[Tencent Editor] There are rumors that Apple is developing intelligent speaker Siri. To compete with the Google Home and Amazon Echo, which has dominated the market, Apple Siri needs to innovate in three areas. The following content from foreign websites computerworld.com, compiled by Tencent technology.
To beat Amazon Echo and Google Home, Apple Siri speakers need to become more intelligent.
And Kerry "(Kleenex)" and "Google" ralph lauren pas cher, "and" the same, "the name of" people "is already familiar with the people. However, this iconic brand may someday become obsolete.
If the rumors about the Apple Siri speakers are true, then this day may be faster than any of us can imagine.
As a smart speaker, Siri can play music, can also talk with the user, similar to Amazon Echo or Google Home. This means that we can use the voice of the NBA playoff game scores or weather forecasts.
However, if the Siri speaker to replace the phone, it needs to provide the function is not just the basic voice function. (Also need to point out that our home, office, car and other places need a Siri speaker, a lot of time we also want a cell phone to play games, chat with their families to chat or send an e-mail on the plane. And, anyway, there are some hardcore factions that will not give up the phone anyway in the short term.
Smart speakers can handle home automation, but also tell the user when to have a date, or when the user needs to cross the city to participate in a meeting for the user called the car. The current iPhone has a voice assistant Siri, but the user's phone is not always around, and sometimes the phone will be no electricity.
Interestingly, there are rumors that Apple may be in the next month's WWDC release Siri speaker. Unlike Echo, Siri will have a screen, which means it can handle Skype calls and can view photos.
It also needs the following three innovations:
1. Make the call easier
We have a smartphone, but I know there are a few people in the millennial who almost never call. They are sending text messages all day, and they may make a phone call every week. In the living room, if the user can quickly call, you can save time. For example, you can say to Siri: "Hey Siri, find home appliance repair personnel, call him. "This is much faster than using Google's browser to inquire about home appliance repairers, and it's much faster than finding phone numbers in mobile phone contacts." However, Siri Voice Assistant is still unable to do this. So Siri speakers need to be more intelligent.
2. Make a real conversation with the user
In fact, Siri voice assistant is stupid. It does not really interact with you, and we now know the best dialogue robot is Google Home on the Assistant. You can ask "who is Stephen & middot; Curry (Steph Curry) & rdquo; this question, and then asked" when he was born & rdquo; Echo or Siri is still not as good as Assistant. Apple should make Siri more intelligent, so that he can communicate with the user a wider range of topics. This is important because smart speakers will be an important part of people's lives.
3. Summarize the user's e-mail
Siri allows users to send text messages in an oral way, but I'm not interested in this feature. I really want it to do is sum up the text messages and e-mails I received, and i just need to reply to these messages on my laptop. After a frequent interaction with me, the robot should know which information is important to me, for example, the boss needs me to call her now. I hope Siri will let me know all the important information. Also, it should also be able to make simple summaries for less important e-mails, set reminders, ignore spam.
