Smart assistants are getting smarter. But are they getting smarter fast enough?

Siri frustrates me. It seems like she gets half my requests wrong. I thought it just me, but apparently not.

An American digital agency called Stone Temple tested out all the different smart assistants with 5,000 general knowledge questions. Google Assistant proved to be the best, scoring 77.2%. Siri could only answer 40% of the questions and of those she got only 80% of them right.

The good news? All these digital assistants seem to be getting better. Check out this chart from Statista.
