lonelysandwich - Human-computer-human interaction

"From Siri's acceptance or rejection of our commands or requests, comes a feedback loop that trains us to constrain our thoughts to the crucial data.
As we learn to speak to Siri, we'll learn more about how we formulate ideas into words, how to express those so that they may be understood with less margin of error, ultimately shortening the gap between intention and comprehension.
It's safe to assume that as we learn to talk to Siri, Siri learns to listen to us. So we're not simply assimilating with the robot culture, we're fostering a new understanding between our vastly different types of intelligence.
Which is to say, Siri will teach us how to talk to Siri but maybe more importantly, how to talk to each other."
