Duplex is created to operate in very specific use cases, and now we're focused on testing with restaurant reservations, hair salon booking, and holiday hours with a limited set of trusted testers.
Duplex could be used to handle "simple and repetitive customer calls while humans step in when the conversations get more complicated", according to the report.
Google Duplex is a technology that's created to work for people, not take their jobs - at least, according to Google. Earlier this year, Google Cloud Speech-to-Text received a major overhaul focused on optimizing phone call transcription uses. What wasn't touched on was the possibility that Duplex may have a use on the other side of the line, taking over for call centre employees and telemarketers.
According to the report, some big global companies are already in the early stages of testing the Google Duplex AI technology for use in their own applications like call centers to answer consumers' questions.
Man who challenged black mom at pool loses job
To prove she was a resident, Edwards handed officers her pool key, which they then used to open the pool gate with no issue. A phone message for the man was not returned, and the woman who posted the video on Facebook also didn't return a message.
The company this afternoon denied The Information's report on "very early stage" testing of Duplex for call centers. Amazon, IBM, Microsoft and Cisco are all in the market of automated agents and if they can crack a populist version of the Turing Test, then we could find a lot of our interactions that seem human are in fact the work of digital ghosts. That would be devastating for a nation like the Philippines, which has an estimated 1.2 million call-centre workers according to the Wall Street Journal.
While Google's statement indicates that it is more concerned with personal voice assistant applications right now, it does not rule out pursuing enterprise customers in the future. Just last week, Google better detailed Duplex's disclosure mechanism and the calling experience that businesses will hear. Some folks found the Duplex demo was scary as hell and anxious about the ethical concerns of AI basically faking people out by pretending to be human.
However the company has admitted that the ethical concerns that overshadowed the original presentation have slowed work on the project, this person said.
