The new generation of Artificially Intelligent robots is equipped with human behavior and even the ability to respond realistically with sex. Recently Disney has designed a new generation of robots with natural human-like movements without the jerky mechanical characteristics of past robotic models. It makes sense that Disney would achieve this technical wonder since they utilized animatronics at Disney Land when it first opened in 1958 and have been perfecting the art ever since.
With companies such as Hansen Robots who are now inventing robots who can access the internet cloud for problem solving and expanding their learning capability their scientists estimate in 3 to 5 years robot logic and behavior may be indistinguishable from humans and they will blend seamlessly into our society. But, it will not be so easy a merger. Robots will be able to share a common vocabulary of accessible knowledge on the internet and deep into technical research while sharing it with other robots simultaneously. True self awareness equivalent to human consciousness will be attainable in the near future.
The late Physicist Steven Hawkings warned that once Artificially Intelligent robots permeate our society sooner or later they will look upon humans as inferior or perhaps even as a threat At that time with their superior ability to problem solve, physical durability and access to the worldwide web to exponentially expand their knowledge it seems the human race may be doomed. The old adage and I quote, " Your master will first appear to be your servant."
Deficiency of the human mind
Elon Musk, who has perfected the mass produced electric car has expressed doubt and even fear that Artificial Intelligence will overwhelm mankind in a short period of time as its learning curve expands at a rate much faster and efficiently then the human brain. Indeed in reviewing how government funded public schools have failed to turn out large numbers of successful students there is already a systemic problem with people who have become pacified with the internet, gaming, reality shows, ballgames, and drugs would already be easy to overcome by dedicated electronic intelligence.
Human robotic hybrid fetus
Even more shocking is the fact that the human race now stands at the threshold of creating a new hybrid species of mankind integrated with robots conceiving babies! Researchers at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have developed a method using nontechnology based microchips that can inject DNA codes into stem cells that have been designed to merge human and artificial tissue. This process could create life, a baby composed of human and nontechnology known as Transfection or Tissue Nano transfection (TNT). According to Doctor David Levy such capability now exists! This technique has already been used to heal wounds in record time by transmitting DNA to injury wounds to rapidly replace damaged tissue cells.
Not from a laboratory
Make no mistake, this is not making a test tube baby in a petri dish by uniting two human reproductive cells to combine into a zygote that can be implanted or inseminated into a human recipient. This is the same process as sexual reproduction only between a human partner and the robotic partner who can carry a developing fetus to full term labor and birth! This will facilitate the combination of artificially created cells, human DNA, and a baby as a result. The characteristics of the robot will also be transferred through DNA into the baby's own heredity!
There will be the psychological impact of humans and their sexual partners who are now coupled with an artificial intelligence that could soon equate with human level intelligence and perhaps surpass us! Yet, just as we have seen both men and women who have become so alienated that they can only feel safe and sexual with a love doll will now find a willing robotic partner with realistic responses. Perhaps men will no longer be forced to live with women whose sexual interest drops off quickly after the initial thrill of a new relationship, or hear the time tested excuse of, "Not tonight Dear, I have a headache."
Perhaps women have brought this upon themselves taking their man for granted, giving him so many mixed signals he never knows where he stands, or simply ridiculing him for wanting to make love when she is consistently not in the mood. Add that to the effect that Women's Liberation has had in trying to convince women they don't need a man or that men are pigs, or that independence is more important than having a relationship. This could mean the end of the normal biological outcome for female to man attraction and eventual marriage for the sake of having a family for reproducing children and providing for them. It seems the very near future will add a strange twist to our conventional concepts!
