Putting out a warning now, this episode contains material on sexual health.
The Question for today:
“With AI you can you lose the humanity?” -Summary
Nils and Matt discuss a follow-up statement and question that was posted after the last episode on AI in psychiatry. The listener states “AI must be flexible and compromise…it can cause more harm to the consumer”. This may cause an AI to be ridged and not adapt but stick to what they are programmed to find.
Can you study humanity and can you replicate it in AI?
People are not great at guessing expressions and we actually practice and teach skills on labeling emotions. AI might be able to actually read an emotion more effectively.
We then dive into the future when it comes to sex and sexual health with sex robots. Texas recently had a news article on a brothel that was staffed by sex robots. This new technology has already made it into the mainstream and the idea was even in the movie Lars and the Real Girl starring Ryan Gosling.
We then talk about this article here on the reduction of sexual intercourse in our youth. Nils ask Matt on why he thinks sex may be decreasing. Matt talks about technology might be decreasing the need for interpersonal relationships. Easy access to technology gives us instant gratification and we may not seek it from face to face interactions.
