As robots become an ever increasing part of our daily lives, humans could soon find love with the machines, according to a new report.
The report suggests that over a quarter of 18-34 year-olds will feel it’s normal to form friendships and even romantic relationships with robots in the future instead of humans.
And it seems that men are more likely to embrace the bots, with the report indicating that males are three times more likely to form a relationship with a robot than women.
The report was created by Paris-based Havas, and examined the future of artificial intelligence, and people’s attitudes to the future of technology.
The findings were based on a survey of 12,000 people of mixed ages worldwide.
It found that in the UK, men were three times as likely to agree they could have a relationship with a robot in the future, compared to women.
