Viv is Siri 2.0

Viv, the open platform voice assistant from the creators of Siri, was demonstrated today at Disrupt New York and generally impressed as expected. Not only did Viv handle conversational requests for information but also but by connecting with third-party merchants to purchase goods and book reservations.

Viv additionally demonstrated dynamic program generation. With every verbal requests Viv showed the code that handled it. This could allow developers build a conversational UI by speaking to Viv and tweaking the generated code returned.

Viv utilizes advancements that will replace current voice assistants like Siri and Cortana.
