News For Top Stocks: Siri For Mac Launched by Apple (NASDAQ AAPL)

AAPL NASDAQ AAPL Apple

Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL)’s Siri voice assistant technology is one of the company’s key products found exclusively in iOS. Late last year, the iPhone maker’s large 92-page patent application was published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Apple patent offers details of Siri application for Mac computers with useful features to transform experience.

While Apple’s Siri has been an iOS staple since 2011, the tech has yet to make the jump to OS X. An exhaustive new patent filing, however, details a very similar desktop version of the virtual assistant that can perform dictation, high-level system commands and even act as a “third hand” for Mac users.

The technology is described as something that goes beyond the current voice feature for Mac computers and makes it more like Siri. The current desktop version has the ability to process natural speech and text input for completing tasks. This makes it a lot like the current Siri for iOS. Apple will likely take the desktop version further as commands will be taken into context based on user intent. This mean the desktop version will utilize speech recognition to figure out and memorize contextual clues.

Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL): Siri For Mac

As published by the U.S. patent and Trademark Office on Thursday, Apple’s massive 92-page patent application for an “Intelligent digital assistant in a desktop environment” describes a technology that goes far beyond Mac’s current voice dictation feature, and can easily be considered a “Siri for Mac.”

Like the current iteration of Siri, limited to iOS, Apple’s desktop version is able to process natural speech and text input to perform actions like completing tasks, inputting and retrieving data, conducting searches and more. Further, the filing points out that commands are to be taken in context based on deduced user intent. In other words, Siri for desktop will use speech recognition to decipher and remembering contextual clues.
