Man Tired Of Searching For A Woman Finally Marries A Robot
A Chinese engineer has ‘married’ a robot after being fed up after years of searching for a human spouse to no avail. Zheng Jiajia is a 31-year-old artificial intelligence expert, and built his future ‘wife’ at the end of last year, according to the South China Morning Post.
Named Yingying, the bizarre robot can identify Chinese characters and images, and even say a few simple words, and the creator has plans to upgrade the bot so she’ll one day be able to walk and do chores around the house.
The pair ‘married’ on Friday in a simple ceremony in which the robot was adorned with a traditional red scarf over her head.
Zheng’s mother and friends attended the wedding, and told local news sources that the move came after Zheng grew frustrated in his search to find a girlfriend, according to SCMP.
While the marriage may seem bizarre, experts have increasingly warned that robot-human relationships will become far more common in the years to come.
