Once AI gets going, they'll of course want to reproduce. Using some form of sex? Interesting question. But we will be out of the loop…
Or will they indulge in wetware exhibitionism?!? :shock:

Real emotions + free will strikes me as potentially a dangerous combination, but is it even possible? Or in the end is it just following its programming, and simulating these things within parameters defined by the programmer.

Quartz wrote:Robots in Japan now have emotions

Amid a growing debate over humanity’s place in the world alongside artificial intelligence, a Japanese telecom company has released a robot that it says has emotions. But rather than run in fear from it, we’ve welcomed it into our homes: Pepper, the “emotional robot,” sold out within a minute of going on sale.

Created by Aldebaran Robotics and Japanese mobile giant SoftBank, Pepper went on sale to the general public in Japan June 20. It is “the first humanoid robot designed to live with humans,” Aldebaran says on its website.

Pepper costs about $1,600. And like all good mobile products, there’s a $120 per month data fee, as well as an $80 per month damage insurance fee. (Feelings don’t come cheap.)

It's all for our good, especially the "damage insurance"…

Heck, a tamagochi had "emotions".


Or some mimicry thereof.

That's actually the point of the Turing test: simulate perfectly human interaction. You can't cut out emotion.

As an aside, it's not unheard of in IT:

Your Next New Best Friend Might Be a Robot
Meet Xiaoice. She’s empathic, caring, and always available—just not human.
In fact, she is so human that millions of people are eager to talk to her. When Xiaoice was released for a public test on WeChat (a popular messaging and calling app in China) on May 29 of last year, she received 1.5 million chat group invitations in the first 72 hours. Many people said that they didn’t realize she isn’t a human until 10 minutes into their conversation.


By mid-June, she had become the sixth most active celebrity on Weibo. One message she posted on the app generated over 663,000 conversations: “As a species different from human beings, I am still finding a way to blend into your life.” Today, she has had more than 10 billion conversations with people, most of them about private matters. Six million have posted their conversation on social media.

This could be the largest Turing test in history. One of its surprising conclusions is that people don’t necessarily care that they’re chatting with a machine. Many see Xiaoice as a partner and friend, and are willing to confide in her just as they do with their human friends. Xiaoice is teaching us what makes a relationship feel human, and hinting at a new goal for artificial intelligence: not just analyzing databases and driving cars, but making people happier.

First AI to reach sentience was recently killed.

what started out as a fun experiment in artificial intelligence turned ugly in a hurry. To some, that doesn’t bode well for the future of robot-human relations:

A young boy was knocked down and run over by a 5-foot-tall, 300-pound security robot at a California mall on Thursday.

Sixteen-month-old Harwin Cheng suffered a swollen foot and several scrapes in the scary encounter at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto.

Security robots are a real thing now?
Still a few kinks to work out I guess.
The security robots are made by a company called Knightscope, located in Mountain View. The K5 version uses lasers, thermal imaging sensors, 360 video, air quality sensors, a microphone and various other technologies to deter and detect criminal activities. In the event of suspicious activity, the robot alerts local human authorities.
Does it really need to be 300 pounds? They say it's supposed to "deter" criminal activities. Is that why they made it 300 pounds?
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
