This is extremely impressive, but also kind of scary. Listen to the sample calls, it has intentionally inserted 'Um's and things like that so you don't suspect it's not a human.

If the official statement is too dry or technical here's a short opinion piece on it that raises some interesting thoughts.

Wow, this is really impressive. That's the best voice synthesis I've heard, even better than what Deep Mind came out with a while back. They say they were able to achieve the natural conversation by really restricting the domain, but still... wow. I'd be interested to hear some conversations where it gets confused, and how it attempts to recover.

I'd like to just have the text-to-speech program!

I find it a little creepy, since one of the benefits of receiving an automated call (for sales, scams etc.) is how easy it is to recognize that it is a recording, not a real person.
