Break Friday: Dating Robots Edition
Today on Break, I take a look at something that will be a significant social issue... of the future.
It's a given that as robots become more and more a part of our lives, people are absolutely going to be having sex with them. That's so obvious, and it's already even happening now, so there's nothing too interesting about considering that.
But what about dating them? When robots become so advanced that we can have conversations with them, that they can sense our moods, and appear to have moods and feelings of their own, will our bonds with them be more than just household-pet or sex-toy, and instead evolve in some cases to full-blown romantic relationships?
Take a look at my analysis of the likelihood of that, and just what would have to happen in robotics for that to be possible, in my latest article!
And as always, if you liked the article and/or found it interesting, please share it!
