Google realizes that Facebook Messenger has, currently, no rivals in terms of online chat applications. As can gain nonetheless some relevance when people want to talk to someone, Google decided to implement a chat application where people can talk to the AI from the Mountain View Company.
Google understands its impotence to become relevant on the market of popular apps for people who want to stay connected with chat programs such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. As a result, Google decided to draw unpopular and lonely people who would not mind in their solitude to talk to a robot.
However, do not skip to weep for mercy for Google, or its lonely customers. It is true that they actually speak with “walls” but those walls happen to be one of the most advanced artificial intelligence in the world. According to The Verge, users of the chat system will open a conversation with a chatbot, chat or answering machine, asking for information, advice, instructions and anything similar to Google to help customers in everyday life.
Chat robots from the giant American company do not have a gender or a name, at least not now, but it try to emulate as closely as a human language and provide the most accurate information of interest. At this moment, Facebook is testing a chatbot of its own, similarly named Facebook M, but it remains to be seen how it will compare to the one from Google when the latter will be introduced.
As artificial intelligence becomes increasingly more flexible, we would not be surprised if in the near future not to need a human partner so that we can discuss interesting things over the Internet. Think only about how many things you could talk to an intelligent Google chatbot, which has all Wikipedia (and others) at its fingertips.
