AI-powered assistants and chatbots may be smart about the things they know (which they Google for) or can control (by sending hubs to do the work). They are, however, not so smart when holding a conversation. Talking to one is more like a Q&A interrogation rather than talking to someone really smart. Microsoft’s XiaoIce, however, might be able to fool you. Microsoft’s researchers and engineers are proudly boasting how the chatbot has reached the next level of intelligence by gaining full duplex capabilities.
