Google Assistant beats Siri, Alexa on smartphones in IQ test



New York: All three of the leading digital assistants are getting better at responding to human questions, but one still holds the top spot.

For the second year in a row, Loup Ventures found that Google Assistant answered more questions correctly than Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa in its annual IQ test. The study tested smartphone-based digital assistants by asking each the same 800 questions about finding nearby places, ordering goods, navigating and more. The study evaluated whether the assistants correctly understood the question and the accuracy of their responses.

Google Assistant correctly answered 93% of the questions and understood all 800, according to Loup Ventures. Siri came in second, answering 83% correctly and misunderstanding two questions. Alexa answered 80% correctly but only misunderstood one, according to the study.

The ranking remained consistent with that of last year’s study, but all three assistants improved their scores, Loup Ventures said. In July 2018, Google Assistant answered 86% of questions correctly while Siri answered 79% correctly. Alexa made the biggest jump from year to year, improving nearly 19 percentage points from an accuracy score of just 61% in 2018.

This year, Siri outperformed Google Assistant in the command category, according to the study. Both “far outperformed” Amazon’s Alexa in this category, which the study’s authors attributed to the fact that both are baked into the phones’ operating systems, while Alexa is part of a third-party app.

While one might expect Alexa to be best at questions about ordering goods, Loup Ventures said Google Assistant actually had the widest lead in the commerce category. Google Assistant correctly answered 92% of questions in the section, while Alexa answered 71% correctly and Siri 68%. Still, the researchers said they don’t think a significant number of consumers are making purchases through voice commands, based on consumer surveys and personal experience.













Cigarette habit will make you suffer from this deadly disease




In today’s changing lifestyle, people become latches of many things. Sometimes we continue to consume something without thinking anything, but slowly that thing starts making our body sick. One such addiction is cigarette. Cigarettes are very harmful for our health. Everyone knows this, but still continues to consume cigarettes.

Bladder cancer is found in both men and women. Cigarette smokers (active and passive) have a higher risk of bladder cancer. The cigarette causes the bladder cells to deteriorate due to which the infection starts spreading in it. When the infection spreads, the person starts having problems related to urine.

Know what is bladder cancer

Due to the formation of tumor in the bladder, the flesh is penetrated on the euro thallium layer of the blade. Due to which blood starts coming in urine. Sometimes, in some severe cases, a blood clot also accumulates in the urine, which is called hemechuria. Due to bleeding or blood clotting, it begins to spread outside the urine bag along with the spread of urine and kidney tube called medically invasive bladder tumor.

The bladder tumors are cut and removed through a cystoscope using the transurethral resection of bladder (TURBT) technique. After this, chemotherapy and radiotherapy of the patient. Tumor biopsies are also performed to determine the cancer stage. In cases where the tumor has badly clogged the bladder, the urine sac is removed by the open radical cystectomy technique.

This disease can return again

If the bladder tumor is operated upon, it will not necessarily be completely correct. It can recur in up to 25 percent of patients. The medicine (immunotherapy) is put in the patient’s urine bag for protection.
