University of California: Hey Siri, an ancient algorithm may help you grasp metaphors

University of California: Hey Siri, an ancient algorithm may help you grasp metaphors. “Ask Siri to find a math tutor to help you ‘grasp’ calculus and she’s likely to respond that your request is beyond her abilities. That’s because metaphors like ‘grasp’ are difficult for Apple’s voice-controlled personal assistant to, well, grasp. But new UC Berkeley research suggests that Siri and other digital helpers could someday learn the algorithms that humans have used for centuries to create and understand metaphorical language.”
