Tera Thomas O’Brien looks at Apple’s growing problem with Siri:
Finally, there might be another reason why Siri and others have not taken over our lives. Such technology is expensive to create, maintain, integrate, and expand, and, there’s no other way to put this, there’s no money in it. Siri makes for a good bullet point on an ad, a great demonstration of voice recognition tied to actions, but it’s technology with more promise than delivery, despite some of Siri’s personality.
Voice controlled artificial intelligence might be the future interface but for now it’s merely interesting, occasionally useful, but more than a little oversold.
