A new job listing on Apple's online career portal details what the company envisions for the future of Siri. As 9to5Mac reports, the details of the employment opportunity reveal Apple's desire to turn Siri into a more well-rounded virtual character, adding more dialog and refreshing Siri's current responses.
"We're looking for a uniquely creative individual to help us evolve and enrich Siri, our virtual personal assistant," the listing reads. "Siri's known for 'her' wit, cultural knowledge and zeal to explain things in engaging, funny and practical ways. The ideal candidate is someone who combines a love for language, wordplay and conversation with demonstrated experience in bringing creative content to life within an intense technical environment."
Siri's quirky responses to random questions are already well-documented, but if you've already worn out her wit, it appears we won't have to wait long for some snarky new banter.
