Greg Joswiak said Apple's initial goal was to make Siri a "favorite machine". "We did not turn it into a quiz game," he said in an interview. "Apple wants Siri to be a friend who can help people do more.
Alex Acero and his team's goal is to make Siri sound more like a trustworthy person than a robot. Apple also wants to let people know what Siri can do and what can not be done, which is why iOS 11 contains Siri-centric features, such as cross-device synchronization and better understanding of user preferences and so on.
