Apple's Siri is the Birth of Star Trek's Computer

Post by vinesh on Wed 5 Oct 2011 - 23:40

Announced today, the Siri functionality introduced in the iPhone 4S is the stuff of science fiction. Just watch the video above and tell me that isn't something that you would have seen just recently from a science fiction move or TV show.

While skeptics can say it's just a canned video, the early hands-on impressions from today say that it works pretty much as advertised. This is remarkable, and easily explains why Apple paid more than $200 million for the company behind this technology.

Apple's product progression is mirroring what we've seen for decades in Star Trek. There was the PADD, which is what we have today in the iPad and other tablets. Now we have Siri, which lets us query for information using natural language.

It seems like the day when robots (machines) would challenge humans isn't that far away.

If this invention is similar to what we had seen in Star Trek, then I guess most of the gadgets in science fiction movies will turn out to be real one day. For example, the car of the movie Back To The Future or even the robots of I, Robot. lol!

Well, it's just the start, I wonder what else is coming our way... Shocked

In my opinion, The Matrix is another example.

If I'm not mistaken, Isaac Asimov wrote a book on this matter but I can't remember the title.
