Pichai played back a phone call recording that sounded incredibly natural, the person on the other end had no idea they were talking to a digital AI. Listen a super cool “mmhmm” by Google Assistant early in the conversation.
They have been working on this technology for many years. Its called Google Duplex. Duplex is a next level AI stuff. But Pichai said its still very much under – development. Duplex will help users in make restaurant reservations, schedule hair salon appointments, and get holiday hours over the phone.” Its a jaw-dropping revolution by Google.
