Apple Fires Back Against Siri Class-action Suits

they sure do act like it's AI though....most people believe it too
I think that Apple practices a disciplined product development arc that is addresses all aspects- User Interface, Industrial Design, quality of hardware and software, identifying and meeting user needs and future desires, and solid technology to pull it all together.
I also think that many manufacturers just insert new technology and features without taking a holistic approach. Those devices, in my opinion, do not make Apple products obsolete by any stretch of the imagination. Others will disagree.
I am not aware that Apple has claimed that Siri is AI. If you have an example of Apple doing so I would appreciate seeing it. Apple is trying to deliver what I call "the illusion of true second person presence" which for some of us has been the holy grail for User Interfaces since the 80s. Technology is finally catching up to some of those dreams. Siri is an early step and hopefully Google's new search paradigm will move us farther along the path as well.
Another question is this, at what point does it become AI? When it becomes self aware? Or, when it is able to anticipate a problem and find solutions while at the same time anticipating the "butterfly effect" of those solutions.
These are exciting times.

SCREW crAPPLE - America's worst business, least tax paying, most outsourcing, POS company.
Oh ya, you forgot to mention the most succesful and valuable company in America, and while you're at it, the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the world. Guess those slipped your mind...
