Alexa, Siri, Cortana, Bixby: Headed for Collision or Success?


Amazon, Microsoft, Samsung & Apple: Pick up the pace of innovation please! Alexa, Siri, Cortana, Bixby: Headed for collision or success?

With every tech company paralleling their efforts to introduce yet another virtual assistant- I had to pause today and wonder what is the interoperability plan?
Today Samsung introduced its version of Siri: Bixby. So here is a thought, why not standardize on one? Virtual Assistants learn (through machine learning) how to understand you better. Siri, totally gets me- Alexa is rapidly getting better and Bixby is brand new. Do I want to train 4 Virtual (Voice) Assistants or one is enough? Do you want 4 assistants that understand you at different levels? Efficient?

Why not take one and make it ton better rather than have 4 parallel things doing the same? Can my Siri talk to my Bixby? Do I need it to? Innovating mindfully is a must here! Let’s not create another VA rather make it far more intelligent!!!

Chime in on this conversation on LinkedIn.
