The iPhone announcement nowadays appears in the beginning sight for brand spanking new gadgets to head. A brand new iPhone with higher specs and perhaps a price range version, we all know the trick via now. However, on October four can be a historical date: the technology of synthetic intelligence since the cellphone has arrived. The beginning of a revolution "World changing Event" . That it is not just pie in the sky is clear from the interview 9to5mac had the co-founder of Siri, the company that Apple acquired 200 million.
That acquisition had less to do with the search technology and speech recognition Siri, said Steve Jobs, but it was the artificial intelligence of the company.
Siri has a so-called Virtual Personal Assistant (VPA) developed. It's a new way of interacting on the Internet. Instead of following links in search results, we a conversation. Currently, it sounds perhaps a little vague, but if Apple's marketing machine like crazy is left is a story that you feel.

Winarsky is not modest in his expectations:
The PAL (Personal Assistant software) will get things done, and this is only the tip of the iceberg. We're talking another technology revolution. A new computing paradigm shift.
A new computer revolution is coming …
