Siri Is All Ramped Up!

If you are an Apple i-Phone user, here’s some great news for you. Siri’s sports knowledge database has been expanded with additional information about golf, allowing users to ask about upcoming tournaments, events from recent years, scores, and even player bios and stats.

For example, Siri will be able to answer queries as a tournament progresses. Golf data will cover men’s and women’s results from major PGA and LPGA dating back to 2007.

Up until now, the Siri Knowledge database contained information about American football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer, while results for other sports, including tennis and golf, were pulled from Wikipedia and other sources. Siri can be queried about golf across iOS and macOS, and the results are pulled directly from the Siri Knowledge database.
