gigaaa

Competitive Position

The world's largest IT companies have their own products that use voice inputs. Microsoft has Cortana, Apple has Siri, Google has Google Assistant, IBM has Watson and Amazon has Alexa. They all have their own strengths and weaknesses, but how do they compare?

Google – Google Assistant

Strengths: Very good speech recognition, proactive functions, great general knowledge, simple semantic comprehension, cross-platform.
Weaknesses: Impersonal, not completely hands-free, limited browser features.

Microsoft – Cortana

Strengths: Very good speech recognition, very human-like response, speech recognition works offline, smartphone controllable without a network connection.
Weaknesses: Little reference to topicality, no context references, missing telephony functions, trapped in loudspeaker.

Soundhound – Hound

Strengths: Very good speech recognition in certain areas, partly intelligent links and processing, use of the context in parts.
Weaknesses: Too many knowledge gaps, not proactive, low system integration, rather impersonal, not usable freehand.

Amazon – Alexa

Strengths: Good speech recognition, human touch, good general knowledge.
Weaknesses: Little reference to topicality, no context references, missing telephony functions, trapped in loudspeaker.

Apple – Siri

Strengths: Very good speech recognition, human touch, very broad general knowledge, proactive.
Weaknesses: Very talkative, platform-bound.

Unlike gigaaa, none of these products have a social networking service. None of them are able to learn independently from inputs that go beyond the use of a single user, and most importantly: none of these systems are as easily extended and scalable as gigaaa. This allows us to be the fastest of all intelligent assistants when it comes to deploying new functions, responding to interested companies who want to become part of the system, and marketing new third-party services or products. This is because our competitors either use closed systems (see Apple, Microsoft, Amazon) or rigid frameworks that make expansion extremely time-consuming and expensive (see Google, IBM). We believe this will give gigaaa a proven technological edge in a very short time.
