Google I/O 2018 Complete Wrap Up: Everything You Need To Know

Since the introduction of Google Action, it has been gaining more and more new features. As impressive as it was to see this, the demo soon raised a debate on whether the human-like AI should identify itself to humans.

That led to criticism by the likes of technology sociologist Zeynep Tufekci, who described the AI assistant "ethically lost" on Twitter, given the use of computers to deceive real humans by sounding like them.

"We spent two years telling people "this is how to make Material yours", and it didn't work", Duarte said shortly after Google lifted the lid on its updated vision for software design. "What we showed at I/O was an early technology demo, and we look forward to incorporating feedback as we develop this into a product", a Google spokeswoman said in a statement.

Unveiled at this year's Google I/O - the company's flagship annual tech conference held from 8 to 10 May - Google Duplex is an AI and natural language-driven extension of Google Assistant, its existing mobile and smart home solution. It allows for any of the Assistant's six voices to make calls on behalf of individuals to businesses to make a reservation, noting dates, times and any limiting parameters imposed by the business such as party sizes or scheduling conflicts. Duplex will help Google Assistant become more "human" than ever before, and could pave the way for truly seamless human-AI interactions in the future.

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. This technology makes the Assistant able to engage the other person on call like a real person.

Bill Gates says he'd bet against Bitcoin
CME Group, the world's leading financial market firm, also launched its own Bitcoin futures contracts on December 17th, 2017. Quoting Buffett, the Reuters report suggested that the billionaire was not at all fond of Bitcoins.

Google is rolling out a tool called "Your Match", which uses machine learning to determine your location and interests, serving up targeted suggestions for new businesses opening up in your area and more.

Like so many of Google's wide-reaching initiatives, I feel "digital wellbeing" is rooted in a good place. However, Google has spoken in defence of its creation, saying that Duplex has an inbuilt disclosure system to alert call recipients that they are talking to a robot.

These are questions it seems Google has already considered.

Google demonstrated Duplex by showcasing a conversation between the AI system and a hairdresser.

Google says this is only the beginning.
