If you all have not heard of IPHONE 4S been release and big buzz that come with IPHONE 4S is a new application call siri, if you have not heard about this maybe you have been leaving in a nutshell or something.
Here is a video what is SIRI ALL ABOUT BY APPLE
Here is what SIRI is all about that come with IPHONE 4S:
When APPLE announce IPHONE 4s earlier this month, the company also properly introduced the world to Siri. Siri is a speech-recognition "personal assistant" that's built into all Apple iPhone 4S smartphones. The software isn't an "app" in the iPhone sense, meaning it's not something you can download from the App Store (although it used to be; see A Brief History of Siri below). It doesn't have an icon that you press from the phone's screen to launch it.
So what is Siri, exactly, and where did it come from?
Siri is a speech-recognition computer application. It has both speech input and output, meaning you can speak to it, and it can speak back to you.
You speak to Siri to ask it questions and give it commands, such as small tasks that you'd like it to complete. For example, ask Siri about the weather, and it will respond out loud with a short summary of the day's weather report and on-screen with a snapshot of the five-day forecast. Tell Siri that you need to schedule an appointment for 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, and it will add an item to your calendar, then confirm verbally that it has done so. Say you receive an incoming text message but can't devote your eyes to the screen to read it; you can command Siri to read it aloud to you. Siri does not process your speech input locally on your phone. The software sends commands through a remote server, so you have to be connected to Wi-Fi or a 3G signal.
But i can say that Siri is a humorous persona assistant even though she don’t sound like joking but she is a bit sarcastic in a good way
Obviously you would want to know how Siri was first make right?
If you don’t mind let me call SIRI as a software
Siri is not the first voice activated and speech recognition apps but it ihave the capabilities of VoiceOver it is a technology that have been use by Mac computer and even in Iphone 3GS. The purpose of VoiceOver is to help people that visually imparied and people that having problem to operate Iphones such as people that having eye sight problem. But for Siri the purpose is to target the mass market and it have done that.
At first Siri is a type of application in APPLE STORE but after Apple acquired Siri Inc in 2010 the company that responsible that develop Iphone apps known as Siri Personal assistant apple took down the apps right away from App store
For Iphone 4s Siri is still in beta mode so that is the limitation of that software because it is still new it need to collect a lot of data of different type of language, accents and dialect in the WORLD because there is some of the video online say that it can detect the accents of Japanese even SIRI even the wrong answer what the people is asking. Even it said do not understand what is that. Here is the video of Japanese English accent
Because it is in BETA mode only certain application is supported. It only works on
