If you address the Apple iPhone digital assistant Siri by saying "OK, Glass," she has a few snappy comebacks that she delivers in a testy voice, as reported on Newsy.com on Aug. 27 and covered in the video attached to this article.
"OK, Glass" is the way people address Google Glass. Google Glass, a voice-activated artificial intelligence device, is a competitor and arch-rival to Siri. See this article for more about Google Glass.
When you first address Siri with the words "OK Glass," Siri responds "I think you've got the wrong digital assistant."
The second and a few subsequent times, she says, "I think that Glass is half empty."
Eventually Siri says, "I'm not Glass. And I'm just fine with that."
Interestingly, Google Glass is not the only Google product handling voice commands now. Droid Maxx, one of the latest Verizon smartphones from Google-owned Motorola, has a decent audio interface to Google Search. It's not quite as user friendly as Siri because Siri is so easy to activate with a large button below the iPhone screen. The Droid Maxx audio interface is activated by touching a small microphone icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
Conclusion: Google is making strides in voice activated artificial intelligence, and Apple is noticing.
