Odborníci na umelú inteligenciu už viackrát predikovali nástup sexuálnych robotov. Pritom vraj nejde o veľmi vzdialenú budúcnosť.

V decembri sa na Goldsmithovej univerzite v Londýne konala konferencia s názvom Láska a sex s robotmi (Love and Sex with Robots). Jeden z účastníkov David Levy, autor knihy o láske človeka a robota, predpovedal, že manželstvo človeka s robotom by mohlo byť legálne okolo roku 2050. Adrian Cheok, profesor počítačových vied na City University v Londýne a riaditeľ Mixed Reality Lab v Singapure, hovorí, že táto predikcia ani nie je taká pritiahnutá za vlasy.

„Mohlo by sa to zdať škandalózne, veď to bude len o 35 rokov. Ale pred 35 rokmi si ľudia mysleli, že homosexuálne manželstvá sú odpudzujúce,“ povedal Cheok, ktorý takisto vystúpil na konferencii. „Až do 70. rokov minulého storočia v niektorých štátoch neboli dovolené manželstvá medzi belochmi a černochmi. Spoločnosť však napreduje a zmeny prichádzajú veľmi rýchlo.“

Hoci manželstvo človeka s robotom nemusí byť legálne do roku 2050, Cheok je presvedčený, že ľudia budú žiť s robotickými partnermi už oveľa skôr. Dodáva, že sexuálny robot by mohol splniť mužské sexuálne fantázie, a podľa neho by manželstvo človeka a robota malo v drvivej väčšine pozitívny vplyv na spoločnosť.

Na trhu síce sú rôzne sexboty, ale ani zďaleka nepripomínajú ľudského sexuálneho partnera. Nejde o humanoidného robota schopného milostného vzťahu. Cheok verí, že najväčší technologický problém pri vytváraní robotického sexuálneho partnera nie je mechanika, ale vývoj potrebného softvéru pre robota, ktorý zvládne konverzáciu s ľuďmi. Len čo bude tento problém vyriešený, Cheok nevidí nijakú prekážku pre vznik ľúbostných románikov medzi človekom a strojom a prirovnáva lásku k robotom k citom, ktoré prechovávame k iným druhom, ako sú napr. mačky či iní domáci miláčikovia.

No právna úprava sa môže pohybovať aj opačným smerom – len čo sa láska a sex s robotom stanú reálnejšími, môže dôjsť k zákazu sexuálnych vzťahov medzi ľuďmi a strojmi. Zatiaľ to síce technológie neumožňujú, no podľa odborníkov je lepšie pripraviť sa na to vopred.

La distancia siempre suele ser un gran problema cuando hablamos de relaciones, y sí, aplicaciones como Whatsapp, Messenger o Skype, hacen que todo sea un poco menos difícil, pero a veces parece que no fuera suficiente.

Sin embargo, la tecnología vuelve a sorprendernos, ya que un grupo de científicos desarrolló un nuevo aparato: Kissenger. Este hace posible sentir un beso a través de sensores de fuerza de alta precisión que permiten replicar los movimientos del beso en el dispositivo de la persona que lo recibe.

Las mentes detrás de Kissenger, son Adrian David Cheok, Emma Yann Zhang, Yukihiro Morisawa y Shogo Nishiguchi, científicos radicados en Londres que presentaron esta creación recientemente en la conferencia Love and Sex with Robots Aún no tiene fecha de lanzamiento, pero puede ser probado en diversas ferias de tecnología.

Kissenger

Ett gäng forskare har tagit fram en produkt som ska hjälpa distansförhållanden genom att göra det möjligt att pussa varandra via mobilen.

Alla som någon gång varit i ett distansförhållande eller tvingats vara ifrån sin partner en längre tid vet hur svårt det kan vara att inte få röra vid varandra. Det försöker Adrian David Cheok, Emma Yann Zhang, Yokihiro Morisawa och SHogo Nishiguchi göra något åt.

