LG TVs to get Google Assistant and Voice Controls

Here is a list of some of the new features of Google Assistant that a user should know about.

It's great to see how far Google has come in terms of synthesizing voice, especially for a user's interactions with the Assistant. Among some of the additional features, users can now bid adieu to the robotic voice and say hello to six new voices-all to be rolled out later this year-including American singer-actor-songwriter John Legend's voice. Microsoft is trying to get a foothold, too, with its Cortana platform.

In 2014, Amazon developed a virtual assistant called Amazon Alexa that allows you to speak your wishes to an Echo smart speaker and watch the tasks getting done such as dimming your lights or playing music tracks. Android P is able to learn its user's behavior to predict what the next app, song or action might be on the smartphone. For example, "I haven't seen you" might be autocompleted to "I haven't seen you in a while and I hope you're doing well". That means any device connected to your Google account - whether it's your phone, tablet, or Google Home hardware - will feature this new tone. Rob pointed out that for many products it's hard to describe the item (e.g. the style of dress or handbag you want to find) and that's why eBay have invested heavily in Artificial Intelligence to power image search. Google co-founder Sergey Brin wrote artificial intelligence was the "most significant development in computing in my lifetime" and warned of safety concerns ranging from "the fears of sci-fi style sentience to the more near-term questions such as validating the performance of self-driving cars". That includes personal information, like appointments and interestes, along with information queries such as weather reports, sports statistics, and movie times.

Google's demo is one of the most innovative, forward-looking consumer tech innovations of the year.

Keep in mind that whether you got to this page via the Google Home app or the Google Assistant app, this will change the tone of voice for all your devices. The assistant added pauses, "ums" and "mmm-hmms" to its speech in order to sound more human as it spoke with real employees at a hair salon and a restaurant.

On the fantastic side, Google Duplex could be empowering for people with physical disabilities.

Google's deep learning models are better listeners, their ability to predict chances of medical events stems from their capability to read and crunch large amount of data including diagnosis, medications, and notes created by master diagnosticians who we otherwise call as doctors.

Google Maps gets a new tab called "For You", which shows new businesses in your area, plus recommendations based on what's trending. As deft as it was at handling the conversations (and again, it was very good), it surely would have been faster and easier for a human to call the place themselves.

Also, since Google Duplex tries to perfectly mimic a real human, there's the possibility someone will exploit that to manipulate people. In a business or political scenario, however, that's actually pretty scary.

Google Assistant: Umm, next Wednesday, at 6 pm.
