A strong opinion on all the talking speakers and artificially intelligent assistants we have these days. Ron McElfresh on McSolo:
What’s the latest trend to hit the technology gadget sector in the past year? Talking speakers. Or, rather, artificial intelligent assistants. Intelligent probably isn’t the right word to use. Apple’s Siri may have pioneered the talking assistant craze a few years, and Siri may be the most popular and most used of that AI technology, but all of them remain mostly stupid and useless.
Siri works everywhere Apple but there is a contrast in Apple’s strength vs. Siri’s weakness.
Usability is Apple’s strong suit and that blanket does not cover Siri. Yet.
