This week Google unveiled Duplex, a new AI technology for conducting natural conversations to carry out specific tasks over the phone. It even throws in the occasional “um…” to give the impression of natural human conversation. Duplex project lead wrote in an announcement, “The Google Duplex technology is built to sound natural, to make the conversation experience comfortable." At its core Duplex is a recurrent neural network, trained on a collection of anonymous phone conversation data.
