Google Now beats Cortana and Siri Big Time in Knowledge Base Competition

Voice Assistants are a very Hot topic right now. Google Now, Siri and Cortana are the top contestants from Google, Apple and Microsoft Respectively. We all want to know what the best is and we have seen many comparisons in the past that compare the speed and answer. That is not exactly what we’re seeing from Stone Mountain Consulting, which compared the three products by asking the 3000+ questions to each. Testing was specifically targeting the knowledge base of each.

Part of the study looked at how the query answers were presented to the user. In this case, Google Now showed a separate card with the query answer along with the other search results 58% of the time, while Siri included that knowledge base data 29% of the time, and Cortana just 20% of the time. However, that’s really just a matter of formatting and contextual information, a much more important factor is how often your question is answered completely, and in that case Google Now blew away the competition.


Google Now returned the complete answer a whopping 88% of the time, while Siri was at 53%, and Cortana at 40%.


Cortana is still relatively new but the knowledge base it draws on, which is Bing has been around since mid-2009. Given Bing’s relative age, it’s actually a bit sad to see Apple ahead of Cortana, especially since Apple doesn’t own a search engine. They mostly rely on Yahoo. The test takes a look at how useful each answer really is, but I think if we consider how personal each Virtual Assistant is, Cortana may have the Edge.

It’s great to see these Improve in the future as well, so let’s wait and see where each company will these Voice Assistants in the future. So I’m curios to know, What did you think about the Test Results? Drop a comment and let me know.
