A scientist is sounding the alarm bell that it is only a matter of time until sexbots get hacked and become dangerous killers. He says once the AI is hacked that the hacker will have total control over them and they ‘absolutely’ are capable of killing and harming. He says the sexbots won’t get a mind of their own like on Westworld, but will simply get hacked and then follow the hacker’s commands.
They run on an operating system, similar to a computer, but easier to hack than a phone. It sounds to me like they are going to give passengers who bring sexbots on planes a lot of trouble, since they could be seen as security threats! Is the CIA going to use them as hired assassins?
Another thing is it seems like sexbots could easily be programmed to tape the encounter, and then the footage could be used to blackmail the user. While there are security concerns regarding any new technology, the positive possibilities of sexbots influence on society outweighs any negative risks. Sexbots are a pancea for the lonely, the disabled, the bereaved, for the sexually inexperienced and more. Society’s knee jerk reaction is always to look down on things it doesn’t understand. It will take time for sexbots to gain acceptance as useful to society. But eventually, they will become not only accepted, but likely viewed as a luxury good, which is desirable to have.
