Today an FRR consultation report (of which I was co-author) was released. It is entitled Our Sexual Future with Robots. You can find the report here. Myself and co-director Noel Sharkey held a press conference at the Science Media Centre in London. See articles about the report in The Telegraph and The Guardian.
I was interviewed by the BBC about the report this morning. A quote:
There are absolutely some benefits to the technology but, like everything else, there is a balance. You have to strike a balance between lack of regulation – so we have all different uses and personifications of children and women as sexual objects – or you have overregulation and you stifle the technology. You have to find the way to balance so you really can harness the good.
