In a statement to FOX26 News on Tuesday, Apple apologized and said "Siri misinterpreted the query as users wanting to report terrorist activity to police."

To which Siri replied: "Did I stutter?"

members of law enforcement expressed their outrage

Why? Wouldn't terrorists be found in jail? What else could spark your outrage, unless of course the first thing you thought was that Siri was implying police are terrorists. What ever would cause you to assume that, hmmm?
 
2020-09-24 12:53:21 PM  
Wouldn't you want Siri to direct you to law enforcement? I mean unless the cops aren't planning on actually protecting people....

That's spooky. AI is getting way too good these days at recognizing patterns and relationships, we need to look into regulating it.

Nah. Make your shiat better and maybe I'll read you page, Sinclair.  Maybe.

Since this is a Sinclair news story, we can expect it's fabricated and completely retracted in a correction?

Its not even that. This article is about pearl-clutching and overreacting.

As someone who used to work in SEO, these stories continue to crack me up.

For example, here Siri extracted "Kings County find terrorists" and returned an article about finding terrorists in Kings County. It's hard to say what a "correct" answer is when dealing with search results, but this seems a decent result.

It's not a conspiracy, it's just an edge case, haha.

Gotta love the IT guy that did that one......

/cop couldn't figure out the difference between a service to direct you to a person to report terrorism or where the terrorists actually are...

New technology experiences been set by the movies and comic books, and usually well after the new tech has been perfected.

I don't recall any plot lines addressing how many Wayne Enterprises test subjects were maimed or killed testing shark or whale repellent. Remember that time where Alfred had to restart the Batcomputer?  We all know how that ended: with Keaton wearing the suit.  What a horrible period in Gotham's history.
 
2020-09-24 1:05:48 PM  
LOL, hey, that's just what the algorithm provided. You know, like on Facebook or Twatter or YouTube, when people want to know about the "deep state," they're served up some shiatty Q moron's video.

This.  Its conservatives with their fragility.  Just like when you ask about best way to commit suicide it directs you to hospital.  This is just saying report it to the authorities.

So all this is, is them crying.

Someone says something racist that probably wasn't an accident: "LOL, u libs think everything is racist!"

Something like this that's pretty clearly an accident: "THIS IS AN OUTRAAAAAGE!!!"

You'd think so, but when you ask Siri where the klan meeting is, you get the same result.
 
2020-09-24 1:18:58 PM  
She should have responded "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500".  Is this considered doxxing?

I still tell her to open the pod bay doors.
 
2020-09-24 1:21:19 PM  
I guess I never realized what a bunch of whiny farking children cops are. Their PR would suggest otherwise, but the more they speak/write publicly, the worse they look.

I don't know any cops personally, so my image of them comes mostly from TV and movie portrayals and the appearance of police on local news, explaining some event or incident or whatnot.

Voice recognition software, generally speaking, doesn't fully understand what you say and the nuance in your sentences. It's just picking out keywords and acting on them.
 
2020-09-24 1:23:58 PM  
The thing is, what did the guy expect Siri to say?  Did he expect her to direct him to the Khandahar Rock N Bowl or Ahmed's House of Anthrax or something?

Just people exercising their right to invest in broadcast stations across the US.

Like Adelson buying the Las Vegas Review Journal.  Or Bezos buying the WaPo.  Its just more free market consolidation.

I don't think Bezos is part of an end-times evangelical cult that uses his news outlets to push paranoia, xenophobia, and end times viewpoints.

Anyone can buy in.  There is only one test to get it - do you have enough money?

Of course, these would be the same assholes demonizing "Cancel Culture" and "Oh PC culture is killing everything..." Meanwhile they ACTIVELY support, condone and outright assist white supremacists and alt-right militias... hmmm If it quacks like a F'n duck my friend.

ACAB!

I asked Siri if she listens on my private messages and reports them to the government and she said "no, sir, you aren't important enough".

They're hardly the only concentrated economic power that is extremely dangerous to this democracy.

Portland Police Bureau has been doing this openly for the last four years with no repercussions to the people caught - it even spurred an FBI Anti-terrorism inquiry into the department in 2018
