The Sexbots are coming!

Postby The » Tue May 12, 2015 12:25 am

I guess SParc and Paloaltoguy are right.....The sexbots are here!! Will they replace women???!?

Heres a sample of the article...

Sex and love in the age of robots

The current pinnacle of sex robots is Roxxxy.
(http://www.truecompanion.com/home.html)

We first met Roxxxy in 2010, when creator True Companion began showing the sexbot off to the media. Since then, the lineup has grown to include a variety of options; Roxxxy can look nearly any way you want her to, with customizable hair length and texture. You can also choose her skin color, eyeliner, and pubic hair.

http://techcrunch.com/2010/01/09/nsfw-true-companion-debuts-sex-robot-roxxxy/

There's a male version of the bot as well, appropriately dubbed Rocky. The technology allows you to program the doll's personality, “so she likes what you like, dislikes what you dislike, etc.," True Companion's website promises. “She also has moods during the day, just like real people! She can be sleepy, conversational, or she can be ‘in the mood'!"

Roxxxy comes with preprogrammed personalities, ranging from meek model “Frigid Farrah" to sexually inexperienced naïf "Young Yoko," and "Mature Martha," who can show you the ropes. You can customize these personalities or disregard them entirely and make one yourself. It's almost like building your own character in a video game. Other features include the ability to swap girlfriends (or at least their personalities) with friends and forum members via the Internet.

“This is the same as wife or girlfriend swapping without any of the social issues or sexual disease related concerns!" the website declares.

As far as anatomy, Roxxxy has “a heartbeat and a circulatory system! The circulatory system helps heat the inside of her body." A motor in her chest is constantly whirring, so that she's warm to the touch. She can also have an orgasm, though “having an orgasm" for Roxxxy appears to be a shuddering sort of reaction the bot gives.

Reading all this, I sway wildly between amazement and confusion. It's astounding that you can program a personality into an anatomically correct bot. But the descriptions of these personalities are horribly cliché and misogynistic, as is the language about “girlfriend swapping." Maybe these dolls aren't human, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve to be treated with respect.

Still have a long way to go. Nope, I don't see flesh and blood human women being replaced anytime soon, if ever.

I dont know...there are a lot of sexless men in North America....If they can't find a prostitute then where would they go? I see a growing market for this....

The market is there, but the technology isn't (and may never be). Most dateless men will say that they won't care if their bot has a fake programmed personality, synthetic skin etc., but I think they will. Even if this does take off, after a while, most men will start to crave the real thing again. It also may be completely impossible to create an artificial consciousness, as pointed out in many leading theories such as Integrated Information Theory.

If we value realism in our relationships, we may just be stuck with what we have. I would say trying to legalize p4p is a much better avenue to pursue for lonely men rather than attempting this B movie sci-fi stuff.

If Japan is any future indicator, a lot of men will not gravitate back towards the real thing.

This is kinda in alignment for America, when my Columbia University theory goes mainstream and most women become undateable.

Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

I doubt that true AI can even be created. So even if it is possible, we're still light years away on that...

I couldn't imagine wanting to have sex with a robot instead of an actual woman. Only once robots could start "passing" would it become normal, I think. But that includes having true AI and having synthetic material indistinguishable from human flesh. (Or we could go the "Terminator" route and cover the robots with actual human skin.)

The notion of true AI is really, a problem for the 22nd century, not today.

What's happening today is something known as a convergence in information technologies. Thus, some companies work on voice recognition, others on vision processing, and a few more on expert systems control technologies. That so-called sexbot is really, the combination of the above, which could happen very fast; it's a far cry from what was happening circa 2005.

This year, Japan is rolling out a hotel with robotic assistants.

http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/04/travel/japan-hotel-robots/index.html

Soon, perhaps in a decade, many of these will be incorporated into the first generation automated medical assistants in hospice centers. How far would it be, for these models to be adapted for sexual services?
