Nuance Communications has released Dragon Go!, a “revolutionary and free application for iPhone and iPod touch that gives consumers immediate, direct access to the mobile content they want. Dragon Go! marks a generational leap in the mobile content experience to pick up where search leaves off. Not only does Dragon Go! hear what people are searching for, but it understands what they want, giving them direct access to relevant results from 180 of the most trusted and reliable content providers, including AccuWeather, Bing, ESPN, Facebook, Fandango, iTunes, Last.fm, LiveNation, Milo.com, OpenTable, Pandora ® internet radio, Rotten Tomatoes, Twitter, Wikipedia, Yelp, YouTube, Yahoo! and many others – with the list of content providers growing each day.”

A potential challenger to Siri, the virtual personal assistant acquired by Apple last year, “With Dragon Go!, people simply speak a query, and the app automatically determines and then delivers the best content destinations via the newly optimized Dragon CarouselTM. Gone are the days of endless scrolling. Dragon Go! always puts the most relevant pages front and center, and additional content from related providers is easily accessible on the Carousel with just a simple flick of the finger. Dynamic results are provided center and to the right, with additional results from Google, Bing or Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Twitter and YouTube available to the left.”

The article continues, “Dragon Go! combines Nuance’s Dragon voice recognition technology with natural language understanding, unique analytical tools, and elements of artificial intelligence. The result is an app that understands the intent of a query, and what a person wants to do – be it getting restaurant reviews, buying movie tickets, shopping, finding directions, listening to their favorite music, and more.”
