Voice recognition, voice to text, and voice instructions are becoming ever more precise. I have to say the voice control of telephone calls in the Jaguar is excellent. It has no problem at all with interpreting commands such as "Call Bob Smith, mobile".

MIL is unfortunately losing her sight, but not her marbles. We were playing around with voice commands via Google Assistant on my Android phone today. It absolutely had us in stitches and just about rolling on the floor rofl

My phone is set up for Australian English and Italian. If I give it a command such as "Remind me to buy bananas at 9 o'clock tomorrow" it comes back, in a nice Australian female voice with something like "Promemoria: Buy bananas, 9AM Thursday. Do you wish me to save that or modify it?". I answered "Yes thank you", which the first time round had her repeat the question (now I obviously should have said save or modify) . I simply said "Yes" and she came back to me again in the same voice but with an Australian-Italian accent: "you wanna me to save o a modify".
I said "yes" again and MIL said "say Si". A voice came back "Ah Sorry" and then repeated the question, male voice this time, in Italian. We tried several different things and got similar results. Most of the time it worked perfectly so we had to speak too quickly or say something silly to get the reaction.

Talk about laugh! I was able to demonstrate the same thing to Alis later so it was not a one off. Best laugh we have had in months, and it shows that the programing team at Google really do have a sense of humour.

I don't think voice control is quite there yet but it holds promise to reach the levels that we have been seeing in Sci-Fi since 2001 - a Space Odyssey. Mind you that didn't go so well either:

Does it feel like we are at the first stage of "artificial intelligence" or stumbling towards the signpost pointing at it!


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

When it comes to Artificial Intelligence I think we're setting the bar too high .... half the people I meet every day wouldn't pass a Turing Test!! smile
