Hound speech-recognition makes mockery of competitors

Hound speech-recognition makes mockery of competitors

(2:28) June 2015. American speech-recognition software uses simultaneous speech and language recognition to provide a much faster and more intuitive voice-command system than competitors like Apple's Siri or Microsoft's Cortana. Hound is currently in beta testing and will soon be available for integration with third-party apps.

Wish it didn't keep repeating the question.

Fake. This app has been primed. Even the processing time to extract that kind of information from an offline database would make it slower than this video, let alone understanding the speech and formulating a verbal reply.

Prove it's fake then. Download the app, request a beta activation code, try it, video it, and then post your results. Otherwise, STFU until you prove your claims.

Are you a troll, or really that dim? We're not allowed to challenge something that's obviously dubious unless we go well out of our way to prove it? Geez you must have a really hard time online having to prove and disprove stuff. Or perhaps you just like to try to shut down potential critics with your big-man talk. I'm very scared.

For the record, it's not available in my country, but if you could be bothered to read some user reviews of the product you're so defensive about, you'd see that it's clearly very flawed and importantly this video does not reflect its actual abilities.

Deal with it.

The OP was not just comments, it was stated as factual.

1. Fake. How would you know that unless you tried it? You obviously don't and therefore are making baseless claims.

2. The app has been primed. That is a statement and not opinion so requires proof.

3. Even the processing time to extract that kind of information from an offline database would make it slower than this video . OP made assumptions probably based on his/her slow ISP.

4. let alone understanding the speech and formulating a verbal reply. Not unusual considering today's technology so OP's ingorance regarding technology doesn't have any basis in facts.

Regarding your comments (and could be the same as OP).

5. We're not allowed to challenge something. Sure you can but challenging something is different than stating something that's fact like "Fake" which then requires proof. If it was simply stated as, "I find this hard to believe this program is really that great so I cannot wait to try it to see how it really performs" would have been better.

6. it's not available in my country. That's yoru problem. It is available in my country and I have already downloaded the program. Too bad for you.

7. if you could be bothered to read some user reviews. I did and it's obvious you did not. Many people state that it is very responsive but there are a couple voice translation errors but overall an excellent application especially one that is in beta.

8. the product you're so defensive about. It's not my app and I'm not defensive about it. I have no financial interest in the program except that I will probably buy it once the full verison is available for sale and after I play with the beta version. All I asked the OP for was proof of claims. I would have said the same thing if you said the new Windows 10 doesn't work on an i7 processor.

Wow you're bored. I'm leaning towards troll, but OK, let's number.

1) How would we guess that it's fake? Because of something called deduction. Before you handle an item you can already assess its plausibility; You can also compare it with reviews, other videos, query the reliability of the source, and make a reasoned assessment. (See #7)

2) The statement 'it is primed' was backed up with observations relating to the speed and processing power. It 'requires proof'? For what? To be believed by you?! Do you seriously go through life thinking people owe you an explanation? Christ on a bike.

3) The term 'offline' means NOT on the internet, so I don't know why you are assuming the OP's ISP has anything to do with it. I think the point is that even accessing a database stored on your phone, you would expect some lag, which brings me onto...

4) No lag whatsoever when accessing a large and complex database is VERY unusual with modern phone technology, so unless they've also designed a new smartphone something's not quite right. Either way, it is clearly not representative of the general user experience (again, see #7).

5) That is a ridiculous idea. Saying 'Fake' is a just a blunt way of challenging something and is clearly just a less verbose way of saying that your opinion is that it's not genuine, or not as depicted at least. If you want to edit the internet to remove all brief interjections and replace them with wordy alternatives, you have some work to do.

6) Haha!, fine, well don't tell people to 'prove it' if you know perfectly well that they're unlikely to get the chance to even though they may be correct. Childish.

7) Wrong. I don't know about OP but I've seen a few video reviews and not ONE has the same responsiveness. It's clearly quick, but nothing LIKE the video. I'm surprised that you haven't noticed the same, though perhaps you wouldn't admit it even if you had.

8) You do seem very defensive about it whether it's your app or not. My understanding of the OP, (and my personal opinion too), is that while the app itself isn't 'fake', the video here to some degree is. Until independent video reviews are released showing the same speed and complexity of response, I will not be convinced. You it would seem are happy to believe anything a developer shows you but unhappy for anyone else to voice an opinion unless they 'prove it' to you. Good for you, I'm sure that attitude has got you far.
