The next decade will bring a diversity of love partners for us to choose from – lovebots with intelligent skin, cyborgs with sensory implants, tele-dildonic connected avatars, through to empathetic personal carers loving you day and night. There will be intense debate on the ethical issues that emerge.
As human cyborgs appear more often in our communities, as our friends bring robot lovers to dinner, as touch, caress and gaze technology converge, we will see virtual reality, augmented reality and holograms deepening and intensifying our virtual-physical immersive experiences.
This expert panel will debate this looping of our senses and emotions with these ‘non-human humans’.
