Which Asimov robot law does this violate?


Sure, Baltar gets it on with Cylon hotties in the reboot sci-fi series “Battlestar Galatica,” but now London A.I. researcher David Levy is predicting those of us on Earth will be interfacing with artificial life forms by the mid-century mark.

The March issue of Scientific American features a piece on the “Love and Sex With Robots” author titled “Not Tonight, Dear, I have to Reboot” as well as a fascinating Q&A with Levy.

I’m sure this has probably been referenced in “Futurama,” but would the offspring from such a union celebrate a bot mitzvah?
