Apple planning to expand Siri based on 12 new job postings

Apple lists 12 new positions on its Siri development team, could see a Siri expansion into OSX

A while back I reported on Apple posting a Siri based job that expressly required OSX development, which I thought might lead to integration of Siri into OSX. Over the weekend, Apple listed 12 new Siri based jobs that lend further credit to my prediction that Siri is coming to Mac devices.




The list consist of mostly software engineers who will be charged with "helping invent new techniques for conversational interaction, and building practices, processes, and standards that will become a foundation for design and innovation far into the future."


Other Siri job listings include Runtime Engineer, Hadoop Engineer, Monitoring Architect, Integration Engineer, Build / Release engineer and a pair of Data related Software Engineering positions. Of course Apple is keeping silent on if Siri will make an appearance on OSX. Another safe bet is that the company is working hard on integrating Siri with the less powerful hardware of the cheaper iPhone expected to release later this year.
