Is That Person You're Talking to a Human or a Robot?

Robot or human – who are you speaking to on that telemarketing call?

TechBytes host Brett Larson weighed in on these robotic operator calls on "New Day" Tuesday after several "Time" magazine reporters spoke on the phone with an upbeat woman who was offering them health insurance, but they couldn't tell if she was real.

"We can put this very real sounding person who's gonna answer, from the gist I got, she was just there to answer some simple questions," Larson said, "before she passed you off to an actual real person."
