Robosex in the big city

Sex robots and sex-bots are an integral part of science fiction. The idea of a robot as a sexual partner is actively promoted in modern films and television series – is enough to recall the painting “She” and “Out of the car,” and “The World of the Wild West.” But the future is much closer than it might seem at first glance. 19-20 December 2016 in London hosted the 2nd International Conference Love and Sex with Robots, which brought together experts in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.


Organizers of the event say the increased interest in the relationship between man and robot, not only in the print media and documentaries, but also in the scientific community. Author of the book «Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships», according to AI expert, and former international chess master, 71-year-old David Levy said that as soon as the relationship with the androids will become ubiquitous, the next logical step It will be the marriage between man and robot.

“In the future they will be able to be patient, kind and caring,” – said the expert, noting that the necessary software for the “humanization” of robots can be developed in the next 10-20 years. Besides, sooner or later, it will be raised the topic of morality. Swiss professor Oliver Bendel asked those present at the event, an important question is whether the right to sex-bot has to refuse to comply with any requirement of man?

Earlier, the robots depicted in works of literature and cinema docile and accommodating, as a rule, do not have their own ambitions. However, in the aforementioned film “Out of the car,” and the TV series “Wild West” androids are getting out of control and rebellion in an attempt to gain freedom from harassment.
