US tech giant and world’s number 1 smartphone maker, Apple, is reportedly working on Siri-powered speaker just like Amazon Echo — an artificial intelligence (AI)-based speaker that can be controlled by voice.
“The future goal of the technology is to utilise Siri as an ‘omnipresent AI assistant across devices’ rather than have a central hub,” reported appleinsider.com.
The Siri-controlled device would likely carry out the same tasks that the personal digital assistant already does on iPhones and iPads.
Earlier this week, Apple acquired Israel-based start-up “RealFace” that develops deep learning-based face authentication technology.
Set up in 2014 by Adi Eckhouse Barzilai and Aviv Mader, RealFace has developed facial recognition software that offers users a smart biometric login, aiming to make passwords redundant when accessing mobile devices or PCs, the Times of Israel reported.
