HOW MUCH MORE LIKELY GOOGLE AS­SIS­TANT IS TO AN­SWER QUES­TIONS OVER AMA­ZON’S ALEXA

TechLife Australia - - HOTSPOT -

New York-based dig­i­tal agency 360i has com­pared the suc­cess rate of hu­man ex­changes with the AI smart speak­ers from Google and Ama­zon (that’s the Google As­sis­tant-pow­ered Home and Alexa-pow­ered Echo, re­spec­tively). Us­ing cus­tom soft­ware to ask 3,000 ques­tions of each AI, the agency found that Google As­sis­tant was six times more likely to an­swer the ques­tions and queries of the user than Alexa. Although Ama­zon’s of­fer­ing seemed to ex­cel in top­ics re­lated to the re­tail sec­tor (funny that), Google’s over­all search­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties re­ally out­shone its com­peti­tors.
