After getting ahead of its competitors by integrating ChatGPT into Bing, Satya Nadella attacks all voice assistants, including Cortana

Satya Nadella and ChatGPT

when we finish writing an article who timidly criticizes artificial intelligence with Chat GPT to the head, we have heard a piece of news in which Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, did a bit of the same thing with all the voice assistants on the market. He did so in an interview in The Financial Times, and the word he has used to define them has been "fools."

Nadella said last month that all were "dumb as a stone«, and the first to mention was his, Cortana, which was present in mobiles with Windows Phone and also in Windows 10, but very few have used. In the same sentence there was room for the rest of the assistants, such as Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri, and he said that they simply do not work; that they were supposed to change everything, but it didn't work.

Is Satya Nadella right?

I think you have to examine the situation and understand things a bit. The CEO of Microsoft did not intend to give a stitch without a thread. His company invested billions in Chat GPT, and is already integrated into Bing if you use Windows and Edge. So, in my opinion, rather than criticize the voice assistants found in the most popular devices, his intention is to speak well of his new investment.

There's one thing he's right about: the attendees he calls dumb are a little dumb. You cannot hold conversations with them, to the point that many times they show us Internet results that might interest us. But these kinds of assistants weren't designed to change everything as Nadella claims; They were designed to make things easier for us. They are integrated into the operating system, and their function is, for example, that we tell you to create a reminder for us and do so; that we tell him to call and do it; that we tell him to read the messages to us and do it. Always from my point of view, it is not that they are stupid; the thing is they are for what they are.

It is also true that ChatGPT has changed things a lot, and that the assistants must improve at least a little so that we do not have the feeling that they are useless, even if only for marketing purposes. And I also have another thing clear: I am not going to switch to Windows and Edge because Nadella says so, since, to me, dumb dumb is their operating system.
