Google made its artificial intelligence software a lot better.
At Google I/O 2018, the giant tech company 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 detailed an experiment with Google Assistant that leverages a technology which the company calls Duplex.
Duplex was developed to bring more artificial intelligence to Google Assistant, make calls for you, book appointments, and connect businesses with consumers.
“Done correctly, this will save time for people and generate a lot of business. We’re going to work hard to get this right,” said Pichai, who noted that Google is “working hard to give people back time.”
