Onstage at I/O 2018, Google has showed off their new amazing feature with their Google Assistant: Making Calls for you. CEO Sundar Picha played some recorded phone calls of Google Duplex in action. First was a call to a salon to schedule a haircut. It is amazing on how the AI sounded very natural. The other person on the other line didn’t even noticed that she was talking to a robot.
Pichai told the audience that it was a real call and not a staged demo. The CEO also told that the AI can react very intelligently even when the conversation doesn’t go exactly as expected. He said that the AI is still in very much under development and Google plans have an early testing this summer. Check out more details about Google Duplex.
