According to a new patent granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Tuesday, Siri might get smarter. It seems that Apple is working on a method that would allow Siri to recognize the people addressing her. Additionally, Siri would apparently be able to not only personalize its answers while talking to several different people, but to also know the lines it shouldn’t cross with them individually.
Profiles would be generated based on a “voice print”, and the voice assistant would know what tasks it can perform depending on the profile addressing her. Asking Siri to read out messages would only have an effect if the assigned profile has the right to ask that.
