Nuance CEO Paul Ricci confirms that Apple uses Nuance technology in Siri, its virtual assistant, in an interview at the D11: All Things Digital conference.

Nuance, a leader in speech recognition, has been involved with Siri since before it was acquired by Apple. While it doesn’t power Google’s stock Android speech recognition, it is behind Samsung’s S Voice and virtual assistant technology on HTC devices. It also works with Amazon and, Ricci confirmed, Nuance still works with Apple.

“We’re a fundamental provider for Apple,” Ricci said.

Ricci also commented on the future of virtual assistants saying, "I think we will see virtual assistants within two years that are quite robust. I also believe that within two years we will see that virtual assistants will work across platforms."
