Apple today announced a new voice-controlled application for the iPhone 4S called Siri: the intelligent assistant. According to Apple, Siri understands contextual directions, such as asking the device to set up an alert, or to check the weather, or to find out the time in Paris. The software uses voice recognition and a form of artificial intelligence to translate and process questions that it is asked. It then returns results or takes actions, depending on the request. The software can read back notifications or calendar appointments aloud without requiring the user to press any buttons. The software works with built-in iOS apps, and supports English, French, and German to start. Apple is calling Siri a beta product for now.
