At the opening of Google's I/O event, the company showed off their new AI tool. In the demonstration, someone told the Google Assistant they wanted to book an appointment. Google found the hairdresser and then phoned them, holding a natural language conversation with a person to make the appointment and add it to a calendar. The party on the other end of the phone didn't know they were talking to a computer (so we're told). This opens up an interesting future.


Google I/O is the search giant's annual developer event. It kicks off overnight in Mountain View, California, just a day after Microsoft Build so they get a chance to not only announce their new products and services but also react to what's coming from the crowd in Seattle. So, what can we expect?
