Hoax but funny: Robot Programmed to Fall in Love with a Girl Goes too Far
Karina Sengupta stashed this in Diff
Is this... fiction?
Actually, I just discovered it's a hoax..whoops. A lot of people fell for it though, and as someone commented on an article I just read - In this age where we have a computer in our pocket, glasses that can snap pictures and automatic cars, this might not be so hard to believe!
And the hoax has been posted multiple times. On of the articles debunking the post http://motherboard.vice.com/blog/the-internet-keeps-falling-for-the-hoax-about-kenji-the-robot-programmed-to-love. Also just edited the title to add the disclaimer of the hoax :)
Even though it's a hoax, it does make you wonder about humanity's future.
Is it possible for a human to love a robot? And vice versa?
