A powerful new invention that could apply to a future version of Siri has been patented by Apple. It is designed to work with distributed sensors that a user could place throughout a home, office, or beyond. It’s an advanced reminder system that could notify you that it’s time to take your medications or that you have appointments or meetings, in any room equipped with the appropriate sensors. This interesting news was found on Patently Apple in their announcement, “Apple Wins Patent for a Surprisingly Futuristic Version of Siri that Includes Distributing Sensors throughout your Home or Office.”

The patent relating to intelligent systems and more specifically to tools for building classes of applications for intelligent automated assistants like Siri is likely to bring about more space-age convenience.
