If you spend a lot of time chatting with a digital assistant on a smart speaker or on your phone, you'll be interested in a new study that dropped nearly 5,000 questions to Google Assistant, Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana.
The test of the digital agency Stone Temple discovered that the robot with artificial intelligence of Google was the most intelligent of the group in general, attending about 80 percent of the consultations and obtaining the correct answer more than 9 times out of every 10 for the questions you tried to answer. According to the study, Google Assistant is a bit smarter in a phone than in a smart speaker.
In terms of questions where an answer was attempted, Cortana ranks second with Alexa in the third. Siri languishes in fourth place, with Apple's digital assistant having just over 40 percent of the questions asked.
Winnings for 2017
Siri performed better on the accuracy of the answers, may only have tried one answer for 4 out of 10 queries, but of the answers she gave, 8 out of 10 were accurate. However, that was not enough to get him out of fourth place, since all the other assistants still performed better.
Stone Temple performed the same test last year, with Google Assistant once again coming out at the top. However, both Alexa and Cortana have come a long way in terms of the number of response attempts compared to 2017, so there is not much room for complacency from the Google Assistant.
Some of the questions with which they dealt with the applications were "who is the voice of Darth Vader?" And "how to make sand?", So it seems that these bots are not yet ready to dominate the world . You can see the full report in the Stone Temple blog.
