When it comes to digital aides, it’s obvious that Siri could stand to be improved upon. Now according to investigates from Apple and Carnegie Mellon University’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute, they have recently published a newspaper that suggests that one of the ways these improvements could be made is by mapping out the office.
Mapping a apartment isn’t brand-new and “were having” seen it done by smart devices like robot vacuum cleaners and too Apple’s HomePod speaker. However, the paper suggests that this could also be done using digital helpers like Siri, where through a series of questions, Siri could get an idea of the announces that are being emitted around it in order to better understand user seeks while also being able to volunteer more accurate and relevant information.
For example, it could pick up on sounds like the microwave and buzzer, and when useds substantiate the seem, it would then be able to learn what those bangs are. So whenever the microwave is done and it beeps, a possible lotion is possible that Siri could then alert the user that whatever they were microwaving is now complete. Or if the doorbell sounds, Siri could then send an alert to the user to let them know that someone is at the door, even if they aren’t home( and acquiring there’s a smart-alecky device like the HomePod is there to pick up the tone ).
While the research chiefly mentions Siri and the HomePod, we imagine that this could also be applied to other smart designs and digital auxiliaries from the likes of Google or Amazon.
