Alexa loses out to Siri and Google Assistant in IQ test
<html> <p>https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmZovaRJ9jha654xJM28kZBjroVuvhcMNCtip4iYBp241M/image.png</p> <p><br></p> <p><em>Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa isn’t as smart as some of her rivals when it comes to answering questions, researchers have found.</em></p> <p><em>US firm Loup Ventures asked Alexa – and rival virtual assistants Siri, Google Assistant and Cortana – 800 questions as part of an IQ test.</em></p> <p><em>The results showed the Google Assistant was the best performing of the artificial intelligence-powered helpers, answering 86% of questions correctly, and understanding all 800.</em></p> <p><br></p> <p>https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmT1d1dUXLxpU1JisrZXszqLJeBgo2Sn1GNcBjyNrYF6aJ/image.png</p> <p><br></p> <p>Despite some criticism of its performance as a smart assistant, Apple’s Siri was second, getting 79% right and understanding 99% of the questions.</p> <p>Alexa was third, answering correctly 61% of the time and understanding 98% of queries.</p> <p>Microsoft’s Cortana, which is the least prominent of the current generation of virtual assistants, was last on the list, only answering correctly 52% of the time.</p> <p>All the assistants can be found in dedicated smart speakers, as well as on smartphones and other devices.</p> <p>The questions were split across five categories to widely test the devices on a range of skills, such as commerce, navigation, information and command.</p> <p>The researchers said it was worth noting that almost every misunderstood query or question involved a proper noun – often the name of a town or restaurant.</p> <blockquote>“Both the voice recognition and natural language processing of digital assistants across the board has improved to the point where, within reason, they will understand everything you say to them,”<strong> the report said.</strong></blockquote> </html>
