Why we must guard and legislate against human relationships with robots 

Dr Trudy Barber, course curator of Media & Digital Practice at the University of Portsmouth will be discussing the hot topic in AI - sex robots, deviation and innovation. She shares the stance that relationships with robots and AIs are inevitable with author of "Love and sex with robots" Dr. David Levy. She will be sharing an interesting viewpoint featuring media and fimography. 

In contrast Dr Kathleen Richardson, Senior Research Fellow in the Ethics of Robotics De Montfort University and leader of the Campaign Against Sex Robots discusses why she believes that we must maintain rigid boundaries between ourselves and the machine.
