THE Apple has released, without much fanfare, on the iOS virtual store a new application that aims to collect data on Siri’s personal assistant usage.
The tool is called Siri Speech Study and was only released in the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Ireland, Italy, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, India and New Zealand. To use the app, you must complete a term of use provided by the company and volunteer to participate in a series of tests.
Basically, the service is a way to receive criticism and suggestions from users in order to improve Siri’s personal assistant’s responses. Volunteers must report if she answered a question incorrectly, for example, or did not understand commands that were expected by the user. As the company itself will receive the reports directly, complaints registered in the channel must be prioritized.
Data from participants or about the devices themselves will not be shared with the company. So far, there is no information about a possible expansion of the tests to other languages and regions.
