Ever since Apple announced Siri, the voice control assistant, on iPhone 4S event. We are curious about how well it works. Will it work as advertised? Macworld’s Jason Snell records a 12 minutes video to demo the Siri technology in details.
My two cents
Siri definitely works better than I expected. The error rate is low, according to the video. (Well, Siri think iPhone 4S as “iPhone 4 ass” in speech-to-text demo.)
Note that the Siri’s information about restaurant, cinema, shops are pulled from Yelp. Siri most probably can’t give you recommendation outside supported countries. Siri also use Wolfram Alpha database for complex calculations, world’s facts, data, etc.
Now, the ultimate question: Will Siri works with our non-US/UK accent or not?
