The future is already here – voice assistant, bot, robot…

The future is already here

A curious incident occurred in one of the Russian cities.

A bot of one of the mobile operators made a call to one of the subscribers in order to offer services in a new tariff scale. His call was answered by a voice assistant who, after talking to the bot, eventually answered him: “good.” The bot took this word as consent, and transferred the subscriber’s phone to a new tariff grid, connecting new services with the consent of the voice assistant. Ultimately, the mobile network operator apologized and compensated the subscriber for his loss. But this ridiculous event shows how close we are to various futurological scenarios.
