Can Technology build “The One”?

A love connection with a robot removes all of the complication and unpleasantness of human compassion, leaving you with something much simpler and easier to understand. But how likely are we to deliberately give up our fundamental desire for human contact and interaction, and what will the consequences be for humanity if we do? It would offer people complete control over their romantic lives, allowing them to design the “ideal spouse,” but it would do more harm than good. Having your demands satisfied on demand and always getting your way may lead to greater life dissatisfaction and sadness as a result of not being able to cope with life’s challenges as effectively as you might have been able to initially. That hasn’t diminished people pursuing virtual relationships.

Virtual Relationships

There are some Japanese men who prefer to date virtual women over real women. As a result, Japan now offers a plethora of hyper-realistic virtual apps. First, you rank yourself physically and psychologically in a variety of categories (are you a bad boy? Clever and funny? Perceptive? Affluent? Could you be a stud? Or are you just simply dressed?). Then you choose the characteristics of your desired female from a list of similar category possibilities. The software then presents you with five distinct potential ladies, each with their own set of likes and dislikes, a ranking in each of the aforementioned categories, and a personality type (platforms usually put girls into five stereotypes: Geek, Modern Hippie, Urban, Alpha, or Diva). The game’s main goal is to make your girlfriend happy so that she falls in love with you. You can choose what to do or say to her, give her gifts, respond to what she says, physically “touch” her by jabbing your smartphone screen, take her out on dates, or make her change her clothes.

Build a Customized Partner

With enough user data, future AI could construct a fully customized virtual reality partner for you — one that ticks all your “boxes.” The next stage, controversially, would be to perceive an avatar as a physical entity. It may take up residence in a life-like robot and operate as both an interactive companion and a sexual partner. Such advanced humanoid robots do not yet exist, but they may do so in the future. Companion robot advocates say that the technology addresses a legitimate desire for more closeness in society, particularly among the elderly, bereaved, and persons with disabilities. Meanwhile, skeptics warn of the dangers of objectification, racism, and dehumanization, which are particularly dangerous for women but also for men.

Newest Member of the Family?

These robots will be positioned as social companions. They might help with chores, keep an eye on the house, teach the kids, and keep the old or sick company. Joe Hawkins, his wife, and their three children live in London. Running a household and working would be difficult enough for the parents, but Laura, the mother, goes on business trips frequently and leaves the children and the house to Joe. As a result, he plans to purchase a robotic servant who looks exactly like a person. Anita is the name given to it by the youngsters. These are the opening scenes of the show “Humans”, yet they might easily be a scene from any family’s future life.

Digital Humanoids

Digital humans have the appearance and behavior of humans but are entirely virtual. Samsung Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Labs’ Neons, AI-powered entities with distinct personalities and appearances, are one example. These artificial humans aren’t meant to answer inquiries like Alexa or Siri, but rather to display emotions, learn from their experiences, and engage in genuine conversations. Each Neon is computer-generated and not based on real people, and each one can be modified for a certain job, such as a virtual doctor or a yoga instructor. This technology will soon be used to create personalized relationships for people. It could potentially be duplicated in the form of actual humanoid robots capable of physical affection.

Is it a solution to loneliness?

Loneliness has been linked to a 50% increase in death from any cause. This is equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day and is even more harmful than obesity. According to a survey, 17 percent of persons aged 20 to 35 have spoken to technology to divert themselves from their loneliness. Obesity does not predict early death as well as social isolation.

Can robotic partners replace humans?

You need to fly overseas, but you want to give your daughter a hug and be present when she participates in the school play? Simply ask your Lynx robot from Ubtech, a Chinese robotics company, to assist you! The Lynx app’s Avatar Mode allows the doll-sized robot to see, hear, and speak for you, as well as wave hello, dance, and hug you. The mechanical life form responds to human touch and senses motion or light using its touch sensors.

Can AI offer real intimacy?

Human sexuality has significant emotional, psychological, and spiritual components, yet it is fundamentally a physical act. While a humanoid can fulfill certain requirements, it cannot replace human connection. It’s a supplement, not a replacement.
