Will Robots Replace Humans in Relationships?


Certainly there has been a lot of discussion of robots taking jobs from humans (see ‘robots’ in the tag cloud), but an article published by IEEE (“In the Future, Humans Will Form Romantic Relationships With Robots“) discussed the possibility of robots becoming the preferred ‘mate’. One futurist mentioned in the article, Ian Pearson, predicts that “women will choose robots instead of men by 2025 – and by 2050, most every person will prefer to be with a bot.

The IEEE article discusses how realistic Pearson’s predictions are with IEEE Senior Member and Professor of Computer Science Dr. Kevin Curran.
