Sex with robot by 2050 - future geeky behavior ?

October 16, 2007

Recent claim from an artificial intelligence researcher said that humans will be marrying and having sex with robots by 2050. Cool, you may recall Bicentennial Man movie in 1999, where it was based on Isaac Asimov writing. In that movie Robin Williams as a robot is so human-like, even he felt in love with human. It may be come true in the near future, us, human marry a robot.

David Levy, a Netherlands university student who recently completed his PhD on the subject human-robot relationships told that robots would become so human-like in appearance, function and personality. Speaking of personality in a robot, is also predicted that people would fall in love with them, have sex with them and even marry them. He have identified roughly a dozen basic reason why people fall in love, and almost all of them could apply to human-robot relationship. He explains about this human-robot relationship on his thesis "Intimate Relationships with Artificial Partners"

"At first, sex with robots might be considered geeky, but once you have a story like 'I had sex with a robot and it was great!' appear in a magazine like Cosmo, I'd expect many people to jump on the bandwagon," he said.
