Google Duplex is a tool developed by Google that would, in theory, call any site and, with a human voice, perform any type of order. The trick is that behind the human voice, there is no living being, but an artificial intelligence. This has created a controversy around the ethics of letting a person talk to an AI believing that he is another human being.
“Duplex will allow an AI to imitate a human voice to perform the orders that are asked.”
Now, Google has rectified, and has said that their AI will be identified at the beginning of their interventions as long as they involve some kind of verbal communication. Duplex was shown at the I / O conference, in which Google presented its latest advances, and given the turmoil aroused, it has become clear that what was seen at the conference was just a demo.
At the moment, Google Duplex is in development, and according to Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, Duplex has a system that will make it identify before any verbal communication. The new product includes in its language processing software expressions like “uh” of doubt, and other colloquial sounds. This makes it sound unequivocally human.
In the I / O, the Duplex AI “tricked” the saleswoman of a hairdresser, in which she made an appointment, posing as a human. Technological gurus have seen this with great alarm, as advances in AI always have dark implications.
From Google ensure that when your product is integrated with Google Assitant, which will do in testing mode throughout this summer, who has a climate of transparency, both by the developers themselves and users who use Duplex.
