Apple to Improve SIRI via Speech Recognition Team in Boston

Some hiring has been going on in Boston, Massachusetts by Apple. The people happen to be those working on the SIRI team. The team members also worked for a Nuance according to Xconomy's recent report. It is Nuance’s voice recognition technology that is currently being used by SIRI. However, Nuance also lends its technology to Google and Samsung which are Apple’s competitors. There is a chance that the team at Boston may be working on Apple’s very own voice recognition technology project. This would then be the exclusive property of Apple. Apple’s office in Boston never attracted much attention until now when the efforts at producing this special technology got underway. While its headquarters are in Cupertino, California, Apple has its R&D departments sprawled throughout the Land of Opportunity.

The office Apple had opened up near MIT remained a mystery until now when the public got to know about it. SIRI meanwhile was purchased by Apple three years ago. It is not dependent on Nuance anymore though. The fact that a substitute for Nuance may be in the pipeline has set Nuance on edge. Apple is moving away from reliance to self-reliance. While the project is still under wraps and all this is hearsay, Apple seems to be in the mood for replacement. Former Nuance employee, Gunner Evermann and Chief Speech Scientist at SIRI, Larry Gillick are just two of the distinguished experts at Apple’s Boston office. Don McAllaster is another valuable member of the team and a previous employee of Nuance. The world is looking forward to the product they come up.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
