    Google Assistant arrives on Microsoft's Xbox One

    Ask Google to turn your Xbox on or off, start an app, or resume a game, for example.

    When will it stop, I really hate all these AI 'assistants'.

    I wouldn't mind (AS MUCH) if they could actually process it offline, but (I believe) all they do is record the audio and send it off to a server that tries to process it, badly, and then saves it for random employees, contractors, interns, bob down the road, phylis that works in the post office, etc... to listen to on repeat with a disco beat.

    "Microsoft's sidelining of its own Cortana virtual assistant continues "

    ?? Are they? They're allowing competition on to their platform which, as far as I'm aware, is a good thing for anti-competitive behaviour. Your statement defines a situation that might not exist and casually users might take the comments as fact.

    Hell no. Cortana was not activated, same will be true for any of "AI assistants".
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Re: Google Assistant arrives on Microsoft's Xbox One

    I can see occasional uses for this but that list of commands.... it takes me back to when I tried to make my own "AI" when I was about 12. It was inspired by the Turing test and I wasn't autistic enough to make a real go of it.

    Damn, I wish I had more autism. Amusingly, someone pointed out that I had invited about 4 people to my wedding (there were around 100 guests) and ALL of them were on the spectrum.... that was funny.

    But yeh, this is just a load of "if this then that" statements with a speech to text thing in the middle. That is NOT AI, as I learned the hard way. I was amazed when I found Alexa had to receive exact inputs for certain things and couldn't do what I did when I was 12 which was to look at the input, extract key words and create a response based on those.

    Maybe I'm just cynical but this kind of rubbish reminds me of seals clapping at a ball. Except in this case it's a bunch of cynical seals who would rather gnaw the face off the arrogant trainer who thinks this is in any way impressive.

    Re: Google Assistant arrives on Microsoft's Xbox One

    Until these "AI assistants" are capable of functioning without an internet connection I have no interest in, or use for them. IMO their real purpose right now is to try and get us so used to the idea that everything we say is being sent to a server somewhere that we no longer think about it #1984
