Siri, how can I interrupt my own presentation

Dr Mumbo has always liked a good heckle, but he’s never come across someone able to heckle themselves while on stage.

Thanks, though to the wonderful world of AI, this is now possible.

Simon Corah says a left brain/right brain approach led to McDonald's gourmet burgers.

Growth Mantra founder Simon Corah was on stage this week at the Mumbrella Finance Marketing Summit regaling the audience with wonders of Apple’s latest software update and explaining that linked to an automated home, you could now ask Siri to lock you doors while on holiday in Fiji.

“Today, you can go on to Siri and say ‘Siri, I’m in Fiji, I’m on holiday, I wonder if I locked my house?’,” Corah said.

“Siri, lock my house and close my windows.”

As he called out the commands, the muffled voice of Siri emerged from someone’s phone offering to aid Corah’s existential crisis.

A lesson for anyone talking about tech in a presentation – be careful what you ask for.
