When Fast Company asked a Google representative about whether or not Duplex would definitely identify itself as a bot, it got an interesting reply to the simple "yes or no" question - The Google rep only repeated the same line given in the blog post: "We'll be experimenting with the right approach over the coming months".
Betting big on AI, Pichai said there's a huge opportunity for this technology to transform many fields. Additionally, users will be able to subscribe to their favourite publishers with their Google account and thanks to the new Subscribe with Google platform (launched as a part of the Google News Initiative in March), will get access to their paid content everywhere-on all platforms and devices, on Google News, Google Search, and on publishers' own websites.
This ethical tension could be partly resolved if Duplex was required to announce that a computer is on the phone calls, but Google has been vague and will not confirm if Duplex will be made to self-disclose. Don't forget to let us know in the comments if you can test out this new Assistant voices.
Even more natural than the above phone call.
Google Duplex is the missing link between the Google Assistant and any business, because it enables the Assistant to get information that isn't available digitally. Each one is a different pitch and speed might vary slightly between voices.
First, Google Assistant dialed up a hairdresser and booked an appointment "on behalf of a client". Google has added three male voices and three female voices. Can you guess which one is the musician? He further added, "We wish to provide users the best quality sources and relevant news publication they trust".
But the problem with the demo was clear: The Assistant tried to mimic human speech and thus represented an attempt to fool the person on the other end of the phone.
In the demonstration, Google Duplex scheduled a hair cut and made a dinner reservation while sounding and acting as if it were a real human. "The wonderful thing is that Assistant can actually understand the nuances of conversation", he said.
The dinner reservation was extremely impressive, as the Assistant had to understand someone with a strong accent.
At its core, Google Duplex is based on deception. Algorithmically we try and sort opinion vs news. Google is focusing more on the visual side for the Assistant. Just blurting our requests to these virtual companions. What the "Googlers" did instead was to announce feature after feature and tweak after tweak to the Google Assistant, Gmail, Android, Photos, Maps and tech in self-driving cars.
The idea here is to strive towards a more friendly and polite household, conversation, and lifestyle. Hours of stories, games and songs will be available for any household that embraces Google Home. It will predict what someone might want to say in a reply and suggest options.

As in previous years, the company unveiled a feature before it was ready. Users can accept the completion by hitting tab. Google's AI smarts have outsmarted all other players in the realm, exhibiting jaw-dropping capabilities.
If you're like me you hate using the hotword "Ok, Google" or "Hey, Google" over and over again to interact with the Assistant or your smart speakers. Google researchers say it can "talk" only in exchanges with strict limits on what can be said.
