"Horrifying", Zeynep Tufekci, a professor and frequent tech company critic, wrote on Twitter about Duplex. Silicon Valley has for far too long taken a libertarian approach to the effects of its own creations - it lets them loose in the world and the effects are simply what they are.
As in previous years, the company unveiled a feature before it was ready.
One of the most important announcements that came on this year's developer's conference was definitely related to Google's mobile operating system Android P.
At the core of it, Duplex is a recurrent neural network that can be trained for highly specialised tasks and it uses Google's automatic speech recognition technology, so it can interface with the user. New features with this in mind can help users prevent overuse of technology. Huffman said he understands the concerns.
