Google Assistant Is Funnier Thanks To Pixar, The Onion Writers
While Google is polishing the Google Home for its apparent release, one thing the company considered is upgrading the Google Assistant's way of interaction. The communication between the user and the product should be seamless and almost life-like. That is why Google tapped the great minds of Pixar and The Onion alumni to add humor in the way the Google Assistant interacts with user.
Make the Google Assistant funnier
According to the Wall Street Journal, in an effort to be ahead of the competition, Google had acquired the expertise of some comedy writers from Pixar and The Onion to make the Google Assistant respond with a little sense of humor. This is expected to enhance the interaction of the user with the robot assistant. As the product's main interface is the voice and the conversation itself, this added ability of the Google Assistant will go a long way in how the user perceive its usability.
Enhancing the user experience
The Google Assistant's ability to answer questions and instructions is reportedly way above than that of Apple's Siri or Microsoft's Cortana. However, the user experience somehow is dragged down by being too mechanical and devoid of human touch, which is an area that the Pixar and The Onion writers might be able to fix.
The report also added that if Google were to provide the same efficiency of how it handles requests and maintain a good experience with its conversational type of response, the connection between the user and the platform would be more than just a casual exchange of information.
A peek into the future
This development, though still early in its stage, is the right direction for the social media giant. The future of artificial intelligence is nothing short of amazing and the advent of Google Assistant, Cortana, Siri and Alexa gives us a peek of what to expect in the future and the direction where technology is heading, which Google hopes to lead.
