Question  Creepy A.I. Lying Robot, or soundboard ?
These guys at Time magazine kept calling a nice Artificial Intelligence telemarketing "lady". They tried to trick "her" by asking questions like "What vegetable is tomato soup made from?"

What say you? Is this a creepy A.I. lying robot, or an Indian at a soundboard?

RE: Creepy A.I. Lying Robot, or soundboard ?
It sounds more like they have a series of recorded samples, and when the customer asks a question the agent can click the appropriate response and have it played, and can stop it when a customer interrupts. In essence, this can seriously cut down on liability for the corporation since agents now don't have to exert as much control over their actions toward customers.

It's an utter abomination, and will only help to propel humanity further into darkness. It severely restricts the human component of customer service.

UPDATE: There's plenty of theories on this. I suspect the company was not ready for the increased business if the line was busy and site was offline.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.

Yeah, I listened to this earlier today, and although I didn't think of it then, I'm now thinking soundboard.
