Siri Meets ELIZA [SiriProxy Plugin]

@plamoni just released a Plugin for his SiriProxy. It allows you to talk to ELIZA, the famous computer therapist from the 60′s. For those of you who don’t know what ELIZA is, here is a short description from wikipedia:

ELIZA is a computer program and an early example of primitive natural language processing. ELIZA operated by processing users’ responses to scripts, the most famous of which was DOCTOR, a simulation of a Rogerian psychotherapist. Using almost no information about human thought or emotion, DOCTOR sometimes provided a startlingly human-like interaction. ELIZA was written at MIT by Joseph Weizenbaum between 1964 to 1966.

To use this Plugin, you need to have the SiriProxy by @plamoni up and running.

You can talk to ELIZA online here.

Hacker Creates a Proxy Server For Siri, Allows You to Add New Commands to Siri

Applidium recently cracked Siri’s security protocol and found out how Siri communicates with Apple’s servers. That knowledge was used by @plamoni to develop a proxy server to add new functionality to Siri. The source code of his proxy server is available at GitHub.

We have already seen a similar project called HubotSiri, although its source code never got released.

@plamoni released an impressing video demonstrating how his tweak can be used to control a Wi-Fi Thermostat.

Currently, setting up the server requires solid knowledge of certificates and openssl. As soon as a public jailbreak for the iPhone 4S is released, we will most likely see this hack as a tweak in Cydia.

What new commands would you like to see in Siri? Let us know in the comments below.

You can download the source code here:
