Axios is asking questions about Google's recent telephone conversation AI that is showed off on stage at its recent event, and they are not convinced that it was legit. Is it FAKE NEWS! Bottom line: Google may well have created a lifelike voice assistant that we'll all eventually use to complete mundane tasks like appointment scheduling. It also might be close to creating such a thing, but not quite there yet. Or it was partially staged. Or something else entirely. We just don't know, because Google won't answer the questions.
