My wife bought me an Apple iPhone 6 for Christmas and I really like it. I even set up my Siri preferences to have a male Australian accent. Suffice to say, we have been having fun asking Siri stupid questions or just blurting gobbledygook into my phone to see how Siri responds. However, a few days ago, early in the morning, I asked Siri for a weather forecast for Fremont. Siri snapped back with something like “the forecast for Fremont doesn’t look very nice today.” and showed the weather stats below. As a Michigander, I think that a 35 degree day with sunshine is quite nice in the middle of January, but Siri had a different opinion. I thought that artificial intelligence was just a data based technology, but it appears that the tech developers may have given Siri a negative bias when it comes to the Michigan weather. Other than delivering basic facts, how has Siri, Alexa, or Google expressed an opinion or bias to a question you have asked?
