Siri's original creators are launching a Siri killer

Culture
[SOUND] If you've ever used Siri or any other voice assistant, you know that the usefulness of them is pretty limited. So the original creators of Siri want to fix that. Viv is a virtual assistant with the kind of artificial intelligence a lot of the current [INAUDIBLE] Are missing. For instance, if you wanted to order a pizza, we could handle all of the ordering for you. And it can get into the details like toppings and pizza size all without ever going to another app or calling Domino. And unlike many of the current assistance you ask different questions in a variety of ways. That means you can talk to it more like a human and less like a robot. Viv is taking a cue from amazon alexa and already works a lot of 3rd party services like uber, grub hub and seat guru. The only question is when we'll actually be able to try it. Right now now, you can't download it or buy it and [UNKNOWN] creators have not yet decided if they will run it themselves or sell it to another company. In the meantime, if you want to get a pizza, you are going to have to pick up the phone. [SOUND]
