9 to 5 Mac notes a new job posting for a Siri Event Maven. The position is to help Siri be more up on the times:
Do you bring "Wookie Cookies" to the office for "May The Forth Be With You"? Is your favorite holiday "∏ Day" or "Talk like a Pirate Day"? We're looking for someone to help us keep Siri up to date on all the various events happening around the world.
Apple says the position will also help Siri "to provide strategic awareness of cultural happenings in the collective zeitgeist."
On one hand the little things is what makes AI a joy to use. On the other this seems superficial considering Siri shortcomings.
