In what could be seen as taking a leaf out of science fiction books, a new study reveals that a large section of people will be romancing actual robot lovers by 2025.
The report mentioned that these robots would know humans' every need and minister to it accordingly, CNet reported.
In 2013, 9 percent of people expressed their cheeriness at the idea of robot sex.
Robots would threaten current jobs more than ever. These won't merely be jobs that require automation but the jobs of the white-collar variety, those that involve a touch of politics, as well as a heap of patience. Almost half the experts believe that the advance of robot deployment will mean the advance of human unemployment. They fear greater income inequality, and even heightened social disorder.
Jonathan Grudin, Microsoft's principal researcher, believes technology has always been a net jobs creator, he said although there have always been unemployed people, but still there would be no shortage of things that would needed to be done.