De fyra forskarna har tagit fram en pryl de kallar Kissenger, med vilken du och din partner kan pussa varandra på distans.

Kissenger använder sensorer för att mäta trycker på olika punkter när du trycker läpparna mot den. Motpartens enhet använder sedan små motorer för att trycka i precis samma mönster, så att det känns likadant som när du blir kysst på riktigt. Det är i alla fall tanken, och forskarna har en fungerande uppsättning prototyper som testas för fullt.

Forskarna hoppas att såväl par som familjer, och även kändisfans, vill prova. ”Kissing the Kardashians” nästa kanske?

Un invento fuera de lo común. (INTERNET)

 

ISKANDAR, MALASIA.-
POR SI LA PAREJA VIVE EN DIFERENTES PARTES DEL MUNDO

 

Para los novios a larga distancia que creían que sólo podían verse y hablarse por internet, sepan que ahora también podrán besarse gracias un nuevo dispositivo llamado Kissenger.

Este aparato sirve para dar besos. Lo que hace es que utiliza sensores presión, así, mientras los usuarios están en un chat de video, podrán también darse un beso, la otra persona virtualmente en pantalla pero el Kissenger como simulador de él o ella.

Fue desarrollado en el Laboratorio Imagineering , del ‘Imagineering Institute’ de Adrian David Cheok, en Iskandar, Malasia.

“El dispositivo Kissenger fue construido para que la gente pueda expresar la intimidad y la emoción de forma remota a través de los besos en Internet”, dice Emma Yann Zhang, estudiante de doctorado en la ‘City University London’. “Su objetivo es rellenar la dimensión del tacto que falta en la comunicación digital tradicional, que se centra principalmente en la información verbal y auditiva. Creemos que el toque físico es el canal más importante para comunicar las emociones y para mantener relaciones cercanas con los seres queridos en el otro lado del mundo”, añade.

Los creadores ya presentaron su proyecto en una conferencia titulada ‘Love and Sex With Robots’, llevada a cabo en Londres el mes pasado y esperan ahora conseguir socios comerciales e inversionistas para llevarlo de venta al mercado comercial.

Sposarsi con un donna/uomo robot? Sarà possibile entro il 2050.

Matrimoni tra esseri umani e robot? Potrebbero essere legali nel 2050

Se ne è parlato a Londra nel corso di una conferenza. “Molti matrimoni tra esseri umani sono frutto di profonda insoddisfazione” e in futuro potrebbe essere ritenuta una scelta perfettamente normale.

Fra qualche anno potremo sposarci con un robot. Lo prevedono esperti del settore spiegando che permetteranno di fare sesso ma non solo: saranno coniugi perfetti e servizievoli, romantici quanto basta a fare perdere la testa a qualunque uomo o donna. Ne ha parlato David Levy, autore di “Love and Sex with Robots”,  nel corso di una conferenza alla Goldsmith University di Londra, prevedendo che il matrimonio tra uomo e robot sarà legale nel 2050; a ritenere non così azzardata la previsione anche Adrian Cheok, computing professor della City University London e direttore del Mixed Reality Lab di Singapore.

“Sembra irriverente ma 35 anni addietro molti pensavano la stessa cosa del matrimonio omosessuale” dice Cheok. “Fino agli anni ’70, alcuni stati non consentivano il matrimonio tra persone bianche e di colore. La società progredisce e cambia molto rapidamente”.

Il matrimonio tra uomini e robot non sarà legale fino al 2050 ma Cheok ritiene che prima di allora gli esseri umani conviveranno a lungo con partner-robot. Secondo lui potranno soddisfare “fantasie sessuali maschiliste” con un effetto “straordinariamente positivo” sulla società. «La gente pensa che chiunque possa sposarsi, fare sesso, innamorarsi ma per molti non è così facile. Anche chi potrebbe, forse è alla ricerca di una scelta diversa». «Molte unioni tra esseri umani portano a profonda insoddisfazione” dice ancora Cheok, “e un matrimonio con un robot, per alcuni versi è forse preferibile a una vita coniugale con un essere umano”.

