Google has come up with a breakthrough technology that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) for casual conversations. It is all set to enhance Google Assistant’s capabilities to the next level of human-like conversations. Google has built LaMDA on its Transformer open-source neural network architecture, usually used in predictive software. It is trained on dialogue and could even pick open-ended sentences during training.
Conversations LaMDA has displayed yet have not been programmed by Google. Instead, they were triggered by open-ended commands. LaMDA has proven its ability to switch from one topic to another, just like in any human conversation.
According to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, the LaMDA AI can find initial uses in schooling, as it will surely charm kids. LaMDA is undoubtedly going to have a notable impact on conversational AI, specifically Google Assistant.
Sensibleness and specificity aren’t the only qualities Google wants in LaMDA. It is also exploring prospects to make LaMDA replies interesting, insightful, unexpected, or witty. Google is also very consciously trying to ensure that LaMDA’s responses aren’t just compelling but correct. The LaMDA AI (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) is still in the development stage. Google plans to expose it for 3rd party testing soon.
