Goolge may have faked a recent demo of its new AI assistant in which the software was shown to fool a hair salon receptionist into thinking it was human.

The software, dubbed Duplex, debuted at a Google conference last week when it was tasked to book a hair appointment over the phone in front of a live audience.

During the demo, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said: 'What you're going to hear is the Google Assistant actually calling a real salon to Domino 99 schedule an appointment for you.'

Duplex seemingly put on such a good impression of a human that the person it called failed to notice they were speaking to a robot.

The creepy demo made headlines across the world, but a new report suggests that Google faked the phone call and misled viewers and investors.

News site Axios highlights that a number of things about the call, such as a lack of ambient noise at the salon, point to a falsified or edited recording.

Google's press team has repeatedly refused to hand over the name of the salon that Duplex called, it said.

Two calls were played during the demo, one to a salon and another to a restaurant.

Google said both businesses Qiu Qiu were based near its headquarters in Mountain View, California.

Neither of the 'employees' who answered Duplex's calls identified the business they were speaking from, nor did they give their own names.
