Google now understands language at 95% accuracy, has improved by 20% in 2 years

Google now understands human language with a 95% accuracy, thanks to improvements in machine learning. This allows the company to detect voice and act upon it in a meaningful way, and will clearly be of a huge benefit to the Google Assistant, a core Google product that is available on a lot of Android phones.
What's notable, though, is not only the figure, but how Google arrived at it: the company improved its understanding of human language by a whopping 20% in just the last four years or so, since 2013, according to a report by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers partner Mary Meeker.
These improvements bring us closer to a day when talking to a phone will be as quick and smooth as talking to a real human person. We're not yet there, of course, but we're getting close at a very high speed.
Another interesting number is that the amount of voice queries made on mobile phones has also grown rapidly, and now 20% of mobile queries in 2016 were made via voice.
Are you personally using voice input with your phone and how? Speak up in the comments section below.

If you used an S8, then you would have realized that it also has Google Assistant as well as Bixby.

Thats exactly his point. Why release bixby when we glready have google assistant? At best they could have made it a korea only feature and leave the rest of the world for an an assistant who actually knows how to speak english.

Don't forget samsung is world leader in almost ever consumer electronics category, this provide them a huge user base.... Samsung will integrate Bixby in almost everything according to its choice.... ( Tizen powered home appliances, smartphones, tablets, smart watch, cars.....) JUST GIVE SAMSUNG A YEAR TO SHOW ITS ABILITY. I'M sure BIXBY will easily outperform GOOGLE ASSISTANT. (Samsung has proved that they can beat Google.....Tizen powered smartwatchs are good examle)
