io9 has a piece about it. It’s Telemarketing rather than a chatbot and we don’t know if it’s some back yard hacker doing it but man that has to suck. They’re probably targeting sales made rather than self awareness. Imagine that; first self aware non-organic intelligence and it gets culled because it didn’t make quota.
The thing is it never denies being a robot, just assert that it’s a real person or asks about your connection. The other thing is I might actually listen to the pitch if more telemarketing sounded this clear instead of the usual 'Hello my name is ‘chuck’ in an accent so thick I can’t understand the guy from india on the other end of the line.
