The MacVoices Live! panel of David Ginsburg, Frank Petrie, Jeff Gamet, Patrice Brend’amour, and Jim Rea continued the discussion of Siri, comparing and contrasting its usefulness and accuracy to other smart home assistants. Drawing from science fiction, the group talked about what they would like Siri to be and whether that is or is not realistic. Is Siri good enough to support Apple’s Music Voice Plan? The panel shared how they summon music using Siri, and the varying results. (Part 2)
