With the rapid advancements in AI and robotics, futurologists predict that we may soon face a future where robots are present in every part of our lives. There are going to be labor shortages in blue and white collar sectors in the future that are going to be filled by trained robots.
It isn’t just jobs that robots are going to take over, according to a Pew report, robots designed to please humans in the bedroom will be among us by 2025.
In a poll, 50% of experts thought that it was inevitable that robots would end up taking over the world. In a report ‘AI, Robotics and the Future of Jobs’, experts opined that soon robots would get bored of repetitive tasks and would take over wide segments of daily life.
These robots are going to look, feel and move much like a human and will take over prostitution too because they will not be able to get or pass on STDs like HIV.
Everything suggests that the future of human-robot relationships is going to be a complex one. There will obviously be cases of people falling in love with their sex robots. What if a sex robot is “murdered”? Will a human be punished for the crime?
Society is getting more open to the idea of robot sex. In May 2014, a UK poll reported that 1 in 5 people would have sex with a robot. After all, there’d be less drama.
