Hi Luis, Siri is a step in the right direction. However there is still room for improvement since most, if not all, the processing is done in the cloud. In Part 2 of my article, I address the need for a hybrid model where some of the processing should be on-board and some in the cloud (depending on the complexity) to achieve the best user experience.-Alvin

I do think that the iPhones superiority is due to it touchscreen interface, but also to its graphics and the very smooth way its connected with the touchscreen. The GUI in the iphone always moves in synch with the users gestures over the screen. That part of intelligent interfaces is also very interesting. Remember the Ironman movie? Despite all the technology displayed in the suit I think the most important one and the most disruptive was the Speech Recognition of Tony Stark's helper. I think Siri is kind of getting close to that isn't it?
