Siri™. Your personal assistant, always on board.

Apple's Siri™ (Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface) software recognises and processes natural speech and performs the function of a personal assistant. The spoken input data is transferred via an internet connection to an Apple server where it is processed, and the results are passed back to the end device. The software can act as a personal assistant, providing answers the user's questions or performing tasks that would otherwise require manual input.
