Hey Siri, Share Some Tips and Tricks

...

There is the disembodied artificial intelligences of the movies—like JARVIS (turned Vision), HAL, and Her—that can talk and emote with the best of them. Then there is the AI of our real future (maybe), like IBM's Watson, the newly introduced Viv, or Google's rumored Amazon Echo competitor.

But for now we have weird little text-only chatbots, audio-assistant bots personified by Cortana in Windows, Alexa in Amazon Echo, and, of course, Siri on Apple's iOS.

Siri—co-founded by the guy behind Viv before Apple bought it in 2010 for $200 million—is the most venerable of the digital assistants. That implies respect for its age and wisdom, but Siri remains a work in progress despite existing on billions of devices. That's because many of us have yet to master talking to our phones or tablets without feeling the fool; moreso because there are lots of ways to use Siri that many people haven't even considered.

In the five years Siri's been around, she's come a long way. (I use "her" or "she" pronouns only because that's the default voice gender most users know, even though male versions are available; feel free to imagine the voices as non-CIS as desired.) Wondering what the voice-enabled assistant with the touch-screen interface is capable of these days? Read on to find out.
