Will people demand the right to marry (intelligent) robots?
From the book “Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships”
In this wide-ranging examination of the emotional and physical relations between humans and the inanimate objects of their desire, artificial intelligence guru David Levy first addresses the question of love with robots, and moves on to consider the mechanics of actually having sex with them. In order to put the reader at ease with the possibility of human-robot love, Levy compares the phenomenon to the ways in which humans fall in love with each other, their pets, and even their motorcycles. From there, Levy argues, it is a short emotional step to the affection people can be expected to display towards robots.
Second question: Do you expect a controversy over gay robot marriage? Which means if the right is granted at some point in the future, will it be restricted to robots depicting (simulating) the opposite sex?
