Every command you speak to "OK Google" travels from your Android Phone to a Google data center, will be "translated" in a command which is executed on your phone on your home network with your local running MediaMonkey and music collection?
There is no transfer of music in this process other then from your local source (own music files) to your phone, right?
Do you know if some kind of music metadata will be transferred from your files to Google?
Do you know what exactly Googles collects (beside your obvious command "Play Fleetwood Mac Dreams")?
Probably a handful of people fully understand Google AI process ...But your initial assessment is probably correct.
When you say OK Google your following request for information is digitized and sent to a Google Server. There the voice command is translated and subjected to semantic premapping to roughly figure out what kind of request it is.
If the premapper detects that it is a request to play music from a local music library it then sends the information to a second premapper that figures out which parts are artist and which parts are song .... it does this by cross referencing to their own database of songs and artists. The finished request is then sent back as both a command to play a track directed to the MM apk AND a command and voice data to say which song and artist was chosen.
Actually this could be made (but isn't actually) a 2 step communication process with the premapper identifying a request that may be a request for playing a local music track. Then Google sends a request to search the local Android catalog for Artist and song .... based on my use it seems that this would be the only way the premapper could with certainty identify a request to play a local track. But certainly is not required so Google just parses it's own song database and wings it.... It is usually right...
Google may also build a in house database entry of the songs on any device that uses Android ....... for their own purposes .... All songs on a device are cataloged by Android and all that would need to be sent was this catalog for them to know what you have ...... but the logistics of using this for Google Now are impossible.
Considering the accuracy of this in my hands at least ..... it is a very very impressive feat of AI ..... far more complex than it seems. It is the first mainstream full AI product.
And yes it is full AI ......
The question is no longer "Do computing devices have AI?" It is now "Do computing devices has AI comparable to our intelligence?...
