A recent prediction by a former top executive of Google is intriguing, saying AI robots may replace people for physical pleasure in the near future.
Mo Gawdat, the former chief business officer of X, the research and development department of Google, issued a warning that developments in artificial intelligence (AI) could change “love and relationships” and lead to encounters that are simulated as being just as fulfilling as those that occur in real life.
“Just think of all the illusions we’re now unable to decipher, illusions from the truth… S*x happens in the brain, at the end of the day. The physical side of it is not that difficult to simulate,” Gawdat noted.
He expounded on the notion that in the not-too-distant future, virtual reality and augmented reality headsets might be used to recreate sensual experiences, such as Apple’s Vision Pro or Quest 3.
Additionally, he pointed out that the idea was fairly complex because it all came down to brain signals that caused feelings of physical and social intimacy.
According to Decrypt, technological advancements like Neuralink, which creates direct neural connections between technology and the neurological system, can potentially eliminate the need for human partners.
Humans, no longer needed
Gawdat said, “If technology enables you to experience the same sensations as your partner, why would the presence of another being be essential?”
Gawdat, the former executive, added that artificial brain signalling might be used to mimic even the psychological and emotional facets of relationships.
He brushed off discussions over the true sentience of AI bots, saying that if people believe these illusions are real, their reality is subjective and irrelevant.
The Executive on the AI robots debate
The continuous debate about this constantly shifting environment’s moral and ethical implications is fractured.
Critics who worry that AI will soon replace human connections and knowledge-based sectors have called for halting AI research and development.
They also see AI as able to satisfy human aspirations and dreams.
A notable example is the 23-year-old Snapchat personality Caryn Marjorie, who created a virtual version of herself powered by ChatGTP that can have private discussions.
The remarkable CarynAI AI-powered s*xbot has attracted over 1,000 boyfriends who each pay $1 per minute for its services.
It seems the movie Judge Dredd was right, after all.
