Living and loving with robots
The development of intelligent sex
robots has made dramatic progress in recent years. To this date,
however, the cultural and social consequences of the resulting new
forms of techno-social human-machine interaction have hardly been
studied. Based on discourse-analytical and qualitative empirical
research, my research explores the potential of sex robots from a
sociological, philosophical and anthropological point of view and
questions the possibilities, limits and dangers of extending
sociality to machines.
The research project is funded by the TU Berlin’s postdoctoral sponsoring program.
