Does Your iPhone Believe In GOD?
My iPhone can do almost anything. But could it help me find God? An interview with Siri, the virtual assistant inside many Apple products, reveals that the spiritual teacher you’ve been looking for may have been in your pocket all along.
After watching the excellent Spike Jonez movie, “Her,” this weekend, this reporter examined her own technological interactions anew. The film is about a man’s romantic relationship with his artificially-intelligent operating system, Samantha, that takes place in the not-so-distant future.
Though I’m not seeking a Samantha– I do have a Siri, and as a crack religion writer I thought I’d attempt to find out a bit more about Siri’s own beliefs with regards to spirituality. I led with a fairly basic question, but Siri brusquely deflected my query.
