Project Brief Description:
FILM:
The artificial intelligence system, HAL 9000, portrayed in the film controlled the operation of the space vessel on a mission to Jupiter. While seemingly just as intelligent as humans, HAL also displays human emotional qualities in its interactions with astronauts. Such a machine, the director Stanley Kubrick said, would eventually manifest human mental disorders as well, such as a nervous breakdown—as HAL did in the film believing that the humans it serves are sabotaging the mission.
TECHNOLOGY:
Siri is branded as a personal assistant application for iOS operating system for Apple iphone 4s. The application uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of web services. Siri claims that the software adapts to the user's individual preferences over time and personalizes results, as well as accomplishing tasks such as making dinner reservations and reserving a cab
