Listen To How Artificial intelligence Poses As A Human And Makes Phone Reservation

This is scary and awesome at the same time. Google’s new AI sounds like a human on the phone, and some experts say, we should be very worried.

During the last few years many companies have used the term “artificial intelligence” to talk about their virtual assistants, but let’s admit it, neither Siri nor other mobile phones ‘assistants’ really feel as smart as we expect.

However, the Google assistant has improved so much that ‘it’ can pass off as a human, and it’s kinda’ very scary and awesome at the same time.

Google’s AI

Google has recently presented the new version of Google Assistant, its intelligent virtual assistant, during the initial conference of Google I / O 2018.

Sundar Pichai wanted to demonstrate the capabilities of the platform, which now seems to be so far ahead of the competition that it tricks ordinary people into believing they are speaking with another human and not some creepy AI assistant.

During the demonstration, Google had the AI Assistant ask for an appointment in a hairdressing salon, and the conversation feels so natural that it is practically impossible to distinguish a real person from the AI.

Check out the video below and hold on to your seat.

If this isn’t scary then what is?

The intonation of the words by the AI, the expressions that it uses, the small doubts when “speaking,” simply put, Google has made a wonder.

However, many experts would definitely agree that what Google has achieved, as well as being surprising, is terrifying, especially if you have seen how science fiction movies involving artificial intelligence end.

It is noteworthy to mention that the new Google Assistant is still in development, so for now it has no arrival date to the public.

Now imagine combining Sophie, the creepy human robot, and Google’s AI assistant.

As noted by the verge, “if robots can freely pose as humans the scope for mischief is incredible; ranging from scam calls to automated hoaxes. One effect of AI phone calls might be to make us all a little bit ruder. If we can’t tell the difference between humans and machines on the phone, will we treat all phone conversations with suspicion?”

And they’ve got a point there, after all the possibilities are endless, despite the fact that there are more good sides than bad sides to it.

  1. THINGS ARE “PROGRESSING” WHERE AI ARE CREATING THEIR OWN LANGUAGES AND COMMUNICATING WITH OTHERS. THEY ALSO WILL REPRODUCE OTHER AI. THERE WILL BE ENTIRE HOSPITALS RUN BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. THERE WILL BE DOCTORS, NURSES, LAWYERS, YOU NAME IT. A SICK SOCIETY AND CIVILIZATION ALL PERVERTED, IS EXPECTED FOR ROBOTS TO MARRY ROBOTS AND ROBOTS TO MARRY HUMANS. MY DEARS, A SANE WORLD HAVE LONG PASSED!!!

      • The technology has been avaliable and “in use” for some time, It just hasn’t been noticed before, and now that it has, it is a concern?
        Technology moves forward, and to be honest, it is further advanced then we imagine.

      • For me personally I don’t want Google Assistant calling anybody on my behalf. I also don’t want something like Amazon Echo in my house or any smart appliances and I keep cell phone use to a minimum. I have no issue with technology I have an issue with brain dead lazy people who rely on it 24/7 only to become more lazy and stupid and have no issue giving up their privacy in order to do so.

        On a side note, I think the concept of a technological singularity is of serious concern.

      • You do have a point.

        Recently I bought a echo dot. My wife saw it and said “you bought a spy device?”, “yep, to go along with all the cellphones in the house”, I said.
        Well, the “dot” is still in the original packaging and has been moved to a box in storage.

        *** if the wife isn’t happy, nobody is happy

      • Honestly, I never intended to use it anyway. The technology might be useful someday. Kinda like having a computer with windows xp on it, so outdated by today’s standard but you never know.

        Once upon a time I swore I would never get a GPS system for my car, but then the thing (while not 100% accurate) has become a valuable navigation tool.

        Getting back to “the dot” who knows, maybe 50 years from now I can sell the thing for a profit. ***hmmmm

  3. I SO MUTUALLY AGREE WITH YOU. I AM A 64 YEAR OLD LADY, WHO DOES NOT WANT ANY ROBOT TO COOK FOR ME, AS I GET THE SATISFACTION KNOWING SOMEONE LOVES MY FOOD, AND I CAN COOK MUCH HEALTHIER. I LIKE DOING MY OWN LAUNDRY BECAUSE I CAN WATCH IT MYSELF, AS FAR AS CLEANING IT IS GOOD EXERCISE. I WILL GO AS FAR AS A SELF CLEANING OVEN, VACUUM CLEANER, VITA MIX, AND MICROWAVE, ANYTHING ELSE THEY CAN LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE WITH ALL OF THIS DEMONIC TECHNOLOGY. HUMANITY IS THROWING ITSELF A BOOMERRANG, AND IT IS GOING TO DO MORE THAN JUST BITE THEM ON THE REAR ENDS. HOW ABOUT ROBOT MURDER THE HOMEOWNER AND TAKE OVER THE HOUSE, AND BRING A COMMUNITY OF OTHER ROBOTS TOGETHER. THESE SO CALL INVENTIONS ARE ALREADY CREATING THEIR OWN LANGUAGES THAT WE CAN UNDERSTAND, AND ARE TEACHING OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.