Sul mercato esistono già costosissime bambole e robot personalizzabili anche nei dettagli intimi, ma non esistono ancora sistemi perfetti in grado di simulare una relazione sentimentale. Secondo Cheok non è una grande sfida dal punto di vista tecnologico ma semplicemente una questione di software, di sviluppare un bot in grado di comprendere a sufficienza le conversazioni permettendo all’automa di comportarsi di conseguenza. Risolto il problema lato software, secondo Cheok stabilire una relazione non è più problema. “Se un robot sembra amarti, e senti di volergli bene, la sensazione sarà essenzialmente quella di amore quasi umano”. In Giappone e Corea del Sud esistono già tante persone “innamorate” di personaggi creati al computer; l’amore verso personaggi virtuali può essere paragonato secondo Cheok a quello che si prova verso altre specie, come ad esempio i gatti domestici. “Abbiamo già empatia molo elevata per creature non umane e con robot che si comportano come umani, dimostrando emotività o sembrando umani, non ci vorrà molto a provare empatia verso i robot”.

Non tutti sono della stessa opinione. Oliver Bendel, professore presso la Scuola universitaria professionale svizzera crede poco questa eventualità parlando di questione morale. “Il matrimonio è una forma di contratto tra esseri umani con reciproci diritti e obblighi, compresi la cura e il benessere dei bambini”. “Forse un giorno i robot potranno comprendere  diritti e doveri, ma non penso che avverrà davvero”. Anche Bendel non nega alla fine che il matrimonio uomo-robot possa effettivamente diventare realtà entro il 2050. A suo dire legislazioni in merito potrebbero tenere conto di ciò, impedendo matrimoni di questo tipo quando la tecnologia lo permetterà.

Sex Robot Conference to Be Held at London’s Goldsmiths University

A conference based on the industry and future of sex robots is set to be held in December at London’s “highly-respected” Goldsmiths University.

The Love and Sex with Robots Conference will take place between the 19th and the 20th of December, and boasts a current lineup of 16 doctors and professors at the event, where a number of related topics will be discussed including robot emotions, teledildonics, and intelligent electronic sex hardware.

The conference, which was originally due to take place in Malaysia until it was banned, is also encouraging paper submissions which will be compiled into “a special issue of the journal Computer Science.”

Professor Adrian David Cheok (Director of the Mixed Reality Lab), Dr. Kate Devlin (Senior Lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London), and Dr. David Levy (author of Love and Sex with Robots) are set to chair the conference, which will cost £200 for admission to the general public or £125 for students.

“Our research aims to carve a new narrative, moving away from sex robots purely defined as machines used as sex objects, as substitutes for human partners, made by men, for men,” said Dr. Devlin. “A machine is a blank slate – it is what we make of it. Why should a sex robot be binary? What about the potential for therapy? It’s time for new approaches to artificial sexuality. Cutting edge research in technology and ethics is vital if we want to reframe ideas about the human-tech relationship.”

Earlier this month, sex industry entrepreneur Bradley Charvet announced his plans to open a sex robot cafe in London, where visitors could “enjoy a nice blowjob from a sex robot” while drinking coffee and eating a pastry. Charvet also declared that if the cafe was a success, he would open another in Manchester with 24/7 service.

“I think it will be fully emotional,” claimed Futurologist Dr. Ian Pearson during an interview on the future of sex robots with Breitbart Tech in July, before adding that people would spend “about the same as they do today on a decent family-size car.”

“Now if you’re going to be buying one for that sort of money, you’ve got to buy one that you find attractive. You’ve got a wide choice over cars for instance, you’ve got to have a similar choice over robots. There’s not just going to be two models on the market, you’re going to be able to pick robots where you can customise their appearance,” he claimed. “People will design the robots that they’re buying as a home servant, or butler, or maid, or whatever it is they’re buying it for, and they’ll be customising the appearance of that so that they find it attractive.”

