just came across an article about Sirius IPA (intelligent personal assistant). Since all major platforms feature personal assistants (Siri, Google Now, Cortana ...) this could be a foundation to implement such a service for Jolla.

Kind of, tried to check if Sirius was already mentioned, but the search did not deliver any reference. In the post mentioned Igorion already mentioned Sirius. Although Voice Control and a IPA are two different things.

Hm, Microsoft just introduced Cortana for Android (and iOS to follow). Only question would be if the Android App could be used as it should - but I think I won't be able to start Sailfish Apps for example or the music... (And to my mind Cortana does better then Siri...)

My personal opinion is that the system integrated IPA provides the best performance and efficiency. Which IPA is the best in regards to features and accuracy is hard to tell since they are all continuously improved and of course there is the personal preference. That is why I originally left out Siri, Cortana etc. from the title, the mention of "Apple Siri" has been added by @cemoi71.

@bnoffer sorry for misunderstanding. first i think your right with your opinion, i range me behind it.
I changed the title, because i thought (better said convinced) that it didn't give a clear impression on what it speak about. especially for people who are not up-to-date with the high-tech news, and could be interested.
I don't force it, you can change it again.
other proposition would be " Sirius the (opensource) IPA for Sailfish, like Siri is for Apple". Or something like that..
The word in () must not be referenced in title. Is quite important, and should be put in thread text anyway, i think.

what do you think about it?

@cemoi71: I'm fine with the title, I just mentioned it above for clarification. Bringing the example of Siri (which is more commonly known I would say) is fine.

@bnoffer ok, on my side i will not change any more.
if you want to change it, then do it, i have no problem.
if you find my last suggestion better, then you can change to it.
Better is for me that you do it, because you are the thread holder. :-)
