The makers of Siri are back with a new super-smart AI called Viv

Siri, the velvet-voiced iOS assistant that can give you directions, beatbox, do math and chat with you about Game of Thrones, is usually associated with Apple. But Siri was not originally made by Apple; it was launched in 2007 by Stanford Research Institute as a spin-off company, led by Dag Kittlaus, Adam Cheyer and Tom Gruber, and was sold to Apple in 2010.

Six years later, Cheyer and Kittlaus are back with a new product called Viv which, according to the Washington Post, will be publicly demonstrated at an industry conference Monday.
