri into the years to come and Apple expanding her abilities.
The future is now as we continue to talk to our smartphone devices more with each passing year and more increasing number of devices are going to be controlled by our voices only.
