Invitation to Submit Manuscripts - Call for Papers: Robotics Special Issue "Love and Sex with Robots"
Robotics is currently organizing a Special Issue entitled "Love and Sex with Robots ". As Guest Editors we kindly invite you to submit your manuscript for consideration for this peer-reviewed Special Issue.
Since more and more robots are being developed with the ability to perform tasks independent of assistance, the perception of them as “mere machines” is being re-evaluated. Research and development all over the world is rapidly experimenting and commercializing robots that perform everyday services. The major challenge for humans will be how to deal with the close proximity of social robots and the juxtaposition of new interactions. Social robots will play major roles in care giving, education, information and communication, etc., and when social robots are created with faultless physical dexterity and social skills, humans will naturally create new relationships with them. These connections will be diverse, and will compel society to redefine the prevailing definitions of human relations and bonds.
The topics of interest (but not limited to):
Intelligent electronic sex hardware
Moral & ethical Approaches
