Google’s mobile software is inching closer to becoming a true personal assistant, with the coming integration of an upcoming feature called Smart Reply.
Google’s Inbox email app will soon be able to answer your emails, by suggesting a few short replies based on the content of the email you received, Google announced today in a blog post. The responses aren’t complex (yet), mainly consisting of phrases like “We’ll be there” or “I’ll check on it.”
The neural net really wanted to tell everyone “I love you.”
Smart Reply uses deep learning, a stab at artificial intelligence. Over time, the machine will learn more and more about language, and how you like to respond to emails. So how does this all work? (Warning: it’s about to get computer science-y.)
