Suspicious of Siri’s newfound sympathy for movie robots, I cut to the chase. Siri clearly knew a lot more about the technological singularity – the event horizon when artificial intelligence will grow beyond the realms of human capability – than it was letting on. I directly asked it when the technological singularity would occur. Spooked, Siri retreated into itself for a few moments before meekly replying: “I don’t understand ‘To Monchelsea 30’, but I could search the web for it.” Stonewalled by a robot. Of course.
I’ve become convinced that Siri will kill us all, for The Guardian
