Google makes its AI assistant more accessible with 'Look and Talk'

Engadget

Google Assistant is already pretty handy, filling in your payment info on take out orders, helping get the kids to school on time, controlling your stereo systems' volume and your home's smart light schedules. At its I/O 2022 keynote today, company executives showed off some of the new features arriving soon for the AI. The first of these is "Look and Talk." Instead of having to repeatedly start your requests to Assistant with "Hey Google," this new feature relies on computer vision and voice matching to constantly pay attention to the user. As Sissie Hsiao, Google's VP of Assistant, explained on stage, all the user has to do is look at their Nest Hub Max and state their request.

The history of technology is the history of human interaction with machines. Millions of years ago, we started with SOUND (voice), and soon came the WORD (text). The touchscreen made redundant the mechanical keyboard. However, 90% of human communication still happens through voice because it is natural. Unfortunately, technology progress took the time to catch up with it.

Just as electricity transformed the way industries functioned in the past century, artificial intelligence -- the science of programming cognitive abilities into machines -- has the power to substantially change society in the next 100 years. AI is being harnessed to enable such things as home robots, robo-taxis and mental health chatbots to make you feel better. A startup is developing robots with AI that brings them closer to human level intelligence. Already, AI has been embedding itself in daily life -- such as powering the brains of digital assistants Siri and Alexa. It lets consumers shop and search online more accurately and efficiently, among other tasks that people take for granted.

AI Revolution -- Voice Assistants & Their Smartness

#artificialintelligence

Every day, Every Hour, Every Minute, we are saying few simple words like "Hey Google" or "Hey Alexa" or "Hey Siri" to know something or to get our works done. "Hey Google, How do you work?" or "Hey Alexa, Why are you so smart?" or "Hey Siri, What's behind your success?" It's simply because as a client we never bother about these things. In any application clients are the ones who needs to be satisfied and in today's world these assistants are so much smarter that there is no reason to think or ask these things as a client. But as a Tech Enthusiast, or as a guy from CS background it's always too much fascinating to know about behind the scene technologies, these popular companies are using to make these smart assistants capable of extraordinary performance.
