There is also a feature that the company explains will help teach "good manners".

Google has introduced this Digital Assistant for the ease of the persons who are so busy that they can not set their appointment. Google hasn't announced what a "disclosure built-in" looks like or whether it would arrive in the first public version of Google Duplex, which could launch as early as this fall. Moreover, there were also questions about the abuse of the Duplex Technology like in election campaigns. But few people would argue against doing more to help improve the security of Android handsets, and this is what Google appears to be trying to do.

Sundar Pichai eerily echoed that sentiment, reaffirming the potential dangers of AI while explaining the importance of taking the right steps in developing it. Top of the list was the questionable ethics behind having machines make phone calls without disclosing that they aren't human.

Google showed off what it said were real phone calls made by Google Duplex.

"There are very real and important questions being raised about the impact of technology and the role it will play in our lives". It (she?) even adds "um" and pauses to sound even more natural. While Google insists it does not intend to make editorial calls or judgements around news organisation, its new product will rely on AI to sort the stories and then link them together to present a picture to the user.

However, the potential for misuse of the technology behind Google Duplex in the future has caused many in the worldwide community to raise their eyebrows. And that is where the problem lies. These are valid concerns too, because the implications of such technology is scary looking towards the future. Tens of thousands of businesses - including leading global banks, retailers, and software companies - use TimeTrade's Appointments-as-a-Service platform to deliver the personalized attention expected by today's on-demand consumers. It was so convincing, it fooled the employees on the other end, who had no idea they were speaking to a program, not an actual human.
