Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa are leading the way in A.I driven personal assistants. We are only just beginning, voice commands have come a long way but we still can’t rely on them to consistently capture exactly what we are saying, let alone what we want. Apple’s Siri is lagging behind when it comes to consumer adoption despite the fact that they were one of the first ones to enable voice commands that kind of worked on iPhone years ago. Apple’s HomePod is a late entry into the home, Amazon Echo and Google Home have the bigger share of that market.
Hardware is quite impressive but what’s really interesting is the software that powers these voices 🙂 How do these devices pack so much A.I in, is the answer the Cloud? We will explore in greater detail in our next post.
