Robotic Sex Doll Speaker

Patrick Schwerdtfeger is a business futurist specializing in technology trends including artificial intelligence, virtual reality and disruptive innovation, and the rise of chatbot/socialbot sex dolls combines all three. Patrick is the author of the award-winning book Anarchy, Inc.: Profiting in a Decentralized World with Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain (2018, Authority Publishing) and a regular speaker for Bloomberg TV. He has studied natural language processing (NLP) and emerging use cases (like Siri, Google Now, and Amazon Alexa) as well as the trend towards virtual reality and virtual experiences. He’s lectured at various academic institutions including Stanford and Purdue Universities. As disturbing as robotic sex dolls are (and they are indeed extremely disturbing), the trend is already well established and, sadly, inevitable. There are already brothels operating today where the sex dolls are more popular than the human women. Patrick’s focus on disruptive innovation and exponential technologies gives him a unique perspective to the cultural and societal changes we’re expected to undergo in the next few years.

Expert on Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality

 
We’re all waiting for a VR/AR headset to gain broad market adoption. That has not happened yet, but it’s likely to happen in the next few years. As soon as that happens, the world of mixed reality will expand quickly. All major B2C brands will begin developing VR “experiences” as part of their standard marketing efforts. These experiences will be available on their respective websites, allowing people to spend hours each day exploring the latest experiences from companies like Ferrari, Coca Cola, or Disney. These experiences will become more and more immersive, and the virtual world will soon be much more alluring than the real world, particularly for people who are lower on the socioeconomic ladder. It’s only natural that pornography and the sex trade participate in this trend.
 
It’s important to understand the financial incentives behind these trends. Anatomically-correct robotic sex dolls can be rented out by the hour, or sex act, just like prostitutes. Meanwhile, these dolls are gorgeous, catering to every possible fantasy and fetish. Large breasts, tiny waists, beautiful faces, and thick shiny hair are all easily created. The latest iterations are heated, self-lubricating, and provide audio feedback, all driven by artificial intelligence and socialbot technologies. Leading companies include:

For those who have limited sexual options in the real world or who have fantasies that aren’t easily satisfied with regular human women, robotic sex dolls offer an attractive no-hassle alternative. As stated at the beginning, these trends are disturbing and dangerous, but they are unfolding right in front of our eyes, and we need to confront the implications for human relationships and sexuality. These dolls generally come equipped with three points of entry and removable “vaginal sleeves” to accommodate individual preferences as well as hygienic considerations. With a little imagination, you can easily see the emerging business models.
 


 
There is a deficit of 30-million women to men in China, largely due to the one child policy. A close friend adopted two Chinese girls, as did millions of others, leaving a shortage of women in China itself. That means 30 million Chinese men will be unable to secure female relationship partners. Incredibly, there is an even bigger deficit, 40 million, in India, so that totals 70 million between those two countries alone. This is an enormous market with enormous profit potential. Sex doll brothels are opening around the world (including South Korea, Moscow, Barcelona, Torino, Houston, Toronto, and Paris among many other cities) and we can expect that trend to accelerate.
 
Compare this business model with the chatbot “robotic companions for seniors” market. Robotic companions for seniors may replace a few salaries, and they may even charge some sort of monthly subscription fee, but the revenue opportunity pales in comparison with the robotic sex doll market where dolls can be rented out by the hour. And since the financial incentive is greater for “robotic companions for singles,” it’s only natural that development will advance more quickly in that area. Entrepreneurs already see the opportunity. This will happen quickly.

The impact of this inevitable trend will spell trouble for traditional relationships, and women in particular. There are already a host of unrealistic expectations placed on women by a misogynistic male-oriented society – be beautiful at all costs – and women will soon have to compete with sex dolls with perfect bodies and zero emotional baggage. This is part of a larger trend towards virtual worlds which will soon be undeniably more enjoyable than the real world we inhabit on Earth. This will pull people further apart, disconnecting the social fabric of modern human society. It will start at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder but will work it’s way up quickly. We will have to find ways to mitigate these trends because they destroy compassion, empathy, and human connection within our communities.
 


 
There are many people who postulate about the risks of artificial intelligence, but they often focus on the wrong areas. The risk of a super intelligence deciding to annihilate the human race is a distant and somewhat unlikely outcome. Yes, it could eventually happen, but there are plenty of risks that are here already. If you saw the movie “The Matrix” with Keanu Reeves, you’ll remember that humans were actually in cocoons, allowing the machines to harvest their energy while they obliviously lived their lives in a digital simulation. The assumption is that humans were forced into this situation against their will. In reality, humanity is voluntarily RUNNING towards that same situation. We can’t get there fast enough! Trends like interactive sex dolls are simply one manifestation of the larger trend, and we can learn plenty by dissecting the financial incentives and human instincts driving the technology forward.
