Last weekend i watch the movie Ex machina
Apparently they made a robot exactly like a real woman
When she escaped in the ending she seem very real like a woman and apparently thier personality can be programmed in many ways
I felt this can somehow work one day but who knows
I know its just a movie but what do you guys think?
Can a robot who looks like a real human have a real relationship with a human?

Oh, I'm sure there are some men in this world, perhaps on this very forum, who are salivating at the prospect of a lifelike robot that can be programmed to their specifications.

But for normal people, no.

The Japanese engineers are at the forefront of robots and AI and I've always felt a certain revulsion about it..... there's some think tank out there that came out with some study that talked about things that mimicked human behavior and as it got closer to "us" there was a certain kind of revulsion factor that came into it... it was a fascinating study and as far as I know someone won some kind of award in psychology or something along those lines.....If I give a F enough I might dig it up....

So, long answer aside... no... I have no interest in a robot replacing a human female... the thought alone is horrifying and Stepford wife material....

I'll take fallible women over robots any day........ by a long shot...

In some ways I think it would be a good idea.
After all there are guys that can't find a woman that he can trust , so that is an alternative.
It seems that there are women that only want a man's pay check, and a good roll in the hay, and take orders like a robot so they'd be happy.
On the other hand if you want kids you just program a test tube baby on demand.
Or have a robot one so you can just shut it off so you can ignore it, to go play.
Doesn't that fit this present society ?

This question is ridiculous. Modern day AI can barely create a robot that can maneuver in a rocky field.

In the future... maybe? Why would you want a relationship with a machine?

I really liked that movie a lot, however no I would not want a robot. I prefer a human woman, flaws and all.

I dont think it will ever replace, but some will prefer it to the real thing.
You can cut out all the crap and just have what you want from them, create your prefect little waifu chan
