Siri co-founders Dag Kittlaus and Adam Cheyer debuted their new artificial intelligence assistant 'Viv' today at TechCrunch Disrupt NY.

Viv is an artificial intelligence platform that enables developers to distribute their products through an intelligent, conversational interface. It’s the simplest way for the world to interact with devices, services and things everywhere. Viv is taught by the world, knows more than it is taught, and learns every day.

Viv aims to be more personal than previous personal assistants and features a developer platform which will allow it to integrate with additional services. It's already had acquisition offers from Google and Facebook, according to the Washington Post.

“It’s about taking the way that humans have naturally interacted with each other for thousands of years and applying that to the way they interact with services,” said Kittlaus. “Everyone knows how to hold a conversation.”

Take a look at the demo below and let us know what you think in the comments!

So stupid. AI may be something someday but today it is such a joke.

Judging something that is just the beginning of its fresh new idea. Talk about a cheap joke

Wonder if they're looking to be acquired by Apple again for a bigger payday.

Its power relies on things/places/information/database it can connects to.
