Google's controversial AI voice assistant won't hide its identity

Google's controversial AI voice assistant won't hide its identity

Today, a Google spokesperson confirmed in a statement to Business Insider that the creators of Duplex will "make sure the system is appropriately identified" and that they are "designing this feature with disclosure built-in". There are now a total of 8 voices to choose from, so each family member is able to select their preferred voice, even on shared devices.

The technology is particularly convincing thanks to Google's speech recognition and the addition of natural language associated. "But it's equally clear that we can't just be wide-eyed about what we create", he wrote in a blog post.

Google has recently introduced a digital assistant, which can talk so human that it is nearly impossible to identify that it is a digital assistant.

One of them is the much-talked about Google Assistant, which will now be powered by updated AI technology called Google Duplex, that will help the platform better understand human speech patterns, as well as replicate human conversations in real-world applications as seamlessly as possible.

"Is it going to make all of our conversations with each other deeply suspicious and mistrustful?"

University of Toronto Prof.

After a public demonstration of its latest experiment in bots garnered disturbed reactions, Google says the AI will identify itself to call recipients as a non-human.

However, tech critics raised questions on the morality of the technology saying it was developed without proper oversight or regulation.

The technology could eventually have a significant impact on the customer service industry, which would have to begin catering to robot callers, he added. The outcome of Google's pledge, as The Verge reports, means that any person telephoned by a chatbot will be immediately informed that they are conversing with a machine.

At the Google I/O Conference, the Google chief Sunder Pichai introduces this software and told the audience that it can make appointments for them. Beyond simply predicting the word the user is typing, the software tries to anticipate their whole thought and attempts to offer complete suggested sentences. But now the company says it's working on a feature to solve that problem, according to CNET. Pascal Poupart of the University of Waterloo, who studies artificial intelligence and machine learning. This is to counter this form of mimicry in relation to Google services.

Google revealed new details about Android P, which is the successor to its Android O, or Oreo, software that now runs on billions of smartphones.

But Morrison is disturbed by the potential outcomes of the feature becoming popular.

Contrary to that the semirobotic voice you generally hear coming from a Google Home smart speaker, Duplex sounds natural.

Among them: Is it fair - or even legal - to trick people into talking to an AI system that effectively records all of its conversations?
