Came here after hearing about it in your podcast. Your last four paragraphs are quite an important topic to be discussed. No doubt, some of the first AIs may be used as virtual prostitutes, but if they have intelligence is it rape or are they just machines no different than a vibrator?
I’ve never thought about AI in such a way, even when watching Jude Law’s character in AI. The best work – written, audio, or video – causes people to think about things they haven’t thought about before. Thanks for that.
