If you use an Alexa, Google Home or Siri I am sure you’ve had those moments of pure frustration when it just won’t understand you.
Will this ever get better?
In the next two videos you’ll get a glimpse of what’s to come, and I’ll try to explain why this is so important and significant.
The Future of Voice Interfaces
Voice interfaces using a natural type of conversational language, commonly known as Natural Language Processing (“NLP”) have a lot to offer, but there’s still a lot to do to make it ubiquitously useful.
Back at the turn of the century I was working with a domestic referral agency Vodafone and a very well known luxury car manufacturer to try to voice-enable a car. It was a disaster, to be honest. It simply was so unreliable and frustrating that it was deemed to be more of a distraction than a use.
Today things have progressed a lot further, but the percentage of frustrating and failed interactions with Siri or Alexa I have is still way too high to be reliable.
