#98 Sex with the Bots & Artificial Immortality

Don’t look now but the bots are coming to a town near you, or in some cases a bedroom perhaps! Difficult to fathom… for some that is, but here is a quiet industry taking shape that will essentially replace human partners with romantic robots. You can almost here the chatter now… Oh Jen your elbow is crushing my ribs. Robot-tress Jen replies, Sorry Mike I oftentimes underestimate my own power, but does the rest of my technique feel good? — Could robots really be the future of human intimacy? Something does not compute here!?!

And then there is this story in Wired on an entirely new concept for robot/human relations, the dad-bot. What starts out as an idea to record his dying father to create some lasting memories – suddenly turns into a major groundbreaking experiment when the project is expanded in a way that is being described as ARTIFICIAL IMMORTALITY. You must hear the full story on this one. Would a dad-bot be a good way to preserve a family member’s memory for future generations? How would robots change humanity if they became like a family member? Today it’s all about the BOTS. Co-hosts Sally Fernandez, Helene Philipsen & Barbara McGee are ready to defend humanity and relationships in general as they provide the female perspective on the BOT revolution. Malcolm is curious to hear the ladies position on this one… flesh or bot, which one will he choose?
