Now Google has come up with the cutting-edge technology called WaveNet which is an artificial brain. Using statistical data samples, it responds to a query in a real human voice from the samples it has been fed with. And the genius brains have succeeded in producing the responding voice near about 50% of the original human voice. Moreover, it will be adorned with human emotions, pitch, and tone to make it richer in experience.

For example,
- Appointment to a hair-cut salon was scheduled by the Google AI. The person replying on the phone hardly had any idea that he was talking to a machine.
- Likewise, another demo was for the reservation of a table at a restaurant.
Both of these examples show the possibility of the development of the AI acting more and more smartly. Undoubtedly, Google’s duplex AI will be a step ahead due to their efforts is directed towards bringing in the high-end technology in day-to-day life.
