  • If you got yourself the new iPhone then you fell in love with Siri, because she's helping you do stuff like make phone calls.

  • You can joke around with her. You're flirting with her, and she's pretty helpful.

  • Siri is unique. And the reason for this is that Siri isn't just voice recognition.

  • Siri can actually understand language.

  • She knows how language is modeled and she can apply logic, and this makes her feel far more intelligent and human than anything else.

  • Now we know from things like ATMs that when machines are as reliable as humans we would rather use machines.

  • People are using Siri way more than Apple anticipated.

  • And Siri's learning every day which is making her smarter and smarter.

  • So if Apple opened Siri to third party developers, there is going to be a flood of new voice enabled applications.

  • Siri will help you buy things. Make your travel plans. Make phone calls for you.

  • She'll learn your preferences. Siri is really going to become a personal assistant, the beginning of actual artificial intelligence.

  • And this is a big deal.

  • I mean Eric Schmidt from Google claimed to the Senate Subcommittee on Competition Policy the biggest threat to Google is Siri.

  • Because one day you might stop using Google completely and ask her instead.

  • So keep an eye on Siri. She's going to turn some heads.
