iPhone 5 Assistant Mockup Video Created

One of the main features of the rumoured iPhone 5 is something called Assistant. The new service is expected to be for the new iPhone only rather than on older generation devices. The reason for this is that it needs an Apple A5 processor to run successfully.

Make no mistake: Apple’s ‘mainstreaming’ Artificial Intelligence in the form of a Virtual Personal Assistant is a groundbreaking event. I’d go so far as to say it is a World-Changing event. Right now a few people dabble in partial AI enabled apps like Google Voice Actions, Vlingo or Nuance Go. Siri was many iterations ahead of these technologies, or at least it was two years ago. This is REAL AI with REAL market use. If the rumors are true, Apple will enable millions upon millions of people to interact with machines with natural language. The PAL will get things done and this is only the tip of the iceberg. We’re talking another technology revolution. A new computing paradigm shift.

Although Assistant could run on the 3GS according to the comment above, the performance would not be up to the standard that Apple wants, hence it could be iPhone 5 only.

The video below shows a mockup of how Assistant will work. Take a look and see what you think. The key factor is the integration with a natural voice:
