Taking this dilemma to the next level, researchers have studied how these machines make us feel, sexually and emotionally.
Scientists programmed a human-shaped robot to ask volunteers to touch it in 13 different places.
While some of these requests presented no difficulties, people were hesitant to touch 'private' areas including the robot's 'buttocks'.
Jamy Li, an engineer working on human-robot interaction at Stanford University, said that touch has been under-examined compared to robots' appearance and shape.
'Our work shows that people respond to robots in a primitive, social way,' he said.
'Social conventions regarding touching someone apply to a robot's body parts as well.'
Li used a Nao, a human-shaped robot from Aldebaran Robotics, in his experiments.
Although this has an approximately human shape, it is not life-like.
Li describes it as 'somewhere between C-3PO and Wall-E, familiar but distinctly non-human.'
People taking part in the experiment were fitted with sensors on their fingers to record skin conductance and reaction times.
The robot asked the participants to touch it in various places, and when they did so the robot would offer a medical term for that region of the body.
With accessible areas such as the hands, human subjects demonstrated little emotional response.
But when the robot asked to be touch in normally-inaccessible areas, the participants demonstrated physiological and emotional arousal.
This response was the same as what would happen if another human asked the participant to touch them.
Movies are always right. I always tell the youngins, watch a movie, drink a beer, we don't need no teachers here. You can learn an entire public school education solely through movies. You wanna learn about early America? Watch Django Unchained or the Birth of a Nation. You wanna understand AI and robots and getting boners to things that aren't human? Watch Ex Machina.
If anything can explain how people get boners to robots, it is that movie. If you have seen that movie and were not thinking you wanted to stick a pipe up her central computing cortex, then you must be blind. Bitch was the hottest robot ever, ever.
That is the problem we are going to face in 20 years. Women will no longer care about their appearence, the amount of models will dwindle down until all we have is instagram chicks. Why? because we are making robots way to hot in the future. You can go into Walmart get yourself a cheaply made AI. Shes not going to be upper echelon but shes still pretty. Her skin feels a bit like sand paper and so does something else. But you went to Walmart and it is still better than anything left on Tinder or Bumble. You check her out at the register and they give her an activation code, shazam you have a new wife, girlfriend or fuck toy, whatever your sick brain wants to call it.
Don't like the table talk? You can bring her back to your local Walmart and they will reprogram her or him, no ones judging, to absorb the information on any of your social media sites or the less popular option just talk to it, based off its interactions with the world it will create a conscious personality. The latter option is to much of a wildcard. Unless youve done it before, have some experience.
The world is gonna turn into a fucked up place. Just ask Ye, dude sees 10 years into the future. He would know, he already told me im gonna be able to afford one of them high end AI models. Like them ones Gucci be making.
