Description

From Pygmalion falling for his chiseled Galatea to Dr. Frankenstein marveling at his creature to the man-meets-machine fiction of Philip K. Dick and Michael Crichton, humans have been enthralled by the possibilities of emotional relationships with their technological creations. Synthesizing cutting-edge research in robotics with the cultural history and psychology of artificial intelligence, Love and Sex with Robots explores this fascination and its far-reaching implications. Artificial intelligence expert David Levy looks at the evolution of human interactions with their machines as technology has become more sophisticated and cultural attitudes toward love and sex have changed over the years. His shocking yet persuasive argument is that the entities we once deemed cold and mechanical will soon become the objects of real companionship and human desire.show more
