The Artificial Lover: Our Intimate Future with Machines

Short thesis

Kate will explore the topic of sex robots and more broadly the impact of sex tech.


A few years ago, Kate began to explore the particular ways in which sex, gender and sexuality might be incorporated into cognitive systems such as sexual companion robots; since then she has become a driving force in the field of intimacy and technology. She will talk about "sex robots", the impact they (will) have on society, as well as issues surrounding them such as gender politics, diversity, surveillance and violence.
