And artificial intelligence researcher, David Levy, from the Netherlands has predicted that by the year 2050, people will be marrying robots—but only if it's trendy. According to Levy, the fate of our marital prospects with machinery lies in the hands of the women's magazine writers, according to Levy, "Once you have a story like 'I had sex with a robot, and it was great!' appear someplace like Cosmo magazine, I'd expect many people to jump on the bandwagon." Actually, at this point, we probably would—as long as the robot looks like Ryan Gosling and comes with a Hitachi Magic Wand attachment. [MSNBC]
