Apple is looking to expand Siri’s conversational skills and features according to a new job posting
Apple is seeking some fresh blood to help improve Siri. A job advertisement appeared on the business orientated social networking site LinkedIn yesterday seeking an individual who can help evolve and enrich Siri, Apple’s personal digital assistant.
We’re looking for a uniquely creative individual to help us evolve and enrich Siri, our virtual personal assistant. Siri’s known for ‘her’ wit, cultural knowledge, and zeal to explain things in engaging, funny, and practical ways. The ideal candidate is someone who combines a love for language, wordplay, and conversation with demonstrated experience in bringing creative content to life within an intense technical environment.
Siri has been a huge success since its launch alongside the iPhone 4S; however there is still room for a lot of improvements. It is far too common for Siri to not understand what you have said or just not respond at all and that leads to a frustrating user experience. Siri has a huge future, there is no doubt about that but it needs to improve dramatically. It is good to see that Apple is looking for creative people to help steer Siri in the right direction. If you fancy applying for the position you can find all the information at Linkedin.
