The most popular e-commerce company, Amazon managed to develop Alexa, a digital voice assistant but as per a new study, it’s the Google Assistant that ranks top as the smartest voice assistant. Recently, Stone Temple, a digital marketing agency quizzed the top artificial intelligence assistants by asking them 5,000 questions to check which one is more capable of providing the correct information. It was Google Assistant that came out to hold the top positing edging out Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri and also Microsoft’s Cortana.
All of these personal assistants were asked the same set of question to judge the best and were graded basis their answers and how correct they were. Each voice assistant hit on 80% or more of the responses that they offered But Google Assistant set the bars in both categories. However, the assistant performed better on a smartphone than on Google Home smart speaker, sounds weird, No?
It was also revealed that all these voice assistants are getting smarter over time. Amazon’s Alexa topped its game considerably since it was put through the ringer in the previous year, more than 50 percent questions it attempted for the response. That trend will perhaps carry on as these things endure to acquire more from people throwing millions of questions at them each day.
Only Google Assistant could try to answer more than 75% of the questions. While Microsoft’s Cortana took around two out of three and Amazon’s well-known Alexa answered just over the half of the questions being asked and yes not to forget Apple’s Siri could bother to answer only 40% of the questions asked. It’s pretty bad!
Most of the people who interact with these artificial intelligence assistants seem to understand these failings pretty rapidly, as well. It’s also unveiled that these AI based voice assistants have a terrible retention rate with just 3% of users utilizing them regularly after two weeks of their first interaction, reported Alpine.
The reason behind their failure to retain users is that because it comes up empty on some questions and requestions and they aren’t just all that suitable or time-saving.
People with visual impairments can certainly enjoy these voice assistants making their life easier. According to AbilityNet, the voice assistant services could also benefit the people with learning disabilities or dyslexia.
Well, Alexa, Siri, Cortana and Google Assistant are likely to continue to get incrementally better with the passage of time. And maybe there will be the day when they can actually prove to survive up to the potential that they have promised.
