Now a small team of engineers at a stealth startup called Viv Labs claims to be on the verge of realizing an advanced form of AI that removes those limitations. Whereas Siri can only perform tasks that Apple engineers explicitly implement, this new program, they say, will be able to teach itself, giving it almost limitless capabilities. In time, they assert, their creation will be able to use your personal preferences and a near-infinite web of connections to answer almost any query and perform almost any function.

1956 prägte der amerikanisch Informatiker John McCarthy den Begriff Artificial Intelligence (Künstliche Intelligenz). Das war auch der Startpunkt intensiver Forschungen und Auseinandersetzung mit diesem Thema. Jetzt – knapp 60 Jahre später  – glauben die Eltern von Siri einen wichtigen Meilenstein passieren zu können.
