How does Google Duplex work?

Google Duplex is a new software that allows a user to make a phone call by simply speaking to Google Assistant. The assistant makes use of natural language processing technology to understand the conversation and will respond as if the user is talking to a human.

Google Duplex is currently being tested with a limited number of users and is still in development. However, it has the potential to change the way we use phones.

Google Duplex is a two-step process. First, the user has to set up a Google Duplex account. This account will store information about the phone call, including the location and calendar information.

Second, the user has to initiate the call by talking to Google Assistant. Based on the stored information, the voice assistant can identify the person on the other end of the call and will start the call using that person's voice.

Google Duplex is still in the development stages but already receiving good feedback. The Google Duplex could be improved by making it handle more complex conversations and multiple calls at the same time.

How does Amazon Alexa work?

Have you ever been in a room and all of the sudden the lights turn on or the TV turns on by itself? That's what happens with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. It is their ability to sense voice commands and then do something based on those commands that makes these devices classified as smart speakers.

For example, say you're in your living room and you want to turn on the TV. You can simply issue a voice command to Alexa to turn on the radio or TV and it will do it. Or to Google assistant to play your favourite movie or series if you have a Google Home.

But how does all of this work?

First, the voice assistant needs to be able to understand what you're saying. That means it needs to have a “machine learning” algorithm that is constantly learning and adapting to your voice.  It is not until the voice assistant understands what you're saying, that it can then do the task you asked it to. For that reason, you must ensure that you train your voice assistant with the same commands every time you use it.

How does Apple Siri work?

Among the most popular and widely used voice assistants in the current market, Apple's Siri comes at the top. Apple first introduced Siri with the iPhone 4 release. Over time, they have improved it with each successive release.

Siri is powered by the voice recognition technology built into apple devices and it uses natural language processing to understand what you are saying. Siri requires not training on how to use it, you just need to issue the commands by speaking them out and Siri will do what you ask.
