Siri Hilariously Interrupts UK Defence Secretary, Netizens Wonder If Machines Are Taking Over

Science fiction movies have always wondered how the future would be if machines became as smart/smarter than humans. ‘The Terminator’ showed that they’d probably annihilate mankind to gain superiority. ‘Blade Runner’ portrayed them as lost children searching for identity. And ‘Ex Machina’ imagined it as a seductive being capable of manipulating human emotions. However in reality, artificial intelligence would only go as far as heckling the hell out of you. At least for now.

In a video posted by BBC Parliament, we can see UK Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson giving a speech. However, he’s interrupted by none other than Siri.

This hilarious incident occurred yesterday when UK Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson was giving a speech supposedly on Syria. However, all that took a backseat as Siri started lecturing Gavin on what it has found on the internet. It took him a while to understand where the voice was coming from but he soon found out that the source was his phone.

As soon as the other members of the Parliament figured out, they also laughed at this one of a kind situation. Speaker of the Commons, John Bercow said “what a very rum business that is”. Additionally, Gavin said how rare it’s to be heckled by one’s very own phone and requested everyone if he could complete his speech without Siri’s intervention.

You can watch the video here:

The Defence Secretary addressed the matter by saying that he still has to learn a thing or two about how to use his phone.

As the video went viral, netizens showed concern about their country’s security, while others thought that this is the beginning of the apocalypse.

1. You better hope that isn’t the case.

2. Maybe he trusts Siri a bit too much.

3. I won’t be complaining if that becomes a reality.

4. Traitor!

5. That’s my favourite too. Did we become friends?

6. Run and hide, people. Run and hide!

iPhones are really confusing if you’re using them for the first time. So, it’s highly probable that this heckling happened because Gavin isn’t very used to his new phone. What’s also probable is that Siri is gaining intelligence, listening to everyone and planning to take over the world. Which is the truth? I’ll let you decide.
