    A solution for this would be to wait for Google (or any of them really) to be known that soon the phones and digital assistants are capable of making a call and an appointment or whatever and it could start with a line like 'Hi, i'm Google Assistant calling for John Hancock and would like to make a reservation' when people are ready for that, until then keep it as it is and keep upgrading it. And there's nothing scary about it, there's a bunch of kill switches i presume.

    I love the duplex thing. And i think it doesnt care if somebody knows on forehand, they talk to a computer. If they dont know, why would they care? Its irrelevant. Just do your job. Somebody/something is trying to make an appoitment. Do you job, and hang the phone. Who cares.

    The scary (and exciting) part isn't that you might be speaking to a chatbot, it's when your chatbot starts having phone conversations with other people's chatbots. The girls at the salon and the restaurant had better start looking for new jobs.
    Progress won't be stopped. Don't complain, re-train.

    This is all great, but the one problem I see with the AI voice, is the “ummm”...
    ....that is not proper English, nor should anyone include or adapt these “bridge words” into the English language. It is unnecessary & an unintelligent way of speaking.

    If you don't want to call for a haircut to talk to an actual human and use this system u are a piece of shit. Make a god damn phone call you self important fuck. The tech is impressive and could be used in other ways then allowing this shit ''uber''(most people that use uber are entitled fucks) generation to avoid even more human contact.

    What if the other end is managed by some other AI ?
    Google Assistant calling to make an appointment for haircut on monday 10 to 12
    Google Assistant: Hey ! Umm i would like to make an appointment for a haircut on monday between 10am to 12 noon
    Alexa on the other side
    Alexa: Umm, let me check. The closet i have is a 2 o clock
    Google: do you have anything between 10am and 12 noon
    Alexa: what service does she need ?
    Google: Just a haircut for now
    Alexa: i think i have a 10 o clock available
    Google: that's great.

    I don't see why people should know if they talk to a human or ai.
    You don't need to know the gender, wealth, nationality of the person who calls you - so you don't need to know if its a real or a artificial intelligence. It's about the content of the conversation, not weather its a conversation between 2 humans, 1human 1ai, or 2ai's.

      It could instantly diagnose and choose the correct treatment, but a depressed person needs human contact. Same with every person with a mental illness. A machine won't ever replace that.

    I have *really* bad anxiety -- when I have to call people, I tend to stammer a lot, and sometimes I forget what I was even going to say -- so I'm all about the idea of Google Assistant scheduling appointments and making reservations for me. HOWEVER, a) I think that it should definitely let the person know on the front end: "Hello, this is Google Assistant calling on behalf of [Name]" or what have you. I'm fine with talking to a robot, as long as I KNOW that I am. Also, b) employees should be informed by their management that Google Assistant is A Thing, and should be expected to interact with it appropriately if and when a customer uses it to make a phone call for them. So that's my two cents. :)

    I don't know that my biggest concern is service workers so much as it is the possibility of that tech being used in scams and whether Google has any actual responsibility for that aspect. I get scam calls now from robots and they're really easy to ignore because it doesn't sound real to native speakers but lots of people are already taken advantage of

  • key arca
    key arca Month ago

    I don't really see a valid defence towards not implementing something like Google Duplex. All it is doing is making a very simple call to make an appointment or find quick information. There is no difference in you or a robot making the call. It saves your time, and as some people have said in the comments, some people don't know how to communicate properly over the phone so it makes it easier for the buisness as well (they don't have to deal with difficult customers). Also since when did we have morals dictating that people must know if they are talking to a robot or not. Idk I just don't get the concern. Plus as Marques said, the fact that you don't know makes the coversation seamless. I guess the only compromise would be to create partnerships with buisnesses so that google assistant can only call places who have agreed to it.

    "Among the most viable of all economic delusions is the belief that machines on net balance create unemployment. Destroyed a thousand times, it has risen a thousand times out of its own ashes as hardy and vigorous as ever. "
    Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson
    This is a line from a book published in 1946... The PDF is freely available all over the place. Read the book or just read the section on "automation destroying jobs" and it will quickly dispel all worry that this is a legitimate concern...

    My question is about "how far is this going":
    What happens, when the hair saloon or the restaurant does not employ a human assistant, but uses google duplex as a receptionist and a google duplex user calls? What happens when the two AI talks to each other about their human users? Are the gonna talk still by human voice or change to some kind of machine language? Or are they going to talk about how rude humans are to them?
    Or are they gonna talk about if they don't even need humans?

    I turn google assistant off on all of my devices because I seen that it actually saves what you say every time you say something to it..... its in the online google settings somewhere I forget... You gotta dig pretty deep as you would expect and it is always set to on as you would expect too.... so that they can trick you into accepting them to allow them to track and listen to what you say.... Fk off google.

    The ones being called could feel like they wasted time and effort trying to network and build a rapport with a prospective return customer, secretary, or broker if they find out after the fact. If they knew it was a robot, they could still make the appointment, without building up their own expectations of adding a contact when they actually weren't.

    Robot assistants will never be forced to declare their non-human status.
    People never want their assistants (human or not) to run into a problem that inly "the boss" can fix. So a seemlessly human sounding assistant is the only way to go.
    Eventually the entire senate and house and every elected official will have an AI assistant. So they will never vote in any law that will impede the very thing that gives them even more freedom.

    This has very little to do with the Turing test - let alone 'passing' it. The evaluator in the proposed Turing test is aware that he/she interacts with a human and a computer (or several of each) and he/she has to communicate in a manner which deliberately attempts to expose the computer. Such questions will typically involve a high level of abstraction and 'traps' which a computer are prone to fall for (irony, word plays, constructs designed to expose self-contradiction etc). Oppositely, a fairly narrow, predictable and factual range of questions will inevitably be asked when booking a haircut appointment.

    I think if they add something at the beginning like...
    "Hi there, I'm [insert name]'s Google Assistant, I would like to book a salon appointment for him/her"
    ...this is more ethical in technology and design terms.
    This ensures the person at the other end knows it is an AI, as well as keeping the continuity of the conversation (especially with the way Google Assistant is speaking im the demo, really incredible)
