Transactions on Love and Sex with Robots Call for Papers http://post.spmailtechno.com/f/a/mX_dOcLc_NIMcM0MkODG4Q~~/AAKfTwA~/RgRdqsRiP0QYaHR0cHM6Ly90bHNyLnB1YnB1Yi5vcmcvVwNzcGNCCgAA4pDJW7AWh-1SImNoaS1hbm5vdW5jZW1lbnRzQGxpc3RzZXJ2LmFjbS5vcmdYBAAAAAA~















Call for Papers



What will robots be like ten, twenty and more years from now? What will they be able to accomplish? How will human-robot relationships have advanced? What place in society will be occupied by robots? These are just some of the questions which will be debated in the pages of this new publication.



Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence have had a huge impact on society, an impact that will only increase with further advances in hardware and software technologies. Robots are the most remarkable product of these developments in computing and AI, many of them being designed in a humanlike form and endowed with humanlike capabilities: talking, hearing, seeing, moving and performing complex tasks such as dancing, conducting an orchestra, rescuing victims at disaster sites, playing musical instruments, and beating a world champion at chess.



As robots become more human like in their appearance and their capabilities, and as they come to be regarded more and more as our companions and assistants in all aspects of daily life, different questions beg to be answered. We need to contemplate what life will be like when robots can imitate human behaviour sufficiently to be regarded, in some sense, as our equals. And when we humans have adapted our ways of life in order to interact fully with robots as alternative people, and to benefit fully from our relationships with them, such questions on the future of human-robot interactions and human-robot relationships are the raison d'etre of this journal. What civil rights and legal rights should robots be granted? What are the ethics of humankind's interactions with robots? Will robots have empathy? Will their personalities and emotions mimic our own? Will robots be programmed with social intelligence, or can they acquire it through a learning process? Will robots be alive in any human like sense, and if so, how?



The topics which we group under the umbrella phrase "future robot life" are many and varied, and the list will doubtless expand with time. We shall start with the following:











Animal-robot interfaces

Biological behaviours

Human-robot reproduction
