Google's AI Assistant will soon make calls and book appointments on your behalf.
Listening to to it interact with the person on the other end, who apparently had no idea she was speaking to a machine, the AI managed to book an hair dresser's appointment for the following week, at a specific time, and it managed to do so navigating through complications without screwing up.
I bet there's still a few problems with it right now, but over time this will work perfectly.
It also raises the prospect of even more annoying cold callers. I get way more of those now than actual people calling my house phone.
