Play It Another Time, Siri

Adam Cheyer, Dag Kittlaus and Chris Brigham are three names that certainly will not tell you nothing, but Siri, its creation, insurance that you sound more. The three became part of the family of Apple together with the rest of the engineers of the startup led by Kittlaus when they were acquired in 2010 by $ 200 million. The engagement did not last long, and although technology remained, for September 2012 many of them already had left their posts in Cupertino to found a new company, Viv Labs.

Its aim is none other than the of overcome the current limitations of Siri to create a new virtual assistant, a powerful, flexible, and omnipresent artificial intelligence. Wired has devoted a long article with some certainly hard to believe statements, but that is not the issue. Ignoring all the mumbo-jumbo marketing, what Viv proposes is a step that no term to understand why Siri has not yet given, three years after its launch.

“I need to buy some economic wine on the way home from my brother that goes well with the lasagna”

Siri, Google Now, Cortana… None is close to be less support before a request like this. According to its creators, Viv may. In “second a fraction”, Viv rot the phrase identifying lasagna as a type of food, our brother as a relationship and a House as a type of address; simultaneously solving each problem individually and composing a response with all the variables in mind consulting services recommendation of wines, looking for stores that do not depart too of our route, reviewing their catalogs to see if they have what we need and offering us a list sorted by price.

Kittlaus not only expects us to believe that Viv response to this consultation will be satisfactory and instant, also that the system will be who is automatically set to access the APIs of all services that need at a given time. Viv is not limited to a list of questions (or questions models) introduced by hand by its programmers, but that will be able to find life to always help the user.

I have hunted, not swallow me not a Word, and as much as I hope that when it launches, Viv is a more commercial version of Wolfram Alpha, but as I said at the beginning, that is not the issue. Kittlaus and partners (multi-million dollar) at least dare to think big. Meanwhile, for its fourth iteration, Siri will be presented at 8 iOS with six news:

  • Hey, Siri. When we have the phone on charge he is always listening to waiting for our call. Basically it’s “OK, Google” function only that without the chip of low consumption of Moto X (at least in current devices, do not be surprised if the iPhone 6 supports it at all times).
  • Support of HomeKit. If we have our home domotic, you can tell Siri that turn off the lights and close the doors. Mola… If we have our House domotic… but cool, seriously.
  • Recognition of songs via Shazam. An incremental, though not particularly impressive improvement. For that we already had Shazam to accounts and given that Siri overrides any other app that is playing sound at that time, also serves to identify the song playing in a podcast for example.
  • Purchases of content via iTunes. I guess it’s OK, especially for Apple.
  • Block voice recognition. Definitely it’s an improvement, although one arriving with at least one or two years behind the competition. Thanks, but it is applauded.
  • Support for 22 additional languages. The more better, nothing to object.

Either would be more if Siri stopped being an iOS exclusive Assistant for dare once with OS X

Would be nice I suppose, if the speed and intelligence of Siri were several magnitudes by on top of what you are now. If you contase with an API for developers. If you were able to connect people with places and dates that we already include in our reminders. And neither would be more if Siri stopped being an iOS exclusive Assistant for dare once with OS X.

The latest rumors suggest that Microsoft hopes to do the same with Cortana and Windows 9. Bad signal if Redmond walk more savvy in Cupertino despite having the latest targeting the race. Is not an empty request: Siri in OS X can have as much or more sense than IOS, and can reveal our ways of interaction once admitted that the speed to which Viv aspires to carry out our mandates is pure quackery.

Is there any justifiable reason why Siri, an Assistant for voice, is over 100% of the screen to respond to our requests? More complex than the current tasks should not be a dream if they are in the background. If I’m working on a project and arises me the need to take a plane, I is no problem that Siri go looking for my flights more convenient, even until you ask for them. And if he shows me, it does not block me, leaving me to continue with what he was doing, looking at something else, or make another parallel query without the previous pass into oblivion, so Yes will be arriving at something.

We often say that Apple rarely are the first, but they tend to be the best. With Siri were the first, it is high time that demonstrate that it was something more than a lucky purchase that accompany the launch of iPhone 4S. Siri needs an ambitious roadmap and the leadership and the resources needed to fulfill it.
