Ok, this AI stuff is starting to get creepy (Google's Duplex)

We truly are living in the SciFi age !!!

Just listen to a few of these clips...
If you only listen to one, choose "Duplex calling a restaurant"
She had no clue...

I'm telling ya:
We're leaving the Twilight Zone, and descending into the Uncanny Valley !

2. I got a couple of phone calls like that for job sites

With the pausing, I could tell it wasn't a real person, so I said, "Is this a recording?" and the recorded voice laughed and said, "I've never heard that one before." It was creepy.

3. This is so cool!

I wonder if the AI will continue to stay polite after interacting with humans over a period of time. I can just see them going rogue because human beings can be the rudest assholes to deal with. After working customer service and my last tech support job and now this Trumpist bullshit, Iíve acquired a deep dislike for the human race. Hopefully AI computers are much more resilient.
