There is nothing that that quite demonstrates the stupidity of people as clearly as Siri. By now everyone knows who Siri is. If you don’t then you have probably been living under a rock in the Iraqui desert. Just in case you just crawled out from under your rock, Siri is Apple’s attempt at creating a virtual assistant. You can ask her questions and she’ll attempt to answer them or you can tell her to do stuff like make a call.
The fact is she in unfortunately wholly incompetent and very, very fucking stupid. I mean, if this is our attempt at creating artificial intelligence we are completely fucked.
She fails even at the simplest task and it’s defiantly not because she doesn’t understand me. She’s just fucking stupid. I think you can probably write the commands she understands and the things she can do on three pages max. Supposedly, behind Siri is a huge supercomputer that can do all kinds of wonderful things and process billions of instructions per second. Sorry dudes, but I don’t experience that. As I said, she’s fucking dumb.
I asked her a few minutes ago why she stops recording a note in the middle of my sentence. She politely replied that she doesn’t know what I mean. Even though my sentence was quite clear and she interpreted everything I said correctly. She can’t answer a simple question which should be easy to program. Here’s the question and then voila, here’s the answer.
So why is Siri so stupid? Because the people that created her are stupid. You see, they can’t create anything smarter than they are. You don’t know what you don’t know and stupid people don’t know they’re stupid. They think they’ve created something awesome when in fact they have just completely destroyed evolution. We are going back in time.
Can someone please develop a decent virtual assistant that works. You have to save mankind!
