I asked: “Hey Siri, do you know Alexa?”
Siri replied: “I offer no resistance to helpful assistants!”
Reminiscing “Hierarchy of Anticipation” by Robert Stephens, one of the co-founders of Assist – The automated assistant platform for message and voice, Siri has been designed to recognize preferences driven by past behavior.
The most prevalent voice assistants for smartphones, available along with iOS and Android devices are Apple’s voice-controlled digital assistant for iOS, Amazon’s Echo (Alexa) and Google Voice assistant for both Android and iOS.
Nine years on from Siri, six years on from Alexa and four years on from Google Assistant; Apple, Amazon, and Google have spread their voice assistants far and wide respectively.
Siri is intelligent enough to handle all the language processing and semantic analysis that is required to turn these spoken requests into instructions that the app can handle.
