Sofia the robot: Are Humans Embracing Bots

Sarah Ryan a Relationship expert has spotted a worrying trend

People seem to be embracing digital connections. It makes things easier as the fear of rejection is zero and provides instant gratification; something the current generation seems to want and demand.

‘The number of people choosing robotic partners will increase unless we address the problems that online dating and technology are causing for our mental health,’ says Sarah. ‘I fear that humans are becoming more disposable than ever to each other romantically; ghosting each other, disappearing when the going gets tough or giving up because of online dating burnout.

‘Human beings are losing the art of dealing with conflict in real life and the ability to deal with different tricky scenarios with real human beings, romantic or not.’



Sofia the robot & her clones will be the logical replacement for chatbots

By 2020 consumers will handle 85% of their engagement with businesses without ever interacting with another human being, according to predictions from Gartner Research. Instead of engaging with people, customers will use self-service options and chatbots. This is largely due to the fact that millennials prefer to deal with customer service issues themselves.

When it comes to chatbots, 60% of millennials have used them, 70% of those report positive experiences, and of the millennials who have not used them, more than half say they are interested in using them.

“Millennials are accustomed to giving and receiving immediate feedback,” said Imran Tariq, a lead generation expert and the founder of Webmetrix Group. “When they want help or information, they’d much rather interact with Alexa or Google than read a manual or interact with a human being who likely has to search for the information as well. Bots can provide this immediate, human-like response that millennials crave.”

Given a choice, a millennial is much more likely to give a bot a chance to provide an immediate answer than to send an email or pick up the phone Forbes

Consider the case for Sofia the robot or similar sex bots

If commitment is already assured and passion can be programmed, how far away is an AI than can offer real intimacy?

‘If love boiled down to certain behavioural patterns, we could hire an actor to “go through the motions”,’ Sven Nyholm and Lily Frank wrote in From Sex Robots to Love Robots: Is Mutual Love With A Robot Possible? ‘But, by common conceptions, this would not be real love, however talented the actor might be. What goes on “on the inside” matters greatly to whether mutual love is achieved or not.’

The interesting point here is about ‘going through the motions’. We are increasingly alone and the modern epidemic of loneliness is actually killing us. Loneliness is associated with a 50% increase in mortality from any cause. This makes it comparable to smoking 15 cigarettes every day and more dangerous than obesity. To appease loneliness, 17% of people between the age of 20 and 35 have spoken to technology to distract themselves, according to a survey. Nearly 30% of UK relationships are sexless and growing numbers are staying in unhappy marriages. Full Story
