But a new study from Tidio, the maker of chatbots (a computer program that simulates human conversation via voice commands or text chats), found that 42% of those surveyed said they would have sex with a humanoid robot. , reports UK social media publisher LADbible.com.
And the poll of just over 1,200 people found that 39% believed they would be able to have a romantic relationship with a non-sentient being.

As for men, 48% wanted to sleep with robots and 43% thought they might fall in love with them.
The researchers also found that men in general were twice as likely to trust artificial intelligence as women.
Further, the study found that nearly 69% of college graduates believed robots could either take their jobs or make them obsolete in the next few years, and 78% believed AI would spread disinformation.
Still, over 45% thought positively about AI’s recovery of the economy, while 60% said they would use a self-driving taxi in heavy traffic.
Tidio used Mechanical Turk and Amazon’s Reddit for the study with 55% male and 45% female respondents with an average age of 39.
Respondents were asked to answer approximately 40 questions, most of which were based on scales or multiple choice.
