What Happens When Siri And Google Voice Talk To Each Other?
To put it mildly, it goes very wrong very fast:
What happens when two of the most popular digital voices speak to each other? A whole lot of confusion, that’s what. Artist Michael Silber wanted to put both Siri and Google Voice to the test, so he had the two applications talk to each other and saw what happened. Here is the way he described his process:
PROCESS 1. I recorded the audio of Siri reading a selection of text. 2. I placed a call to myself and played the Siri audio recording into my Google Voice voicemail. 3. I instructed Siri to read the new Google Voice transcription, including any errors and recorded a new audio clip. 4. I placed a call to myself and played the new Siri audio recording back into my Google Voice voicemail.
Silber repeated the process 10 times for this video, and 50 times for another one.
Here’s the video of the the experiment done ten times:
And here it is at 50 times, by the time you get to the 40s there aren’t even coherent sentences being formed:
