LG brings Google Assistant to its 2018 ThinQ TVs powered by webOS

Google | Mountain View CA | Turtix

All are powered by Google's ever-developing artificial intelligence or AI technology. Google Maps will now be able to colorize a black and white photo, if you have one from the retro times, and edit it to perfection for you. The feature acts as a personal assistant that can make calls and schedule appointments for you.

"Will children be able to use these agents and receive calls from them?"

Legend and the rest of these features should arrive later, but for now, immerse yourself in the insane cool abilities of Google Duplex helping Google Assistant to make its conversation come to life for real in the video above.

This ethical tension could be partly resolved if Duplex was required to announce that a computer is on the phone calls, but Google has been vague and will not confirm if Duplex will be made to self-disclose. "We don't want to pretend to be a human", designer Ryan Germick said when discussing the digital assistant at a developer session earlier on Wednesday.

"We need to be thoughtful about how we have this interaction while we're experimenting with it", Matias said. The most exciting part of the keynote at Google I/O was the demonstration of Google Duplex.

"We know the path ahead needs to be navigated carefully and deliberately", he said.

It was a sign that despite Google's attempts to rectify its own mistakes, it continued to make new ones, not predicting problems that may arise.

There are several new changes to Google Photos. Based on what we're seeing, however, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are putting Apple's Siri in a serious catch up position.

If the tech giant doesn't address growing concerns about smartphone use, it could suffer damage to its reputation as well as stock market value, the institutional investors said. But the Google's AI can call you and you wouldn't even realize that you are talking to a bot or a tool.

For better navigation, Google announced a new version of Maps that will bring augmented reality to your phone.

The move signals how Google has increasingly focused a lot of its R&D on breaking new ground across the many facets of AI. Now, it appears Google Play Movies is finally adding the functionality...

Pichai also preached responsible internet consumption, or "digital well-being". It's rolling out gradually this week and will be available to everyone on Android, iOS and the web in 127 countries by next week. After the time limit expires, the app is grayed out as a visual reminder for users to stop using it. Users can set the time for the phone to wind down, and it will turn into "Do Not Disturb" mode and fades the colors into grayscale once the time is up.

Pichai's careful tone seemed to share his predecessors' opinion, in their annual letter to investors last April, about AI.

Bryan Lynn wrote this story for VOA Learning English, based on information from Google and reports from the Associated Press. As Google Principal Scientist Greg Corrado made clear at a Wednesday keynote addressing the future of artificial intelligence, what we saw Tuesday is only the beginning.

A few months ago, Google added six new routines to the Google Assistant, which basically meant you could accomplish multiple tasks with a single command. After all, the very fact of fake news, information overload, and the dilution of trust in media has been in part enabled by Google itself - by its search algorithm, its autocomplete controversies, conspiracy theories on YouTube, and more.
