Apple Improves Siri's Accuracy, Reduces Reliance on Google

Apple has been working to improve the accuracy of Siri and reduce its reliance on Google Search, according to a report from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, relayed by MacRumors.

Munster recently issued his latest report card on Siri saying:

The primary improvement between Siri in iOS 6 and iOS 7 came from its performance in noisier areas, where Siri was able to translate better through a noisy environment (94% vs. 83% correct in Aug iOS 6). Based on our testing, iOS 7 Siri's net ability to answer questions (factors in questions not correctly understood) improved to 79% from 77% in August with iOS 6.

Notably, in Munster's December 2012 tests, 27% of Siri's answers relied on Google; however, that dropped to just 17% in August and just 4% in December 2013. Apple has shifted answers to emphasize Bing, Wikipedia, and WolframAlpha results.

Finally, when comparing Siri to Google Now, both services received a "C+" score. Google Now has a slight lead in commerce and information and Siri performed better for operating system controls.

Who's complaining over what exactly! None of whoever you think is raging over a tiny comparison!

Well, the comments sections of websites like this one explain a lot... All being proof that Apple products still remain the most iconic products. And that great desire to get hold of one them but not being able to afford one and then force yourself to settle for one of the inferior platforms and their products, it all turns into envy, confusion and rage, making you one of the many psycho rivals, storming and raiding Apple related websites with illogical, full of pain rants... I feel sorry for you puny little mindless zombies... I REALLY hope that one day you'll somehow snap out of it and get a life!

I love it, Ratboy, how you are what you rage against. You put so much thought into proving you are so much better and smarter than the rest of us only to fall short and prove you not only have no life just like the rest of us, but you make less sense than the best of us.
