Headline: Lonely (beta) men are increasingly turning to Siri for love
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/10/...ts-for-lo/

Quote:Men are increasingly turning to virtual assistants to have sexually explicit conversations, it has been claimed.

Some teenagers and "truckers" who do not have partners are also developing feelings for female and male-voiced chatbots such as Siri, one expert said.
Ilya Eckstein, the chief executive of Robin Labs, said his company's virtual assistant - Robin - was used by some men for up to 300 conversations a day.

He told The Times it was "mostly teenagers and truckers without girlfriends" who were turning to the virtual world.

"This happens because people are lonely and bored.... It is a symptom of our society," he said. "As well as the people who want to talk dirty, there are men who want a deeper sort of relationship or companionship."

He added to Quartz that people who use engage with their virtual assistants in such a way "want to flirt, they want to dream about a subservient girlfriend, or even a sexual slave". Virtual assistants - such as the iPhone's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana - are included on smartphones and computers to make life easier, allowing users to issue commands, such as "call mum", or easily search for nearby facilities such as restaurants and petrol stations.

But Eckstein believes five per cent of interactions with his company's chatbot are now sexually explicit. He also claims a third of conversations take place for no particular reason, with many users just wanting to chat.

Deborah Harrison, a writer for Microsoft's Cortana, told the Virtual Assistant Summit earlier this year that "a good chunk of the volume of early-on inquiries" were about the chatbot's sex life.

The issue has inspired films such as Her, which was released in 2013 and tells the tale of a lonely writer, who becomes obsessed with his operating system's virtual assistant, voiced by Scarlett Johansson.

I just.....yea.

That's a great biz opportunity right there.....an app that will talk dirty or carry a conversation with you.

Run it like a TomTom which features the voices of many celebrities. A trucker could do "the dirty" with Pam Anderson, Kim K, and Farrah all on the same trip.

Not surprised, many in the manosphere have predicted men will move to virtual reality porn/'girlfriends' and possibly even robotic girlfriends that act and look better than real women. This is just the first step.

Not happening. - redbeard in regards to ETH flippening BTC

Porn has driven many technical advances. Maybe this will be a first step to giving me an actually useful artificial assistant in my phone so I can do research and planning hands free, when my hands are busy but my mind is available.

I'm setting the stopwatch on how long it is before a virtual woman can legally sue you for unwanted advances.

And so it begins.

Feminists pushed and pushed and pushed.

I hope they like what they get.

I don't think this is a real thing, just some words strung together to make some clickbait article.

It is a clickbait advertisement disguised as an article. But if this isn't already happening it will be in the not too distant future.

RE: Headline: Lonely (beta) men are increasingly turning to Siri for love
Well no shit it's mostly truckers doing this. If it weren't for them, radio talk shows would never have anybody calling in. I don't blame these guys at all, as I'm sure having a job like that would make anyone desperate for human interaction.

This has nothing to do with feminists.

RE: Headline: Lonely (beta) men are increasingly turning to Siri for love
The one and only time Siri was even remotely useful was the time I accidentally pocket activated her during foreplay. I was talking dirty to my girl and grinding on her and Siri piped up with "Excuse me! Your language!" It was a good laugh.

If I ask Siri to find directions or search for something on the internet I will never get back anything even remotely close to what I want to know.

If the AI was good enough, maybe people could practice game and use it in the real world. Or am I too optimistic?

I just asked Siri to suck my cock, she replied there was no reason to do that. I'll be the judge of that Apple.

A game-aware girl who isn't a hamster could make a killing as a virtual game coach/practice subject.
