I have been following these reports about the robots that have been designed to look like beautiful women. Dave Barry and Matt Drudge have posted about this as well. One is a copy of Scarlet Johannson, which creeped me out enough. Couldn’t she sue the inventor for stealing her image? But now the second one, who looks Chinese, holds her head in a submissive manner, and addresses her male creators as “my lord.” There was a recent post on Salon.com by Jennifer Seaman Cook, “From Siri to sexbots: Female AI reinforces a toxic desire for passive, agreeable and easily dominated women”
My lord, indeed!
