Perhaps one of the first “bot laws”, chat bots that live, and interact with those that live, in California will be required to announce that they are robots. I guess they’re getting too advanced for some to know the difference. Imagine, unknowingly, having an amazing conversation with a bot, then learn that it was a bot. Would you still value the conversation?
Google Duplex (aka the personal assistant bot) is a game changer. Especially if it’s engineered to answer incoming calls to your mobile, in addition to making them. I can’t wait for my personal assistant bot to go head-to-head with a robo telemarketer bot. Good thing mobile plans have unlimited calling, it could get expensive.
