Here’s Google’s AI Assistant Making A Phone Call And Acting Like A Human

Always one of its strong suits, Google announced it plans to go all in on artificial intelligence with the next iteration of Android and the products that run the operating system.

As a taste of that at Google IO, the company showed a video of its AI assistant booking an appointment over the phone — you know, just like a human assistant would.

Notice how human the voice sounds and how “she” responds to phrases like “Just gimme one second” with an agreeable and natural sounding “mhmm.” Cool, but also a little eerie.
