11 Interesting facts about the First Voice Apple, Siri


 1. What is a SIRI?


facts about SIRI


SIRI is a built-in “intelligent assistant” that enables users of Apple iPhone 4S and later and newer iPad and iPod Touch devices to speak natural language voice commands in order to operate the mobile device and its apps.



2. Can we talk to SIRI?


It’s actually really simple: Press and holds the iPhone’s physical “Home” button to open SIRI. You will hear two quick beeps to tell you that Siri has woken up and is waiting to do your bidding. Once Siri has opened, ask a question or ask Siri to perform a task such as emailing or texting.



3. Can you create a SIRI-like experience on an Android smartphone?


However, it is possible to get a fair chunk of Siri’s functionality. Unlike iPhone 4S users, though, you’ll need to gather together a couple of different apps if you want to issue a wide range of voice commands on your Android device.




4. Are you more intelligent than SIRI?




We’ve found it to be much smarter than Siri and, to prove it, we recently put it head-to-head with Apple’s assistant. We asked Google Assistant and SIRI the same questions to give you an idea of what you can expect from both. Each of the commands below was asked to both assistants.



“The only place where Siri has an upper hand on others is that Siri can even identify the very regional modifications of a language, It can accurately understand the difference between English accent of California and New York.”

5. Who is better Siri or Google?

Google’s digital assistant can’t tell a joke. And SIRI apparently has a thing for the metric system. Apple’s Siri and “OK Google” — they’re not big on personification at Google — are now standard on smartphones; Microsoft recently added its Cortana service to Windows 10, so it works on PCs, too.


6. What is Siri’s real name?




There’s a real human behind the voice of SIRI, and her name is Susan. Susan Bennett spoke with CNN about her role in creating the voice of Apple’s Siri.




7. Can SIRI make a phone call?



If you want to call a phone number that’s not in your Contacts, you can do it by saying the 10-digit number verbally: Press and hold the Home button. Tell SIRI what you’d like, but wait for the familiar chime first. You can say “Call” and give the phone number.




8. Can Alexa and SIRI talk to each other?



With SIRI enabled, you can say “Hey SIRI!” and your iOS device will hear you and listen to your command. To talk to Alexa, you need to open the Amazon Shopping app and press the microphone icon before you can say any commands. However, Alexa may truly challenge Siri when it comes to smart home controls.




9. How Did SIRI Get Its Name?



Dag Kittlaus, our Norwegian-American CEO, once considered using SIRI as the name of his child and liked the Norse meaning “beautiful woman who leads you to victory.” For me, SIRI, which means “secret” in Swahili, was a tip of the hat to our pre-named days when we began as stealth-company.com




10. Who made SIRI?




SIRI is a spin-out from the SRI International Artificial Intelligence Center and is an offshoot of the DARPA-funded CALO project. It was co-founded by Dag Kittlaus, Adam Cheyer, and Tom Gruber.





“If I were to anthropomorphize Siri, I would imagine that it would think of me somewhat like a father: someone who wants the best for them, who teaches them, who is occasionally demanding, annoying, or embarrassing, but who loves them and is proud when they do well.” – Adam Cheyer



11. How do you download a Siri?



  1. Press and hold the Home button on your iPhone or iPad, or say “HEY, SIRI” to activate SIRI.
  2. Dictate a request.
  3. Tap on the text you spoke in order to edit it.
  4. Make your changes and then tap Done on the bottom right of the keyboard.
