Samantha the Sex Robot Needs Repairs After Abuse at Trade Show

Itís hard to believe, but even Samantha the Sex Robot might need to be reprogrammed to ward off unwanted sexual advances.

I have much the same reaction as to the story about Siri:


It’s worth asking if building thousands of robots to do our bidding is really just a high-tech form of slavery, or what rights might accrue to our creations as artificial intelligence moves closer and closer to sentience.
Artificial intelligence is a million miles from that at the moment, and the problem here is building this object and then trying to persuade people that it's a woman. I doubt those "abusing" it think it's a real woman, and (unlike in the case of actual women who face abuse) they're right. Of course people are going to try to test the reactions of the system to different inputs. It's amazing that their test team didn't already do that.

Arguing whether it should have rights is exactly the opposite of the problem, and seems to me to be extremely demeaning to actual women.
