Love and Sex with Robots: The Next Step of the Relationship between Man and Machine?

Love and Sex with Robots: The Next Step of the Relationship between Man and Machine?.

A timely update on the real state of robotics in an interview with the roboticist, David Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots 2007, who dared to take seriously the fact that almost all new technology is used for sex, death or food. (see also Peter Nowak’s Sex, Bombs and Burgers)

So, follow the money. Enjoy the article from Singularity Universe. And if you wonder where your silver metal lover is, then take up the interesting study of Human-Robot Interaction. I would say that we already love and have sex with robots, cyborgs and other ‘others’, so the issue is more about what works for whom and when. What is at stake? as Donna Haraway would ask.
