Is Siri an artificial intelligence?

We have Siri on an iphone 5.  There has been debate on the web as to whether or not Siri constitutes
AI.  Certainly Siri began life as a project in an AI lab. My theory of thought (, cognitive science, theory of thought and mind) decomposes thinking into a dozen or more functions like memory, feature detection, deduction, etc.  Of these Siri possesses perhaps half of my list.  So Siri is an AI program but doesn't yet get "all the way."  With Asa H I've tried to cover all of the required functions. But Siri does a better job with natural language processing.  Siri is a specialist. Humans and Asa H are more generalists.
