Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots

Kate Devlin's Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots

The idea of the seductive sex robot is the stuff of myth, legend and Science fiction. From the myth of Laodamia in Ancient Greece to twenty-first century shows such as Westworld, robots in human form have captured our imagination, our hopes and our fears. But beyond the fantasies there are real and fundamental questions about our relationship with Technology as it moves into the realm of robotics.

Turned On explores how the emerging and Future development of sexual companion robots might affect us and the Society in which we live. It explores the social changes arising from emerging technologies, and our Relationships with the machines that someday may care for us and about us. Sex robots are here, and here to stay, and more are coming.

Computer scientist and sex-robot expert Kate Devlin is our guide as we seek to understand how this Technology is developing. From robots in Greek myth and the fantastical automata of the Middle Ages through to the sentient machines of the Future that embody the prominent AI debate, she explores the 'modern' robot versus the robot servants we were promised by twentieth century sci-fi, and delves into the psychological effects of the technology, and Issues raised around gender politics, diversity, surveillance and violence. This book answers all the questions you've ever had about sex robots, as well as all the ones you haven't yet thought of.
