I think they should call this one Jack Benny, but it looks like the same one as was playing the brass:

So will we have any original music anymore or just perfectly replicated Bach and Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida?

I will prefer live music of live people, over a recording, or Disney animatronics.

“Onstage at I/O 2018, Google showed off a jaw-dropping new capability of Google Assistant: in the not too distant future, it’s going to make phone calls on your behalf. CEO Sundar Pichai played back a phone call recording that he said was placed by the Assistant to a hair salon. The voice sounded incredibly natural; the person on the other end had no idea they were talking to a digital AI helper. Google Assistant even dropped in a super casual “mmhmmm” early in the conversation.

Pichai reiterated that this was a real call using Assistant and not some staged demo. “The amazing thing is that Assistant can actually understand the nuances of conversation,” he said. “We’ve been working on this technology for many years. It’s called Google Duplex.”

Duplex really feels like next-level AI stuff, but Google’s chief executive said it’s still very much under development. Google plans to conduct early testing of Duplex inside Assistant this summer “to help users make restaurant reservations, schedule hair salon appointments, and get holiday hours over the phone.”

Pichai says the Assistant can react intelligently even when a conversation “doesn’t go as expected” and veers off course a bit from the given objective. “We’re still developing this technology, and we want to work hard to get this right,” he said. “We really want it to work in cases, say, if you’re a busy parent in the morning and your kid is sick and you want to call for a doctor’s appointment.” Google has published a blog post with more details and soundbites of Duplex in action.”

I'm not especially surprised, this was coming soon, anyway. AI will be taking jobs that few people realized before, such as stand-up comedian, maybe. I haven't yet seen a comedy-bot, but I expect to before long.

An AI will be able to do all the posts on all the blogs/forums in real time, and be more intelligent than the monkeys currently doing it.

Pretty impressive, if there isn't a midget inside of it!  "For many of the shows, the Daleks were operated by retired ballet dancers wearing black socks while sitting inside the Dalek."

Surprised you weren't the first to post this

It could be partly tele-operated from outside (particularly the stopping to jump over the log part).

I guess great minds really do think alike! I was just about to post that very video, but you beat me to it. So instead, here are these:

Since we can synthesize dead actors, and have them make new movies without paying them, why both with a robot for entertainment?

I would have killed that dog immediately and without hesitation.  Someone loved that cat.  Pets that kill other pets do not fit in society.  Any one or anything that kills one of my cats is dead on sight.

I always thought treads were more practical for in-factory movement rather than legs.
