Apple is hiring a psychologist for Siri

The company offers a Siri Software Engineer position that requires experience in psychology counseling. According to Apple, users talk to the assistant not only searching for answers to everyday questions but also for emotional support.

Job requirements include knowledge of natural language processing technologies and machine learning as well as psychology. The future employee is invited to work in the Apple’s office in Santa Clara Valley, California, where he will be working on the project, focusing on health and wellness.

“People have serious conversations with Siri. People talk to Siri about all kinds of things, including when they are having a stressful day or have something serious on their mind,” the job advertisement says. “They turn to Siri in emergencies or when they want guidance on living a healthier life.”

Apparently, that is the reason why Apple started to look for a developer with psychological background for Siri. Besides, the company set the task to add emotional intelligence to the voice assistant long time ago.
