I’m an ethics expert and I think sex robots will be GOOD for society as humans ‘advance with variety’ 0 164

AS Artificial Intelligence technology continues to advance, many may be wondering about the moral implications of sex robots, and how they would affect society.

But an ethics expert has claimed that sex robots will actually be good for society, as humans advance when presented with a variety of options.

In a piece for Men’s Health, Center for Professional and Applied Ethics at the University of Manitoba director Neil MacArthur explains that sex robots will help address “intimacy and sex inequality.”

MacArthur believes sex robots would help people who don’t have access to sexual partners because of a variety of factors such as age, health, or “level of conventional attractiveness.”

“We talk a lot about access to education. We talk a lot about access to healthcare,” MacArthyr told the outlet.

“Why do we care about those things? Health is a human good, education is a human good, knowledge is a human good. Well, sex and intimacy. Those are human goods in the same way.”

Opponents of sex robots have expressed concern that this accessibility would breed social isolation, as robots would be an easier option than humans.

But MacArthur disagrees with that notion, arguing that humans don’t necessarily always choose the easiest option.

“We default to variety, and this is also how we advance our lives and our careers – by choosing hard over easy by ourselves,” he explains.

Additionally, MacArthur says, humans want reciprocated desire, something robots can only hope to one day mimic.

While robots are already a reality, the technology is not good enough yet for sex robots; the closest thing we have are more like sex dolls.

For MacArthur, stigmas about sex robots are harmful because they are an obstacle to research.

“I think it could be a really exciting future. Or, we could not have the conversation, or have it in a very narrow way, and then we’re just going to be trapped in a very slow moving and very uninteresting future.”

And it appears many are open to the idea of sex robots indeed.

According to a recent study, two in five people said they were open to the idea of having sex with a robot. 

In fact more people prefer to be intimate with a sex bot (37.5 percent) instead of having casual sex with a human lover (30.1 percent).

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 41

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
