    Default Researchers: Sex Robots Should Have ‘Consent-Modules’

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    University researchers from institutions around the globe are working together to design “ethical” sex robots that have to consent before engaging in intercourse. They envision “consent modules” added to sex robots that humans would engage with before sexual relations.

    Anco Peeters of Australia’s University of Wollongong and Pim Haselager, an associate professor at The Netherlands’ Radboud University, published a research article recently that made the case for “ethical” sex robots.

    In the article, which was [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] this week by The College Fix, Haselager and Peeters propose that sex robots should have to consent prior to intercourse with their owners. The researchers argue that a “consent-module” would cultivate compassion in their owners.

    We propose that virtue ethics can be used to address ethical issues central to discussions about sex robots. In particular, we argue virtue ethics is well equipped to focus on the implications of sex robots for human moral character. Our evaluation develops in four steps. First, we present virtue ethics as a suitable framework for the evaluation of human–robot relationships. Second, we show the advantages of our virtue ethical account of sex robots by comparing it to current instrumentalist approaches, showing how the former better captures the reciprocal interaction between robots and their users. Third, we examine how a virtue ethical analysis of intimate human–robot relationships could inspire the design of robots that support the cultivation of virtues. We suggest that a sex robot which is equipped with a consent-module could support the cultivation of compassion when used in supervised, therapeutic scenarios. Fourth, we discuss the ethical implications of our analysis for user autonomy and responsibility.

    Don't need consent modules.
    Just marry the robot.
    Quickest way I know to have a woman quit consenting to sex

    While it seems funny, it's representative of our future in more ways than one. Robots will be protected and hate speech against robots will be a crime in California and NY, if not the nation.

    This is the point where my ability to apply rational and logical thought totally breaks down.

    Elon Musk, whatever else he may be, is warning about this "AI" thing. Well, here it is....

    What they should add to the robots is a chip or program that will self destroy them if they are about to harm or kill a human being even if they are told to do so by their owners. I am no fan of Elon Musk, but I do agreed with him that we have to very careful with the newer development in AI.
    The Terminators movie series are not to far from reality, the scenario portrayed in these movies could very well become true if AI is not properly regulated.

    Then your sex robot moves in with your best friend.
