    Android technology

    Should we develop androids, i.e., humanlike machines that can think, reason, and possibly even feel emotion? They may even be capable of sex with a human.

    It is being done as we speak; the leading developers are the Japanese. It will be a big deal in another 15-30 years, and we might as well get used to it as there is no putting the genie back in the bottle.

    I don't think it's a question of "should." It's going to happen, regardless of any ethical qualms people have about it.

    You seem quite interested in getting sex from something other than a human. This is the second thread on the subject today.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I just really like sex and have had it with many different types of men, and even a few women out of curiosity. I'd be open to something different, but animals and corpses are out (geeee-rrrooossssss), so that leaves machines. Could be interesting for kicks and there would be no danger of STDs.

    but they could get a virus, and you'd have to hope your copy of norton is up to date.

    and if they malfunctioned, that'd be a shocking experience

    Yes, we should pursue artificial intelligence technology. No, we shouldn't use this technology to produce ever more pervasive forms of pornography.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. You might download a virus or maybe even a worm
