Look out Siri, there’s a new artificial intelligence program in town

Robots are getting scary intelligent. Take one look at Hound and you’ll understand how advanced artificial intelligence has gotten.

Hound, a new program developed by SoundHound Inc., takes voice queries and responds more quickly, more accurate and more detailed than the most popular artificial intelligence program to date — Apple’s Siri.

SoundHound Inc. Founder and CEO Keyvan Mohajer uploaded a YouTube video, asking the program questions such as, “What’s the monthly payment on a million-dollar home?” to which it responds, “What is the down payment?” before spitting out the answer.

“Hound can’t do everything, of course, but, for users who believe that speaking to connected devices should be like how we speak normally – this shows that it’s now possible,” the video’s description said.

The app is currently available on Android and will be available on iOS soon.
