We love machines - we live, have sex and die with machines.

"Through the creation of robots, man first lives himself out as a human being."
[Ishiguro Hiroshi]


People are rapidly entering into emotional relationships with humanoids, chatbots, mindclones, etc., and already talk to smart speakers as if they were family or friends. We are only too willing to see robots and machines such as Sophia, Grace, Pepper, Alexa, Siri and others as trusted confidants, to share our questions, thoughts, preferences and even most intimate experiences with them. In doing so, we let them permeate our everyday lives and penetrate our most private thoughts and feelings – we allow them not only to monitor, but also to manipulate and ultimately govern our thoughts and feelings.

However, according to a well-known producer of humanoids, we do not need to worry about the future: We are building incredibly expressive, life-like robots that will establish relationships of a trusting and committed nature with humans, that will serve, entertain and teach us. They will ensure our well-being with devotion, loyalty and great dedication.
