Google has a new scary smart function that can check its users’ e-mails and provide fast responses to deliver based on their content. The intelligent reply function will be launched for Android and iOS operating system customers via the Inbox by Gmail applications these days. The option can analyze all texts of incoming e-mails and then provide three replies that customers can select to deliver as a fast response.
The program works based on a couple of recurrent sensory systems, which is software created following our mind pattern and the human capacity of assimilating information. The more someone uses a certain function, the more this program will learn about the reactions users tend to select over others, enabling it to provide more customized recommendations.
One sensory program encodes all inbound e-mails and is able to estimate possible reactions, while the second is capable to take those details and create a series of grammatically correct replies using terminology that is familiar to the users.
The purpose of the application is to help customers to respond to e-mails from their smart phones or other mobile gadgets by simply choosing an appropriate reply, as the company’s’ specialists have stated in a recent article on Google website. They said that this function preserves customer privacy and nowhere down the line employees ever read e-mails containing personal details.
Fine-tuning such complex functions require some human involvement at one point or another to supervise the whole process. Experts affirmed that assessments of the beta version of the app offered “I love you” as the best reply to almost all e-mails.
It seems that replies like “Thanks”, “It is all good” or “I love you” are extremely common and the program will choose them as the best reply if it is uncertain about various circumstances. Normalizing the chance of a certain response by some evaluation of that reply’s prior possibility made the program to estimate reactions that were not only extremely likely to happen, but they also had a high accuracy according to the original e-mail. This created a les personal, but a lot more useful e-mail assistant.