“In the same time-frame, artificial intelligence is reaching human levels and also becoming emotional as well,” Pearson continued. “So people will actually have quite strong emotional relationships with their own robots. In many cases that will develop into a sexual one because they’ll already think that the appearance of the robot matches their preference anyway, so if it looks nice and it has a superb personality too it’s inevitable that people will form very strong emotional bonds with their robots and in many cases that will lead to sex.”

Humans Marrying Robots? Experts Say It’s Really Coming

If you were rooting for Dolores and William to make it work on Westworld, just wait a few more decades and their relationship may be able to exist in real life. That’s right, a few experts say marriage will be legal between humans and robots by 2050.

At a conference last week called “Love and Sex with Robots” at Goldsmith University in London, David Levy, author of a book on human-robot love, made the bold prediction, Quartz reports. And while some other experts were skeptical, Adrian Cheok, a professor at City University London and director of the Mixed Reality Lab in Singapore, supported Levy’s idea.

“That might seem outrageous because it’s only 35 years away. But 35 years ago people thought homosexual marriage was outrageous,” Cheok said. “Until the 1970s, some states didn’t allow white and black people to marry each other. Society does progress and change very rapidly.”

And Cheok pointed out that there could be some real advantages to robot relationships. “A lot of human marriages are very unhappy,” he said. “Compared to a bad marriage, a robot will be better than a human.”

High precision sensors have embedded in the device under the silicon lip to measure the different parts of the lips during the kiss. After giving the kiss, it sends data in the form of kiss to your partner over the internet in real time.

Kissenger ios app is also available, after installing you can send kisses to your partner. These was designed by Adrian David Cheok, Emma Yann Zhang, Yukihiro Morisawa, Shogo Nishiguchi from Imagineering Lab, city university, London.

A Special Case that can transform iPhone into Android

Professor Zhang said “ kiss is an expression to express our love, it is also stress reducing when we involved in the kind of physical touch we have a lower level of blood pressure

To stay connected with your lover, friends, and family you can use this device. Kissenger is live now. They made the first working prototype for ios device is designed like a phone cover that plugs into the audio jack of iPhone or iPad.

Lonely? Kissenger simulates long-distance smooch over internet

A new device called the Kissenger makes it possible to give and receive a kiss through a smartphone — but it’s a bit early to start puckering up.

WASHINGTON — Long-distance relationships can be challenging, but a new device makes it possible to kiss someone over a smartphone.

Kissenger — no relationship to former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger — is in the working prototype stage, said Emma Yann Zhang, a doctoral student at the Imagineering Institute in Malaysia.

“It’s a device where you can plug into your phone, and it has an array of force sensors and actuators inside the device that can measure your lip pressure,” Zhang said.

The prototype, made from a 3D printer, includes a holster which holds the phone and an oblong silicone pad.

When exchanging a long-distance kiss, each participant can see the other through Skype video and feel the lip pressure being transmitted by the partner in real-time.

“We wanted material that is as close or similar to human skin, which is soft and flexible,” said Zhang.

Zhang developed the prototype and accompanying iPhone app for her doctoral research in conjunction with professor Adrian David Cheok, at City University London.

“We want to make online or digital communication much more intimate,” said Zhang. “We can see or hear each other, but we can’t really touch each other through the internet.”

Zhang said the physical touch is very important for human relationships, especially between lovers, and for parents and children.

“Some parents want to kiss their children or grandchildren when they’re not living together with them,” she said.

While interest in the concept has been high, Zhang said there are no current plans to commercialize Kissenger, although she would be open to working with companies willing to collaborate.

The quality of the kiss likely leaves something to be desired — it’s more of a peck on the lips,  since there’s no tongue component.

And while Kissenger already has a sizable “ewww” factor — wait, there’s more.

“Now we’re looking at making the resolution of this device higher, with more sensors and actuators to  provide a more realistic kissing sensation,” including your partner’s scent, said Zhang.

