Google has announced a series of new products and upgrades in its product portfolio imbued with artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities in the recently organized annual developers conference, I/O.
Google says the technology is called VPS, or visual positioning system. The user was asked for the details relating the appointment and the Assistant did the job for them by providing details and answering all the questions and later informed the user. For example, you can say "Make me a haircut appointment on Tuesday morning anytime between 10 and 12".
What that means is that Google Duplex can automatically make reservations on your behalf, by dialling up the establishment in question (such as a restaurant) and then conversing with the real person on the other end of the line to make the booking.
LG is finally bringing Google Assistant to its 2018 OLED and SUPER UHD TVs with ThinQ AI. The assistant's intonation was flawless, with the machine throwing in some natural "umm" s and "hmmm" s before it answered.
There are a lot of really cool announcements coming out of the Google AI conference, including an impressive autocomplete system on Gmail that'll save you the effort of ever having to personalize messages to your closest friends again.More news: Saudi Arabia Says It Will Build Nuclear Bomb if Iran Does

As you type, Smart Compose pops up suggestions about what you might want to write next - similar to Google autocomplete.
The features will be rolled out this week. Starting today, we're rolling out Custom Routines, which allow you to create your own Routine with any of the Google Assistant's one million Actions, and start your routine with a phrase that feels best for you. Google said its new chip would be eight times more powerful than the chip it introduced previous year. Most users interact with Google Assistant via voice and through development with WaveNet, which was announced 18 months ago, Google has added six new voices for users to choose from for their assistant.
Machines that can use these complicated algorithms to sort through vast quantities of data are what makes AI super cool, and super customised, too, and this week at Google I/O, when it wasn't showing off all the great things Android P will do, Google was talking up some of the incredible ways it is making AI special this year. Google Duplex is the highlight of the keynote that demonstrated how far the company has advanced its voice-based AI to make calls like a human.
Google has unveiled its newly revamped news offering, providing access to paid content on any device and artificial intelligence to organise the "flow of information". The service will first be available in Phoenix, Arizona, where Waymo has been testing its vehicles in recent years.
