Researcher: Humans will wed robots

I believe it. Robots don't make you want to smother them with a pillow.

The University of Maastricht in the Netherlands is awarding a doctorate to a researcher who wrote a paper on marriages between humans and robots.

Think about it, watching porn on the internet is technically an intimate relationship between you and your PC. Get over your commitment issues and take that relationship to the next step.

David Levy, a British artificial intelligence researcher at the college, wrote in his thesis, "Intimate Relationships with Artificial Partners," that trends in robotics and shifting attitudes on marriage are likely to result in sophisticated robots that will eventually be seen as suitable marriage partners.

Can I pre-order a sexbot yet?

Levy's conclusion was based on about 450 publications in the fields of psychology, sexology, sociology, robotics, materials science, artificial intelligence, gender studies and computer-human interaction.

I bought my computer a new promise-memory stick.
