Linked Callouts in Siri
Siri today provides fast, direct, and trustworthy answers to open domain questions. The answers are in the form of a passage, and a short span that directly answers the question is highlighted. We have now added Linked Callout on top of the passage. If the highlighted text contains a named entity, it is chosen to be shown on top of the passage as Linked Callout. The named-entity is linked to a knowledge graph (KG), and users can explore more information about that entity by tapping onto the KG card. The goal of linked callout feature is to combine structured knowledge and unstructured information retrieval techniques. The linked callout provides direct, clear, and complete answers to user queries, and significantly enriches the web answer user experience.
All ACL attendees were invited to stop by the Apple booth to experience this demo in person.
Jason Williams is an Industry Track chair for ACL 2023.
Stephan Peitz is an Area chair for ACL 2023.
Mozhdeh Gheini, Robin Schmidt, Shruti Bhargava, and Tatiana Likhomanenko are reviewers for ACL 2023.
