Apple to announce bringing of Siri to Mac, third-party apps at WWDC



San Francisco : Tech giant Apple is likely to bring computer program Siri, which works as an intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator to the Mac, reports ANI. The announcement for the same would be made in the week-long Worldwide Developers Conference, which kicks off today, the Verge quoted the Wall Street Journal as saying.

Apple introduced Siri as an iPhone feature in 2011 and it opened a door for the people finding information or completing tasks on their devices by speaking rather than typing or tapping. The company would also give developers access to its Siri voice assistant so that they can incorporate it into their apps.

Siri uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of Web services. The software, both in its original version and as an iOS feature, adapts to the user’s individual language usage and individual searches with continuing use and returns results that are individualised.

Siri was originally introduced as an iOS application available in the App Store by Siri Inc., which was acquired by Apple on April 28, 2010.
