There’s an AI you might have sex with
It is possible to imagine having non-consensual, illegal or unwilling sexual relations with a machine. Many young people can picture themselves using voice technology and smart home devices that are controlled remotely by intelligent personal assistants like Siri on their iPhones – but what about more complex machines? Not so long ago the idea of electronic gratification would’ve seemed far off into our imagination’s future; now it feels almost quaintly old fashioned considering how much progress has been made in recent years when it comes down futuristic advancements such as driverless cars! The dawning era may finally be at hand where man will no longer need his hands free because all utensils available solely through thought alone could.
A recent survey by a large IT security provider showed that around one in four Germans under the age of 30 can certainly imagine having sex with an AI. Many of them would even be willing to enter into a relationship with artificial intelligence.
Moscow, Russia). Kaspersky surveyed 1,000 Germans between the ages of 16 and 30 about their perception and use of devices or systems with artificial intelligence (AI). The results of the survey show that most Germans are concerned about their online privacy as more social interactions are now taking place online.
The company also wanted to find out how the shift in social interactions to the internet – accelerated by the recent global corona pandemic – is affecting our love lives.
Love affairs with robots have a high level of acceptance
The results are astounding, with around 26 percent of respondents saying they could imagine falling in love with an AI program tailored to their needs.
According to the survey, 25 percent of those surveyed consider an intimate relationship with a human-like AI to be conceivable, with the proportion of men at 32 percent being higher than that of women (18 percent).
In addition, almost a third (30 percent) believe that AI-powered computer algorithms will be useful in the quest for perfect human relationships. 29 percent of those surveyed also believe that with AI support they have better chances on partner portals and 27 percent believe that relationships that have been established with AI support will last longer.
Digital ex-partners from the cloud
Also interesting are the other uses that respondents can imagine for AI in love. 29 percent of those surveyed can imagine uploading a former or deceased partner to the cloud, “preserve” them as AI and continue to love them. Men (34 percent) are also slightly more open to this idea than women (23 percent).
Called for more studies on love with an AI
Since AI relationships are still a social fringe phenomenon, there are only a few studies on this topic. Kaspersky believes this needs to change and would like to stimulate a dialogue about the potential cultural implications of such a new form of relationship.
Many experts predict that in the future people will fall in love with and marry robots. In fact, a Japanese man has already married a hologram, a radio host is raising funds to create an android for his ex-girlfriend, and the first sex robots with rudimentary artificial intelligence are already commercially available.
