HomePod: restrição de domínios limita assertividade da assistente Siri

Das 782 questões aplicadas apenas 52,3% foram respondidas corretamente pelo assistente da Apple. Esse cenário, no entanto, deve mudar nas futuras atualizações do produto. O estudo e as conclusões são resultado de uma pesquisa divulgada pela Loupventures no último dia 10/2.

Gene Munster:
Adding domains will quickly improve Siri’s score. Some domains like navigation, calendar, email, and calling are simply not supported. These questions were met with, “I can’t ___ on HomePod.” Also, in any case that iPhone-based Siri would bring up Google search results, HomePod would reply, “I can’t get the answer to that on HomePod,” which forces you to use your phone or give up on the question altogether. Removing navigation, calling, email, and calendar-related queries from our question set yields a 67% correct response, a jump from overall of 52.3% correct. This means added support for these domains would bring HomePod performance above that of Alexa (64%) and Cortana (57%), though still shy of Google Home (81%). 


As a speaker, it sounds incredible – mission accomplished. As a digital assistant, whether it is a direct competitor or not, it is better than what we expected for version 1, but still lags behind Alexa and Google Home.
A performance apenas razoável do assistente não deve impedir que o HomePod seja um sucesso de vendas após uma avaliação, digamos, dos seus primeiros 12 meses no mercado. 5,2% dos respondentes que já possuem algum produto da Apple, afirmaram que comprariam um HomePod no próximo ano. Vamos conferir!
