Siri (2011)

Siri, the intelligent personal-assistant software in Apple's iPhone 4S, interprets natural speech to answer questions, make recommendations and perform actions, such as sending messages and scheduling meetings. Based on 40 years of research funded by Darpa, Siri's natural language technology was snapped up by Apple in 2010 for use in iOS products.
