So I switched out my android phone for a smartphone with Siri (voice activation) so the format of the phone has the time of day on the top status bar and it is too small for me to read and there seems to be no way for me to move it somewhere else and enlarge the text.

Anyway, I wake up in the middle of the morning and ask Siri what time is it. It replies 5:02 a.m. and then added "You woke me up". blink.gif

Is this a normal function of this technology?

I'm not really certain - not an Apple fan for a number of reasons.
I prefer a stock Android I can root, hack and remove Google in all forms.
Android is a Linux variant, you can make it do whatever you want if you know your way around.
Any apps I need for the phone come from F-Droid or the usual suspects.
Windows 10 has Cortana, Redmond's answer to Siri. I turned that poop off with a registry hack. Everything you say is sent to Microsft servers, same with Siri, only Apple gets it.

It is all very new and strange to me that a voice activated search/information service should make additional comments.

It's AI to a degree.

It went from a rules-based system to machine learning and voice recognition.

When Apple started using machine learning, they saw a dramatic improvement in Siri’s speech recognition, especially accents, the company said. Also vastly improved was Siri’s ability to understand speech in the presence of background noise.

Even so, Siri suffers from the same issue as most other voice assistants: It can’t hold a conversation. Yes, Apple spends lot of time building personality (ask Siri if it's AI and it'll respond, “Sorry, I’ve been advised not to discuss my existential existence.”) and cultural intelligence into the AI, and Siri can fake it — to a point. Ask Siri if you need an umbrella today and it'll give you the weather forecast and if you immediately ask her “What about tomorrow?" It'll know you’re still talking about the weather and possibility of rain and give the right response. Context-wise, it’s impressive, but Siri still falls far short of the give-and-take necessary for an actual conversation.

It makes me wonder if people that are isolated within society and have only AI to interact with, will this further deepen their isolation from other humans, or perhaps cause new kinds of psychoses?

All I know is, is that Siri told me that I woke it up, when it cannot sleep, and that's just weird.
