An Artificial Intelligence expert, David Levy, has revealed plans to create robots that will serve as sex mates for humans and possibly become life partners.
The expert announced the development at a global conference held in Goldsmiths, University of London earlier in the week. The program featured interactive sex toys and discussions on the ethics of relationships with humanoids.
“Sex with robots is just around the corner, with the first sexbots coming sometime next year”, Levy said.
Moreover, US California-based company Abyss Creations, next year will start marketing sex robots that are billed as life-like, with the ability to talk and move like humans.
Levy, the author of “Love and Sex with Robots”, from which the annual conference takes its title, said marriage to robots would be the next logical step. He added that people should entertain the thought of marriage with robots as early as 2050.
“Robots of the future will be patient, kind, protective, loving, never jealous, boastful, arrogant, rude, unless of course you want them to be.
“All of the following qualities and many more are likely to be achievable in software within a few decades”, Levy said.
