Research firm Loup Ventures did a pretty interesting test of the smart wizards Google, Siri and Alexa. The results were quite funny since Alexa was considered the most helpless assistant, according to the tests.
The 3 assistants were tested on about 800 different questions. The criteria were number of correct answers and comprehension rate. Alexa's biggest difficulty seems to be answering the questions correctly, with a rate of 79.8% and comprehension of 99.9%
Apple Siri answered 83.1% of the questions correctly, with an understanding of 99.8%. Google Assistant remains the most competent assistant with 92.9% correct answers and an incredible 100% understanding.
However, Google Assistant was not the best in all categories
Locations, commerce, navigation, information and voice commands. These were the 5 categories where assistants were tested. Not all is bad news for Alexa as it far surpassed Siri in the commerce and information categories.
This means that Alexa is more suitable for general information and shopping than Siri. In turn, Siri was the best assistant in voice commands. Overall, Google Assistant is the most balanced.
