From Pygmalion falling for his chiseled Galatea to Dr. Frankenstein marveling at his creature, humans have been enthralled by the possibilities of emotional relationships with their technological creations. Synthesizing cutting-edge research in robotics with the psychology and cultural history of artificial intelligence, Love and Sex with Robots explores this fascination and its far-reaching implications. David Levy's shocking yet persuasive argument is that the entities we once deemed cold and mechanical will soon become the objects of real companionship and human desire.
