Google’s AI sounds like a human on the phone — should we be worried?

Ok, so I’m equally excited and concerned by this AI demo.

James Vincent writes for The Verge:

The most impressive demo at Google I/O was a phone call to book a haircut. This call wasn’t made by a human, but by the Google Assistant, which did an uncannily good job of asking the right questions, pausing in the right places, and even throwing in the odd “mmhmm” for realism.

You have to hear this AI phone call for yourself! There’s a video of the demo embedded in this post.
