Rate my Haircut
I’m just a speaker in the corner of your room… why don’t you tell me what your hair looks like?
In order to experiment with entities, my collaborator Luke Ryan and I created Rate My Haircut. A lot of questions users ask their Google Home are as they are about to leave the house – such as weather forecasts, or traffic reports. Inspired by the Google Home’s lack of “eyes”, we decided to create a task for another question you might ask as you leave your house, but the Google Home cannot answer: how does my hair look?
The Assistant asks you to describe your hair. The AI listens for three entities – length, colour and style – and creates a unique response. There are fallback responses for unusual hairstyles. The personality is friendly, yet cocky and playful.
It is currently in alpha on the Google Assistant.
