  • AI researcher/engineer here. I said yes of course.
    Look, I am a short, awkward guy. I work out, I can cook, I have multiple jobs, I have three papers being published and a masters degree coming soon , oh and I am kind of in the middle of starting a startup. But I don't think any woman wants me and I actually do have at least the theoretical knowledge to program this thing so if I do get the money for the parts and possibly people who can work on the mechanical and materials side, why not?

    Here is how I would go about making it: I wouldn't mind working for Real Doll on an AI platform, they have the funds and the mechanical engineers. Put a Google Coral or Jetson Nano in there to do edge AI and protect every user's privacy. Optional, get the user to build a local server that is air-gapped except for being connected to the Jetson Nano for some kind of self-optimizing machine via Tensorflow Serving. I would probably use Reinforcement Learning for the main interaction model but it would need to simultaneously need to run something like YOLO (yes, that is an actual research paper's name) to see and a voice recognition and NLP model so it can listen to you. Oh and can't forget ROS (Robot Operating System) to glue it all together.

    • Well if you do end up working on these things let me know!!! Real Dolls are really just the beginning!

    • I have subscribed to their newsletter (realbotix) but they seem to be publishing only their android app so far =/

  • I can't imagine AI ever reaching the level where you develope a loving relationship. I mean i can understand the really lonely or traumatized. But that's the point. I think most people are going to say "it was a fun novelty... but it's just a machine".

    • It will have to start somewhere and in the beginning it will just be a higher level masturbation machine in my opinion. I am also sure many couples who are kinky could get one and enjoy it without having to bring anybody real into the mix.

  • Let's see:
    -Less chance of being cheated on and/or mindgames
    -They can be programmed to be an ideal partner and suit my standards and needs
    --No drama

    Yeah, I could deal with that, really. It can't be any worse than the current dating scene!

    The only downside is they lack emotions and feelings but with the way technology is evolving now, I would not be surprised if they can eventually be programmed to sense and mimic human emotions one day.

    • I am sure some will try them out! I would think with VR and robots you could have a really good time LOL.

  • If AIs get to be so real we can't really differentiate if it's human or not, because the touch of skin, muscle or fat is the same and they feel warm as any other person, they make reasonable conversations and so on... I could fall in love with one the same way I would fall in love with another human.

    • A human might do the same. And a fake penis could have a warmer to make it body temp.

  • Although humorous thinking of it, I can imagine this actually being a question people will pose if/when the technology for it is developed.

    Firstly, I would rule preferred off the table. I don’t see myself ever actually preferring an AI/robot, even if it was literally the exact same except for internal biology. The most AI/robotics could ever create is a dating alternative in my view, and for an alternative, the AI/robotics would have to be seriously advanced to the point where they’re practically indistinguishable from humans. At that point, there’d be questions of whether you could call them new life forms.

    One problem I see with robotics that would be auto-dealbreakers is that they’d be either 1.) too perfect or 2.) able to be turned off or changed. I think both things would lead to an unequal relationship one way or another. A relationship where I have an unfair authority feels more like that of a servant. I think I’d be most satisfied with equal footing. If you relate it to a video game, it’d be like having a “god mode” cheat where you get unlimited health/ammo/stats. At first, it seems great, but after awhile, the ease becomes stale. In that way, a one sided relationship would feel less real. It wouldn’t feel like being loved back. I think knowing you’re loved back is part of the great thing about a relationship, y’know? It would feel more like an obligation for a programmed response. I honestly don’t see society creating a robot that they couldn’t pull the plug for either.

    Now that’s talking about extreme AI, which I don’t see as something arriving for MANY years. If we go for a lesser AI, that’s in no way an alternative to me. The relationship becomes more of a novelty at that point, like asking Siri and finding the range of pre-programmed responses.

    To conclude, AI would only be an alternative in my opinion if...
    — the AI/robot was virtually indistinguishable from that of a human (including the flaws and own desires)
    — there wasn’t a way to pull the plug on the AI/robot

    • @YHL6965 It would still feel strange. The relationship would feel incomplete.

    • Definitely agree with you. AIs have their limits and I'm not sure we can really completely emulate actual humans one day.

  • No. I am more than capable to have my own healthy relationships with human beings. I enjoy the complex brain, unique personality & genuine emotions. Although I could see them being positive options for those with crippling anxiety or other things that make forming healthy bonds very difficult.

    • Don't be scared !

    • I just don’t personally like them😂 I just can’t wrap my mind around the fact that we’re able to create these things but then they are smart enough to take on a life of their own

  • No, I wouldn't. A robot won't be able to do the same thing as humans. It won't have the same intelligence, real feelings, real empathy, real chemistry or be able to look like a real person.

    Real people can look good, move properly, think by themselves, have a properly conversation, care about you and love you. A robot is fake and can't love you or experience anything with you. It's a none living object. So off course not. The point with the relationship would just vanish then.

  • At least I wouldn't have to waste so much time in spell of debilitating lonliness. And if the relationship does have to end like in the movie "HER", I wouldn't have to worry about being left in a worse place mentally or physically than the state I was in entering the relationship. We'd actually grow together instead of falling out or getting stuck on the arbitrary or relatively trivial. This is especially so since we're two different beings, two different kinds of intelligence; that's all the more there is to learn from one another.
