    I just saw this new program that came out for the iPhone. It's called Siri.

    Here's a description from their website:

    They are apparently working on an android app. I can't wait to try it.

    Here's the link to an article about it, which also contains the video.

    its an artificial intelligence project the government has - most likely a much simpler version of theirs. they may be doing the same thing google is with their 'voice' service....make it free and use all of us to help it learn, because there's no better teacher than the world. i'll be looking for the android version as well.

    That seems like a really interesting idea. I wonder how many other apps you have to have to make it work though. Like the one for making reservations, etc. Will it run as a stand alone with all of them built in, or will you have to have a separate one for each function?

    Well, Apple bought Siri (yes, the entire company) for the sole purpose of defeating competition.
    They will now be able to claim this technology as their own, and they will NOT be making an Android version.
    Fugging sellouts...

    They just join the Android users who have been able to do this for the last 12 months now.

    ok..they raised the bar... on voice interaction...

    voice interaction.. which was great when I first got my android phone...
    but died down for me..
    but it does come in handy from time to time .. when driving...

    with a better interface/ interpretation engine and interaction... it should be more helpful.

    Probably I've found with most of these voice recognition things, unless one has American CNN type dialect, they never work properly.

    I would use siri just about as much as I do 3D on my Thrill. Almost never!

    I've heard about one of these services, that it wasn't actually computer voice recognition, that it was being done by people. Low cost labour in third world countries, they're paid to transcribe the speech into text. Like a sort of Mechanical Turk type thing.

    I wonder if the same sort of thing is going on with things like Siri, to get the voice recognition to cope with many different dialects.

    I've tried using some PC based voice recognition software in the past, things like Dragon, and they've been absolutely hopeless, even after supposedly training them. My UK bank uses voice recognition for its telephone banking service, this is almost perfect, however it's only got to recognise numbers and letters, a very limited vocabulary.
