Siri is here. Can I get a response?
Yesterday I gave a presentation to about 40 educational leaders in Korea representing all the various provinces and other organizations. The topic focused on English education and mobile devices. One thing that I pointed out was that responsive artificial intelligence has finally arrived in a form that can be used by anyone and that the impact could be helpful for English language learners. Dragon Dictation has been well-received and very helpful on Apple’s iOS platform (and others), but it doesn’t respond to you intelligently. It only dictates what you speak. Now, with Siri… there’s a response.
I can imagine that in the future that artificial intelligence will be applied in many different ways. Imagine reading a digital book where you can have a conversation with the main characters and even give input to what actions they take.
