[QUOTE=SeÃ¡n;2655696]After my phone updated itself to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, I went to check what’s new with this Jelly Bean version and one thing I noticed is improved speech recognition, a feature I never knew it had, let alone tried until now.
I started with saying “This is a test message, testing 123” and that’s exactly what appeared on the screen.
With a good looking start, I picked a random line I saw on the Android 4.1 features page and spoke the following line:
This is what came up on my phone:
Somehow, I think there’s still room for improvement. [/QUOTE]
LOL, Siri on the iPhone is quite funny if you ask it the right questions.
I was sceptical of the Apple advert (that has since been banned here in the UK for being misleading) and wanted to test if it had any deductive capability so I started asking it questions such as ‘Who is the Prime Minister?’
The idea being to see if it was clever enough to know that (a) the phone was currently located in the UK and (b) the UK Prime Minister is David Cameron. No such joy as it just offers to do a Google search for the stuff it doesn’t understand.
This started me thinking of amusing questions though.
So I asked it ‘Why did the chicken cross the road?’ and it came back with ‘The peregrinations of pusillanimous poultry are not my concern’.
At one point my friend couldn’t get it to recognise a question and jokingly yelled into the phone ‘Are you stupid?’.
And the phone came back with ‘Well I was only trying to help’.
Oh and ‘What is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything?’ returned ‘42’ so there are obviously a few Douglas Adams fans at Apple.
