A Siri for other phones? Nuance brings Dragon Go to Android
There are a lot of bad Siri (s aapl) imitators in the Android Market (s goog), but Monday night a pretty close approximation to Apple’s now-iconic personal assistant will be available. At CES, Nuance Communications (s nuan) is launching an Android version (s GOOG) of Dragon Go, its voice-powered semantic search app.
Nuance developed the speech recognition and natural language technology that powers Siri and many other voice assistant services, but it also maintains its own consumer-facing applications under the Dragon banner.
