Siri vs Bing vs Google AI: experts score the most artificially intelligent assistant

Siri vs Bing vs Google AI: experts score the most artificially intelligent assistant
Talks about artificial intelligence and AR are all the rage in the Silicon Valley these days, and if you are looking for a fresh example, just watch Google's Pixel products presentation from the other day, which was peppered with those terms more than with specs for the actual gear it announced. 

While most of the time these are just buzzwords for improvements in existing technology, scaremongering about the robotic overlords which will come to take our jobs, or simply "put a chip in it" undertakings, there are some useful consumer-oriented applications, like the virtual assistants in the form of Siri, Google or even Microsoft's Bing and Cortana.

How intelligent is the underlying AI technology that drives those digital butlers, though? Well, a team of researchers developed an IQ test for AI algorithms, and found out that Google has the most advanced one, with 47 points, which is about the intelligence of your average 6-year old. Siri scored 24, while Bing got 32 points on the AI IQ test. 

Bummer, but things are only poised to get better, and might even trickle down as something more useful to our phones, like Google's real-time Pixel Buds translation, which may force people to use them for more than 12 minutes a month on average.

No surprise here. I think they should've added the Alexa.

It's a repackaged S-Voice.

Lol! It replaced the S-Voice. It was a improvement over the S Voice.

Alexa uses Bing, that is why it sucks.

I knew siri would get last lol, I swear it got dumber from a comprehension stand point and slower with the iOS 11 update smh, I don't really care about it sounding more human Apple, just make the damn thing work better next time you decide to "upgrade" it. I wonder why they didn't test Amazon's Alexa?

We know that they'll use different title if Siri get 1st place like "Siri is the smartest AI according to expert researcher test"

So Phonearena post a test where Apple comes last and you still complain about bias... Maybe you should check your own biases?

Just pointing out that they'll write the winner in title that if apple got 1st place, but not if other's get 1st place

Also, the tone of the write-up is predominantly negative about AI. Basically trying to dismiss the whole thing as nerd nonsense. Funny how quick we forget bionic computing, when the facts starts seeping through that it's just another example of branding without content by Apple.

No, it doesn't. Pixel 2 has the highest mark now and iPhone 8 tied with the Note 8, overall. The Note 8 kills it in still photos, though.

Ohhhh, shut up! No. 4 is spot on! Siri would definitely get the front-row seat in that title had it came first in the test.

Don't mind Jimrod... He's in denial mode now.

You guys are pathetic, denial of what? An article where Apple comes last and you're still all crying, wah wah wah. You're such Samsung sheep.

trojan_horse = ideal version of a hypocrite samsung fanboy. First he will like a comment that wished people to die then he will try to show his "good side" by saying it's a wrong thing to say to other people. Samsung fanboys here are the worst bunch of people you will see on the net. Just see how much green thumbs a samsung fanboy got just because he defended their king Note 8 despite the fact that his comment wished someone to die. Shameless brainwashed bastards.

I thought PapaSmurf was bad but now I think even PapaSmurf would be ashamed to associate himself with these people. Seriously with each passing day These Samsung fanboys are getting out of their mind. Forget about being a tech fan they are a complete failure as a human being.

Its a external source test and not iPhonearena. If they tested it, Siri would scored 100/100.

I wonder if this test was just another one with buncha fun fact questions vs actually asking these VA’s to do some real tasks. Was this another “how tall is Eiffel Tower” it was it more complex like “notify me when my wife leaves work”.
