“Onstage at I/O 2018, Google showed off a jaw-dropping new capability of Google Assistant: in the not too distant future, it’s going to make phone calls on your behalf. CEO Sundar Pichai played back a phone call recording that he said was placed by the Assistant to a hair salon. The voice sounded incredibly natural; the person on the other end had no idea they were talking to a digital AI helper. Google Assistant even dropped in a super casual “mmhmmm” early in the conversation.

Pichai reiterated that this was a real call using Assistant and not some staged demo. “The amazing thing is that Assistant can actually understand the nuances of conversation,” he said. “We’ve been working on this technology for many years. It’s called Google Duplex.”

Duplex really feels like next-level AI stuff, but Google’s chief executive said it’s still very much under development. Google plans to conduct early testing of Duplex inside Assistant this summer “to help users make restaurant reservations, schedule hair salon appointments, and get holiday hours over the phone.”

Pichai says the Assistant can react intelligently even when a conversation “doesn’t go as expected” and veers off course a bit from the given objective. “We’re still developing this technology, and we want to work hard to get this right,” he said. “We really want it to work in cases, say, if you’re a busy parent in the morning and your kid is sick and you want to call for a doctor’s appointment.” Google has published a blog post with more details and soundbites of Duplex in action.”

    See, here's my thoughts: Once a business spends the bzillion dollars to purchase one of these expensive toys, they're going to want to get their money's worth out of it. So they buy it for filing and phone, etc. But then they think…what else do we have around here that this thing can do? Save us a few bucks on an employee, right? — You know they would cuz if WE bought an expensive thing like this for our home, we'd want to get every bit of that money out of it by seeing what all it could do!

    The sooner people lose their jobs, the sooner the unemployment spikes and ends capitalism.

    We have no fallback plan for when AI takes our jobs. Our plan is to smile while the ship is sinking. Ask politicians about what we'll do for jobs in the future and they just go blank.

    I will always choose a bot over a human if I need to interact in some way in the same way that I would rather text than call.

    I'm heavily invested into the computer field but even I am skeptical about AI having such an authentic voice like this. This easily can be used in negative if not nefarious activities. Criminals will be able to remotely call people with completely disguised voices for bomb threats or pretending to be someone else to authenticate credentials or apply for a credit card. This is letting a genie out of a bottle and will have to come with certain safeguards to keep it from being abused by the criminal element.

    This isn’t a “robot”, you retards. By the one everyone, the A.I’s “natural voice” is actually pre-recorded stuff. The A.I decided what pre-recorded options to say. If you pay attention closely, the numbers in the voice conversation are not pre-recorded, so it sounds very weird compared to the rest of the things the A.I says.

    All of this is deceptive, AI isn't nearly as far along as most people think. Learn something. Jesus.

    I'll feel offended when a robot will call me, as soon I would know if it's a robot calling me and not a person I'll hang up. Even further, if I notice that a client has booked a service at my company using a robot assistant I'll ask him/her in a friendly matter to leave the office and not to return ever. Period.
