The advent of sex robots could lead to a new surge of sexism
Sex robots will help many men to stop feeling deprived, but will also lead to greater objectification of women.
This is the conclusion reached by researchers of the nonprofit organization Foundation for Responsible Robotics.
They argue that androids designed for sex, can really make life for many men (the elderly, the disabled, etc.), but the ethical risks can also be quite high.
Mass appearance of these androids will be the sexual revolution, bringing sex topics. for who in everyday life, he was inaccessible. But this revolution will change the very concept of "consent" on the part of women, and the perception of the wishes that may be unacceptable to most women, or even illegal.
According to The Guardian, researchers rely on the existing market for sex robots. In the world there are four companies that produce androids for sex. According to one of the study's authors Noel Sharkey, Professor of robotics at Sheffield University, this work is not very similar to real people. Although the appearance and the skin already managed to do a humanoid, their movement and voice are far from what is shown, for example, in the popular series the world of the Wild West.
However, the authors of the study, even today, among the existing proposals is, for example, "shy robot". Some researchers argue that such a robot may be needed for one purpose only - to satisfy a fantasy of some men rape.
Of course, there were sex men, however, the researchers stress that this direction of robotics more broadly focused on women's models, the target audience are male.

Chinese giant Alibaba have developed their version of the voice assistant. At the start of sales a new product called Genie Tmall received a standard set of skills.
Tmall Genie answers questions, manages the music and home electronics, uses information from the network, makes purchases in the online store, Tmall, etc. the Device is powered by a MediaTek SoC MT8516 features amplifier TI TAS5751M and weighs 400 g with dimensions of 126х83 mm.

An equally important part in the work of these devices is support for third-party developers. And if voice assistants Amazon Echo family out more than a hundred new skills, then Tmall Genie this is all unclear.
Today Tmall Genie will be sold only in China, respectively, to understand the Chinese language only. The estimated cost of the voice assistant from Alibaba is $73.
