Google Duplex assistant is coming to more states and restaurants

Google Duplex is created to help people book a table at a restaurant without actually talking to anyone.

The feature is only available to Pixel phone users right now, but will roll out to the iPhone and other Android devices in the "next few weeks", according to a blog post from Scott Huffman, vice president of engineering for Google Assistant.

Saying "OK Google" is already more syllables than are required to wake up competing smart assistants like Alexa.

That's all in the future. Thankfully, Google is bringing Continued Conversations to the Home Hub and other Smart Displays (via Android Central).

Google Duplex, a human-sounding artificial intelligence (AI) that can make a restaurant reservation for you over the phone, is coming soon to iPhones. Not just by doing a menial task, but by imitating human speech idiosyncrasies on the fly, inserting "umm" and "yeah" like American English speakers are wont to do.

Gerald Butts full statement to the Commons justice committee on SNC-Lavalin
Butts today outlined the circumstances surrounding a cabinet shuffle necessitated by the sudden resignation of Mark Brison. According to Wilson-Raybould's account, Butts said the statute was passed by Harper and that he doesn't like the law.

As you can see from the video, after the Assistant is done answering you, it will remain in the top left corner of the display.

When it unveiled the most sophisticated Assistant feature ever created a year ago, Google made quite a few waves.

It can also ask basic information about the business such as whether or not the business is open for a holiday or if the hours arent listed on Google Maps. Whether or not that has been the case with every single call made by Duplex is unknown, but Google seems confident.

Smart Displays, like the Google Home Hub and Lenovo Smart Display, are great. After the event, Google clarified to say that the AI assistant would identify itself at the start of a call.
