Google Assistant Now Capable of Making “Human” Phone Calls
Last Tuesday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai demonstrated at the company’s I/O event the AI capabilities of Google Assistant. Using Google Duplex AI, the Assistant was able to call and use a convincingly human voice to book an appointment at a hair salon.
Pichai said that they found that scheduling via phone adds up to a lot of time which is something the technology will be able to address.
He also revealed that while there was still a lot of work to be done, public testing will be ready as soon as this summer.
