New App hopes to rival Siri, available now for Android, iOS and online.

True Knowledge claims to have built the “world’s first AI question answering machine”.

After a play with the Android App, I’m pretty impressed. Not only can it answer every question I threw at it, the Google voice recognition it’s based on managed to understand my New Zealand accent. The app reads aloud answers and presents them on screen.

While Siri works mainly to help you use the functions of your iPhone, the True Knowledge Evi app pulls answers for questions based on its databases of facts, provided both by the company and also by end users.

The crucial difference between our technology and sites like Wikipedia is that, whereas their users create and edit documents in natural language, here the information is in the form of discrete facts. Unlike natural language, these facts are in a form that computers can understand and process.

Apple users need to pay 99c for the app, most of which is paid to licence the voice recognition technology on the iOS platform - download that version here.

Android users get it free, as it uses the open source Android voice recognition - download here.

The technology is not only voice based, users can also enter plain text questions in the Apps, or on the website here.
