iOS 5: Apple hiring engineers for Siri development

Apple has posted two new job listings for “iOS Software Engineers” in order to enhance its iPhone digital personal assistance Siri.

One of the posts on Apple’s website read:

“We are looking for an engineer to join the team that implements the UI for Siri. You will primarily be responsible for implementing the conversation view and its many different actions. This includes defining a system that enables a dialog to appear intuitive, a task that involves many subtle UI behaviors in a dynamic, complex system. You will have several clients of your code, so the ability to formulate and support a clear API is needed.”

According to reports, this job description could indicate that Apple is planning to open Siri to third-party apps.

At present, the Cupertino-based company has deals with Wikipedia, Yelp and Wolfram Alpha, but many believe that a more widespread API could soon become reality.

In addition, three positions listed for “Language Technologies Engineers” are tasked with “bringing new languages to Siri, Apple’s new personal assistant technology for iPhone, as well as other cloud based services.”
