She found that some people can desire what robots offer — either in virtual form or as crude sex bots — even if it marks a step below emotional fulfillment with other human beings.Virtual girlfriends and boyfriends already abound in Japan, where dating simulator games have enjoyed popularity among females as well as males.I’m glad that the science march is happening, and more and more science enthusiasts have been speaking out.Government agency members have set up rogue Twitter accounts to report factual information to the media separate from their organization.Video games and online programs also offer virtual girlfriend (or boyfriend) experiences on smartphones and handheld video game consoles.The crude connections may signal a "robotic moment" for society where humans begin turning to artificial intelligence to fulfill emotional needs, said Sherry Turkle, director of MIT's Initiative on Society and Self.

And what is it to be human and alive and exercise your humanity in that kind of exchange? The test is named for British mathematician Alan Turing, one of the founders of computer science, who in 1950 attempted to answer one of the field's earliest questions: Can machines think?
To be clear, science denial is not uniquely right-wing, as there are a good handful of issues that the left tends to flop on.
That being said, it’s very clear that this march exists as a response to the Trump administration’s policies and actions thus far.
