Siri es un cachondo. Bueno, más bien sus programadores lo son. Eso sí, hay que reconocer que resultan políticamente correctos y ante preguntas conflictivas, no se mojan ni media.
Para el que no sepa qué es Siri, se trata de un asistente virtual del sistema iOs (Apple), que realiza diferentes acciones ordenadas a través de la voz. Sin tocar el móvil, y solo hablándole al sistema, puede realizar llamadas a quién le ordenes, buscarte contenido en Internet, leerte o escribirte mails, programarte el despertador, y hasta escribirte un post en Facebook.
Esta aplicación, como un gran número de herramientas que utilizamos hoy en día, cuenta con un origen militar. Y es que Siri fue implementado inicialmente dentro del proyecto CALO (Calonis, siervo del soldado en latín) de la agencia del Departamento de Defensa DARPA. Un proyecto desarrollado por SRI International que combinaba diferentes técnicas de inteligencia artificial, aprendizaje automático (maching learning) y reconocimiento de voz, con el fin de clasificar información, realizar tareas rutinarias de acuerdo a las pautas marcadas, programar tareas y facilitar la comunicación entre individuos tanto en campo como en otros centros defensivos (aquí vídeo del sistema).
Finalmente, la herramienta pasó a buscar un uso civil desde 2007, hasta que el resultado fue vendido a Apple en 2010.
Poner a prueba su paciencia
El otro día quise poner a Siri a prueba, y por ello le toqué un poco las narices preguntándole estupideces para las que, en un gran número de ocasiones, dispone de respuestas ingeniosas, divertidas, o a veces algo no puestas al día… ¡Aquí una selección de las mejores!

Siri is a joker. Well, rather, its programmers are. Of course, we must recognize that they are politically correct and it seems they don´t want to get in trouble with conflict questions.
For those who do not know what Siri is, it is a virtual assistant of iOs system (Apple), that performs different actions ordered through the voice. Without touching the mobile, and just talking to the system, you can make calls to whom you order, search for content on the Internet, read or write emails, set the alarm, and even write a post on Facebook.
This application, like a great number of tools that we use today, has a military root. Siri was initially implemented within the project CALO (Calonis, soldier´s servant in Latin) of the agency of the Department of Defense DARPA. The project, developed by SRI International, combined different techniques of artificial intelligence, maching learning and voice recognition, in order to classify information, to perform and schedule routine tasks according to guidelines, and to facilitate communication among individuals, both in the field and in other defensive centers (here video of the system).
Finally, the tool went on to look for a civilian use since 2007, until the result was sold to Apple in 2010.
Testing its patience
The other day I wanted to test Siri´s patience, and for that reason I got up its nose by asking it stupid things for which, on a great number of occasions, he has witty, funny, or sometimes not up-to-date answers … Here a selection of the best!
