Nogen må jo stille de vigtige spørgsmål: Ville en BDSM-sexbot bryde den første af robotikken tre love?

The nature of my job is to predict ways humans will interact with a given technology—in this case, a robot designed for a sexualized situation. One of my first questions about a robot designed for BDSM interactions with humans would be to ask about the definitions of injure and harm from the robot’s perspective, and how the robots will accurately identify those conditions in people. Both of those words have multiple meanings that include very nuanced physical and emotional ramifications.

Noget helt andet er, at det job lyder ganske enkelt – Hvordan vil folk interagere med en given teknologi? Svar: De vil forsøge at have sex med den. Eller på anden måde udnytte den til sexrelaterede formål. Hvis det ikke kan lade sig gøre, vil teknologien fejle – farvel, Laserdisc, halløj DVD med lov til at vise porno.
