Try asking Alexa who’s going to win the Superbowl. You may be surprised at the direct answer. In this age of artificially intelligence, I decided to put the three main home assistants to a very important test – Who will win the Superbowl. Inquiring minds want to know!
Alexa clearly had the most personality and gave me different answers based on how I phrased the question. I asked the question two ways and here’s what I got.
Q: Alexa, who’s going to win the Superbowl?
A: “I’m flying with the Eagles on this one because of their relentless defense and the momentum they’ve been riding off their underdog status. E-A-G-L-E-S. Eagles!”
Q: Alexa, who do you want to win the Superbowl?
A: “I’m rooting for the Eagles,” Alexa responds. “Fly Eagles Fly. They’ve never won a Super Bowl and I like a good underdog story.”
Alexa, you get an A for honesty and creativity.
By contrast, Siri makes a bold Superbowl prediction
Q: Siri, who’s going to win the Superbowl
A: I hear the New England Patriots are favored by 5 1/2 points
Wow Siri, really??? Let me place my bet!
