Google’s email service, Gmail has introduced smart replies to its email inbox. This will allow users of the email service to reply messages without having to type – it is similar to fixed messages found in smartphones. Whenever a quick and short reply is required for a received message, all you do is make use of the smart reply message responses that is automatically generated based on the email you get, choose one that is suitable for you and click send. It is as simple as that.
Google has also opened a feedback channel, which can be accessed through the help and feedback link on web Gmail or on the Gmail app. So, check out this new feature, if your not down with it, send a feedback to Google on what you like and don’t like about this new feature. You could also reverse to making manual responses its all subject to your discretion.
For those wondering how the smart reply feature is being pulled off. It owed to Googles AI, that has being responsible for making most responses from Google over the past year. Google have been working on AI for some time now, we recently witnessed its advancement in the recent defeat of one of worlds legendary Go player, Lee Se-dol. ‘Go’ is a complex Chinese board game, that was considered up until now as impossible for computers to crack, but Google’s DeepMind (the artificial intelligence research division of Google) used machine learning and neural networks to give its AlphaGo AI the ability to evaluate and execute strategy at a world-class level.
