VIDEO: Siri Interrupts White House-Iran Nuke Deal Press Conference

Fact checked

Creepy or funny?  A sign of things to come or a sign of the incapabilities of modern artificial intelligence?  A Q+A White House session on the nuclear deal with Iran was interrupted when Siri began responding with a question of “her” own.  Watch the video below.

GeoBeats News reports:

Apple’s personal assistant, Siri, has been known to occasionally interject at inopportune times.

But her recent appearance at a White House press briefing offered an apparently welcome dose of levity. A member of the press corps was asking a question on the Iran nuclear deal when Siri got accidentally activated on someone’s device.

As the journalist attempted to finish up, Siri interrupted and said, “Sorry, I’m not sure what you want me to change.”

Most of the room, including White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, was sent into a brief fit of laughter. One woman noted amidst the wave of chuckles, “That was on time.” Well played, Siri.
