Natural Language Processing is taking over the world of technology. Google Assistant, Siri or any kind of ChatBot like Natasha from Hike are some examples of NLP use. However, these do not completely work on the NLP!
However, Google Duplex is a good example of the application of NLP. If you have seen Google I/O properly then you must know what Google Duplex is. However, if you don’t know what it is, then please read on.
What Is Google Duplex?
Google Duplex was first announced by Google CEO Sundar Pichai in the year 2018. He showed how one can easily use it to book a service anywhere by using his or her device. The device does the booking through phone calls, or whatever required without the user needing to talk over the phone.
It takes it one step further from Google Assistant. It not only shows the services that are available nearby but it book the service for us on instruction. In short, all this is possible because of Natural Language Processing technology. NLP helps in understanding the human language and thereby provide the output in the same language.
When Will You Be Able To Use Google Duplex On Your Device?
Google Duplex is something which is still under work. It will still take a few years for us to use it. However, if you are from the US then you can use this. Google has already launched the Duplex in several places like:-
- New York
- San Francisco
What Are The Limitations Of Google Duplex?
Nothing is perfect, everything comes with limitations and so does this amazing AI technology. Some of the cons that you may have to face with the Google Duplex are as follows:-
- You cannot record the calls that Google duplex makes for you.
- You have no liberty to interfere with the Google Duplex call when it’s actually going.
- Google will inform the person on the call about the AI.
Google Duplex is a promise that in the near future your device will assist you in talking for you. You will get a personal assistant who will do a few of your jobs like taking phone calls for you. As it is based on Natural Language Processing or NLP mechanism, there will be no robot talk!
