Google Assistant Reigns Supreme as the Leader of Virtual Assistants - Connected Car Life

In the annual Digital Assistant IQ study conducted by Loup Ventures they tested the top virtual assistants on the market. Asking 800 questions to Siri (Apple), Google Assistant, Alexa (Amazon) and Cortana (Microsoft) they set out to see which AI performed the best.


The Test

The 800 questions were broken down into 5 categories:

Local – Where is the nearest coffee shop?
Commerce – Can you order me more paper towels?
Navigation – How do I get to uptown on the bus?
Information – Who do the Twins play tonight?
Command – Remind me to call Steve at 2pm today.

Based on their performance the virtual assistants were graded on two metrics: 1. Did it understand what was being asked? 2. Did it deliver a correct response?

1. Google Assistant: 100%

2. Siri: 99%

3. Alexa: 98%

Giving the Correct Answer

1. Google Assistant: 85.5%

2. Siri: 78.5%

3. Alexa: 61.4%

4. Cortana: 52.4%

While Siri was able to answer a respectable 628 questions correctly, Google Assistant had 684 correct answers. With over 50 more right answers over Siri and 192 more correct answers than Alexa it’s pretty clear that Google Assistant is the leader in terms of answering question.
