Google: Duplex phone calling AI will identify itself

Google: Duplex phone calling AI will identify itself

Here are 10 that really matter.

Google's voice Assistant has been updated to be even smarter.

"However, In the second Pichai demoed Duplex Tuesday in the Google I/O annual developers conference, individuals expressed concern about the way in which the voice technologies could mislead people".

A blog post cleared most of the doubt around the technology, called Duplex and answered questions which Google didn't onstage.

What stole the show, however, was when Google announced that award-winning R&B artist John Legend would be voicing some commands for Google Assistant.

Duplex is able to make reservations or book appointments through phone calls and is a bit creepy how realistic it can sound during a conversation. The first was to make an appointment with a hair dresser, a call that was straightforward and went smoothly.

"A auto assistant could call the ambulance in the case of an emergency like an accident, and in this case, it is a life-saving technology", he says.

A key part of having a natural conversation is being able to ask about many things at once. Also, you won't need to say hey, Google after every query.

When you think about it, Google knows your hobbies and interests, thanks to your search history. Android P does not have a name yet but that's alright.

Aside from the talk of digital wellbeing, the rest of the opening keynote at Google I/O focused on feature improvements to its biggest and most profitable products. Google, with its billion-plus Android users around the world, realizes that it has a significant role to play in this phenomenon. "We'll be experimenting with the right approach over the coming months".

Google has officially rolled out all these features. It has built a business that is substantially reliant on converting users' time into dollars, not selling goods or charging subscription fees. Only now it is bringing the technology to more developers through ML Kit.

It also makes it easier for them to display adverts.

Google is working on its own line of next generation smartwatches in conjunction with Qualcomm.

TPU 3.0 boasts of liquid-cooling and will allow Google "to train and run models faster so more products can be enhanced with AI".

Google is an advertising company. If those words aren't heard, Google Assistant won't respond. The new visual design will be available in the Google Assistant app later this year.

Plenty of new features are on the way with Android P, including "Digital Wellness" tools to limit screen time, iPhone X-like gesture controls and sophisticated AI to extend your phone's battery life. It can also match items around you, and also let you view similar items. The Assistant will give you a quick snapshot of your day, with suggestions based on the time of day, location and recent interactions with the Assistant.
