Apple, glitter & joy

[exif id="35388"]

The whole artificial intelligence thing is, in my opinion, utter shite. From my experience, we’ve put too much faith in these algorithms. At this point in history it’s all hype. Fucking rubbish. It’s not artificial intelligence. It’s real stupidity. Have you used Siri? It’s shit with perfume to mask the odour.

The reliance on this type of shit AI is fucking dangerous.

Please! Do me a favour Apple, Google, IBM, et al. Under promise. Over deliver. You’re doing the opposite.

    Apple had Siri out longer than Alexa, Google and Cortana but didn’t put adequate ongoing R&D into it. Now Alexa and Google have surpassed it, with Cortana closing in. With all the money they have there is little excuse. Apple is in danger of becoming like Microsoft was in the 1990s.

    1. Yep.

      These sort of glaring inconsistencies are almost as bad as universal failures. The big problem Apple faces with Siri is that when people encounter these problems, they stop trying. It feels like you’re wasting your time, and makes you feel silly or even foolish for having tried. I worry that even if Apple improves Siri significantly, people will never know it because they won’t bother trying because they were burned so many times before. In addition to the engineering hurdles to actually make Siri much better, Apple also has to overcome a “boy who cried wolf” credibility problem. Daring Fireball
