The Story of Siri, by its founder Adam Cheyer

18 Dec 2014 conference, community

Last month we hosted the LISTEN conference in San Francisco (full recap here). Adam Cheyer, cofounder of Siri, shared the fascinating story of the long journey that led to Siri. Today we are pleased to release the full video of Adam’s keynote.

Walking backward in time, Adam discussed the technical history of Siri as well as how the vision of virtual personal assistants evolved over time. He wowed the audience with a video from 1987 on a concept from Apple where predicted a Siri like device 24 years in the future and was only off by 2 weeks

Thanks again to Adam and all LISTEN participants, it was a wonderful day of learning and discovery.
