This is awesomely ambitious. I'm impressed.

Been using it on my mobile devices for years -- combines Google with Wikipedia with a calculator with a bunch of scientific references. Not quite so easy to use as the original sources but still plenty impressive.

Samsung is using it for its "S Voice" whatever that is.

If you ask Siri anything technical/scientific ("Hey Siri, what's the orbital velocity of Neptune?"  "Hey Siri, what's the largest ship ever floated?"  "Hey Siri, what's the average daytime temperature on Mars?") she'll invariably come back with an answer from Wolfram.

5.43km/sec, The Prelude and -80° F (down to -195° F during winter at the poles) by the way.

I haven't enable S Voice, just as I never enabled Siri on the iPhone.
Yeah, I know.

We use Siri mostly in bed.

"Hey Siri, is Tom Smothers still alive?"

"Hey Siri, what time is the football game on?"

"Hey Siri, what's the best position for sex after 60?"
