Google Assistant's New Voices Are Now Live

Friday, 11 May, 2018

While such knowledge can help the firms earn more advertising dollars by directing targeted content at the users, it will also add to pressure on the tech giants on the social responsibility issue.

Google says Duplex can only carry out natural conversations after being deeply trained within a specific subject, and that it can't carry out general conversations. We mean it has actual conversations with real life people. For a start, there will be six assistant voices to choose from, depending on your preference. We think that when you look at a story, it is important to highlight the difference between a news story and an opinion.

The on-stage demo was nothing short of incredible, but we'll have to wait and see how well it works in real-world testing.

Google Duplex isn't created to replace humans altogether. Google's AI was calm, composed, friendly, and eventually finished the task.

Now, in the wake of the Google move, the calls will get louder.

For what it's worth, Google insiders told Business Insider that the company will likely tweak the final version of Google Duplex so people feel comfortable using it - and that would likely include communicating that it is, in fact, a machine talking on a person's behalf, but Google could also remove some of the "ahs" and "ums" that make some people feel uncomfortable.

Amid a global call to regulate digital platforms and safeguard users' data privacy, Google's Indian-born CEO Sundar Pichai has reiterated that the tech companies have a "deep responsibility to get things right". But the other party in that call that Google Assistant can place for you has not agreed to have his or her voiced interpreted or recorded by a robot.

The company's digital concierge, known only as the Google Assistant, is getting new voices - including one based on that of musician John Legend - later this year. A Wind Down Mode feature can let users enter the time they want to go to bed. It phones up and asks for the information it needs.

The Duplex might as well break the stereotype of being technically sound enough to use the technology - you should just know the language. The process is a simple one.

Echoing Nadella, the Google CEO said that "the need for useful and accessible information is as urgent today as it was when Google was founded almost two decades ago". Moreover, Google has made the voices more realistic and has added the support for continued conversation for a more human-like experience.
