LONDON: In a recent tests performed in London, Google answers much better than Apple iphone’s Siri.
In a rigorous test conducted in London Google had performed far better than the much hyped Apple Iphone’s Siri. Siri ,In fact is the main USP of Iphone 4s and to our surprise many Apple fans have criticised this much appreciated Iphone app , Siri.
A detailed test was conducted by Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray , has proved that this natural voice guided navigation app Siri, which was mainly used to send sms,call contacts,set reminders,play music and much more, was not doing the task assigned to it properly.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald , Munster asked Siri a total of 1600 questions so that it will prove how exactly Siri answers in different noise conditions. These 1600 questions were also asked from Google Voice.
Out of these 1600 questions, 800 questions were asked from Siri in a very quiet place and other 800 were asked in a noisy streets of Minneapolis in the US.
And yes!! results are out. He concluded that Apple’s natural voice recognition app understood 83 per cent questions in quiet condition and 89 per cent in noisy conditions.
On the other hand Siri, replied about 68 per cent of question in a quiet place correctly and about 62 per cent of question in a noisy conditions.
And the result of Google was very surprising. Google understood these questions everytime and even answered 86 per cent of questions correctly.
Business magazine Fortune quoted Gene Munster ,”In order to become a viable mobile search alternative Siri must match or surpass Google’s accuracy of B+ and move from a grade D to a B or higher”. Moreover Munster added,”We expect Siri to improve meaningfully while reducing its reliance on Google from 60 per cent to 48 per cent”.
After making the complete algorithm , Munster concluded that Siri gets 60 per cent of information from Search Engine Giant Google , 20 per cent of information from Yelp, 14 per cent from its own Wolfram Alpha , 4 per cent from Yahoo and 2 per cent from Wikipedia.
