Today co-directors Noel Sharkey and Aimee van Wynsberghe held a press release for the release of the FRR’s first consultation report: Our Sexual Future With Robots. The aim of this consultation report is to present an objective summary of the issues and various opinions about what could be our most intimate association with robots. We do not contemplate or speculate about far future robots with personhood – that could have all manner of imagined properties. We focus instead on significant issues that we may have to deal with in the foreseeable future over the next 5 to 10 years.

See articles about the report in The Telegraph and The Guardian.
