The future of telephone scams - "Powered By Google"

from here

I think this might actually be the real story behind why Google Duplicity-I-mean-Duplex was designed to trick people into thinking they were talking to a real person - because the people making it were too busy trying to see if they could that they didn't stop to think if they should.

And I'm pretty sure this technology will eventually enable the automation of telephone scams, which won't be good for anybody (other than the scammers).