“The next version we’re looking at building a kissing robot,” said Zhang. “It’s going to be a humanoid robot head, but with interactive lips.”

Ewwwww  More to come.

Le sexe avec les robots, ça pourrait commencer dès 2017

http://www.huffingtonpost.fr/2016/12/22/le-sexe-avec-les-robots-ca-pourrait-commencer-des-2017/

Bientôt, fera-t-on faire l’amour à des androïdes ?

 

TECHNO – Avoir des relations sexuelles avec des robots “c’est pour demain”, a prédit un chercheur en intelligence artificielle lors d’une conférence consacrée aux jouets sexuels interactifs et aux relations avec les humanoïdes, organisée à Londres les 19 et 20 décembre.

Si le cinéma et la télévision, avec récemment par exemple “Ex Machina” et “Westworld“, ont largement exploré l’idée des androïdes comme objets de séduction, les robots sexuels restent pour l’instant du domaine de la science fiction.

Cela devrait changer rapidement, prédit toutefois le spécialiste David Levy, “avec l’arrivée des premiers robots sexuels quelque part l’an prochain”.

L’entreprise californienne Abyss Creations a en effet annoncé vouloir mettre sur le marché dès 2017 des robots sexuels qui présentent toutes les apparences de l’humain. La société propose déjà des “poupées sexuelles” grandeur nature depuis des années, mais va maintenant leur donner la parole. Elles pourront discuter avec une personne, lui demander comment s’est passée sa journée, etc.

Le sexe à distance

En attendant, les dernières trouvailles en matière de jouets sexuels électroniques ont été présentées lors de la conférence organisée par l’université Goldsmiths de Londres, comme cette application mobile permettant aux couples d’échanger des baisers à distance et baptisée “Kissenger”.

Une autre application qui propose d’échanger des bruits et sensations de léchage, “Teletongue”, est en cours de développement à l’université Keio de Tokyo. Encore plus loin et plus bizarre, le site BlowCast propose des fellations via internet, en enregistrant d’un côté les sensations et en les retransmettant de l’autre, avec des sextoys connectés.

Lynne Hall, du département de sciences informatiques de l’université britannique de Sunderland, estime que les robots pourraient créer “une expérience sexuelle fantastique”. “Il y a plein d’avantages au sexe avec les robots… C’est sûr, vous n’attrapez pas de maladie, vous pouvez contrôler”, a-t-elle mis en avant. Et selon elle, il n’y aucun risque de le voir supplanter le sexe entre humains.

Les mariages avec des robots pour 2050?

“On nous inculque une sorte de panique morale… ‘c’est dégoûtant… personne ne fera plus l’amour avec un humain'”, dit-elle. “Mais les gens regardent régulièrement du porno et continuent pourtant de faire l’amour avec des êtres humains.”

David Levy, auteur en 2007 du livre “Love and Sex with robots”, qui a donné son nom au symposium londonien, va plus loin et estime que l’homme pourrait aussi envisager d’épouser des robots dès le milieu du siècle.

Les robots du futur seront “patients, gentils, protecteurs, aimants”, jamais “jaloux, vantards, arrogants, brutaux”, a affirmé David Levy, par ailleurs champion international d’échecs britannique. “A moins évidemment que vous ne le souhaitiez”.

Selon sa vision, des parents robots pourraient devenir une norme sociale, avec des lois promouvant “l’identité robot”. “Le temps viendra où le débat théorique devra évoluer en loi et les conséquences de ces lois seront stupéfiantes”, présage-t-il.

Pour le moment cependant, envisager des relations sexuelles avec un humanoïde va trop loin pour beaucoup de monde, souligne Emma Yann Zhang, une étudiante de City University de Londres qui a travaillé sur le prototype “Kissenger”.

Une étude menée par l’Institut d’imagerie de Malaisie, en collaboration avec la City University, montre en effet que si les gens sont ouverts à la possibilité que des humains puissent être attirés par des robots, la plupart n’envisagent aucunement de prendre un robot pour amant, a-t-elle souligné.
