By 2050, people will not only be having sex with robots, they'll also be attempting to marry them. So says scientist and author David Levy, who recently filed a Ph.D. thesis at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands entitled, "Intimate Relationships with Artificial Partners." Despite the brashness of his claims, Levy is no fresh-faced postdoctoral researcher. He has already published a book on artificial intelligence (Robots Unlimited) and his latest book, Love and Sex with Robots, which was adapted from his dissertation, is published on November 6th.
