Google Duplex: An AI System for Accomplishing Real-World Tasks via Phone

It's big tech co conference time, and the announcement that's generating the most buzz is Google's Duplex. If you haven't heard of it, take 4:12 and watch Sundar give the demo (below).

I'm quite impressed by how natural the interactions feel; I don't think I could tell I was talking to a robot, which presents a real moral question: is it ok for machines to impersonate humans? Must such machines declare that they are machines? There's a great summary of the conversations currently occurring on this topic here.
