Tiny Experiment Reveals The Real Winner Between Amazon Alexa And Google Home
AI assistants can already be described as mainstream at this point in time. Almost all major tech companies have their own AIs. When it comes to smart speakers, two of the most popular names are Amazon Alexa and Google Home. With that, there is always the question of who does its job better.
This is why comparison experiments exist. One of the most recent tests made for these speakers was made by Forbes. Technically, both products were asked the same questions to ultimately determine which home speaker is smarter than the other.
For instance, the first question is when the next Arsenal game will be and the source said that both speakers got the answer right. When asked what time the next Central Line train to Liverpool Street from Stratford is, both units failed to answer. Alexa simply said it couldn't answer while Google Home was able to recognize that the question is public transport-related and admitted that it is still not equipped to answer such questions.
In most questions, both Amazon Alexa and Google Home was able to provide answers. Nevertheless, there are those that only one of them has a solution. For instance, when asked when the next NFL game in the UK will be, Alexa has a complete answer while Google Home had nothing. When asked how much protein can be found in two eggs, Home gave a correct answer while Alexa failed to at least understand the question.
In the end, it is pretty clear that none of the two is perfect. However, one has to win the tiny battle. Considering that functionality beats physical designs and appearance, the contest between home speakers should easily be concluded with a concrete scoring. As per the source, Alexa got 19.5 correct answers out of 54 while Google Home got 32.5 points. With that said, there's no doubt that Home beats Alexa in this specific test. The roughly 10-point difference even gave a good margin of error for the final scoring.
