She also obviously didn't count on competition from Google, Amazon and other tech giants.</p> <p>The original configuration of servers that support Siri, was designed to be easy to add new capacity. Because they lacked initially, the first few years users complained of bugs, and lengthy processing issues.</p> <p>Over time, infrastructure servers, Siri has become much more effective. One of the Apple employees were able to optimize the code of a particular component of the system to such an extent that instead of 500 servers this component was to use just 5.</p> <p><img src="" /></p> <p>Another important milestone in the development of Siri has become 2015 a year after Amazon released the smart column with support Alexa. At the time Apple was preparing to release HomePod, but was not going to include column support Siri.

We continue to deeply invest in machine learning and artificial intelligence to continuously improve the quality of the responses Siri and the coverage of topics that she can handle.</p></blockquote> <p><img src="" /></p> <p>In 2017, Craig Federighi <a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank"> has taken the lead</a> over Siri, maybe it will help the personal assistant of Apple to cope with its <a>terribly annoying flaws</a> and become a worthy rival to the Amazon Echo and Google Assistant.</p>  <p>Follow the news of the Apple in our <a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">Telegram channel</a>, as well as in the app <a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">on iOS MacDigger</a>.</p> ]]&gt; <p>Join us at <a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, <a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">Vkontakte</a>, <a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">Facebook</a>, <a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">Google+</a> or via RSS, to keep abreast of the latest news from the world of Apple, Microsoft and Google. </p> ]]&gt;<a href="">Original Article</a>
