Google: Duplex phone calling AI will identify itself

Share

An artificial intelligence expert from the University of New South Wales has highlighted an ethical concern around Google Duplex, arguing that the AI technology should introduce itself as a robot. The software, however is intelligent enough to recognize if the conversation is going in a direction which it's not equipped to deal with and will transfer the call to a human in that instance. It uses a neural network to create speech that's more natural than Google's old system.

Android P is only available in beta mode for now, with eligible devices including the Google Pixel, as well as some Sony, Xiaomi, Nokia, Oppo and Vivo phones.

In this context, a Google spokesperson has given a statement to CNET, clarifying the identification details and confirming that the company include the necessary disclosure designs to the feature.

Google Duplex is expected to be in beta within the Assistant platform this summer. And for the small businesses which do not have enough customers so that the Digital Assistant can help them make appointments with the customers. Like with anything involving Google, you send a tiny bit of yourself or your information when you interact with its products.

Google has assured that all who will call bot, will be warnedAt Google promise to take measures to citizens, which will call a new bot, the Duplex, don't confused it with a real person, writes the Chronicle.info with reference on the Letters.

Adding to its trysts with machine learning, Google announced its third generation of silicon, the Tensor Processor Unit 3.0, at I/O 2018.

Google will also begin transitioning to a gesture-based control scheme, which could be a more flexible way to control the operating system.

Google Photos is also getting a variety of useful tools, like suggested actions that give you the option to brighten, share rotate or archive a photo.

Observers feel this new development from Google can be said to have passed what is called a Turing test. Turing, a British computer scientist had said in 1950 that when the computer can produce natural responses like humans, then they would be said to have passed a test. Google has dramatically improved language understanding so you can speak naturally to your Google Assistant and it will know what you mean. There's still a slightly robotic quality to the voices, and that's true of the new ones. On the in-house Pixel, the Lens now supports smart text that lets you copy and paste text from the real world to your phone.
