Siri Meets Her Match on Android Phones

By Miguel Leiva-Gomez December 06, 2011

Until now, everyone’s wanted an iPhone badly just to have a talk with Siri, the latest AI voice recognition software created for Apple’s iOS. While other voice recognition apps were created for other operating systems, Siri still remained unmatched. They compared to Siri like hamburgers compare to caviar.

Meet “Cluzee,” an app for Android OS that has all the capabilities of Siri, and sometimes doesn’t just stop there. Today, Cluzee was launched for millions of Android phone users to download and use, calling itself “your intelligent personal assistant.” A demonstration of the intelligent software shows how its capabilities extend beyond just showing relevant data.

Cluzee performed a search on the Internet for the fastest route to an appointment for her user. The application replied with the correct information, saving the user time in getting to the appointment.

Tronton is the team that created Cluzee and prides itself today in its release as the world sees another application that can take on Siri’s intelligence. Despite the craze, the application has received a 2.2 star average rating in Android’s application repository.

Ashish Patwa, CEO of Tronton, felt that people were overwhelmed with the amount of information received by automatic response applications and felt that Cluzee resolved this issue.

“We don’t need all of the information available, all of the time. We just need the right information at the right time, which Cluzee intelligently provides, making us more productive. Technology created the problem, but we’re using smarter technology to solve it,” said Patwa.

Most of the users who rated the application felt that the program needs to improve slightly before they use it in their daily lives. Others feel a drastic overhaul is necessary. Few actually feel satisfied with the program as it currently is.
