Funny you should mention Enterprise. Apparently, Google/Android's "Siri" app is code-named "Majel" for the woman (Majel Barrett) who was Mrs. Gene Roddenberry, Nurse Chapel -- and the voice of the Computer!

Subject: Re: what doc formats do READERs want ?
I think given that option, most users would eventually settle on a preference for something that works like the iPhone's Siri or the computer on the Starship Enterprise. Ask a question, the system either "understands" the context or asks for whatever additional information is needed to define context, then provides the needed information and offers optional information.
