Will We Start Marrying Robots One Day?
Top academics in the UK have claimed that within 30 years, humans will be legally allowed to marry robots and the marriages will be recognized by the state. Next year will see the first ‘sex-robots’ available to the public and some have claimed this will be a catalyst for our acceptance of AI as life.
Thirty years? It won't be that long, I don't think. More like ten or so.
Ever seen that movie called Her? With Joaquin Phoenix? Guy calls in love with an AI Operating System? It was decidedly strange, but plausible nonetheless.
Lots of upsides to marrying a robot who would be programmed to meet your every whim and desire. And few downsides, once you get past the whole not a real person thing. LOL.
