Robots can replace humans for a variety of jobs, but prostitution seems like a profession that will stay human-only. That may not be the case, however, according to a new study. Researchers envision a future in which robots take the place of traditional sex workers in Amsterdam clubs, providing a safe, clean place for people to engage in their carnal desires.

In the year 2050, an increase in sex trafficking and an outbreak of incurable sexually transmitted diseases draws people towards robots instead of humans, according to Ian Yeoman, paper coauthor and associate professor of management at Victoria Management School in New Zealand. He foresees hundreds of robots of every ethnicity roaming clubs in Amsterdam, providing “all inclusive service” for $10,000.

“Amsterdam’s red light district will all be about android prostitutes who are clean of sexual transmitted infections, not smuggled in from Eastern Europe and forced into slavery,”  Yeoman wrote in the paper. “The city council will have direct control over android sex workers controlling prices, hours of operations and sexual services.”

The new sex industry will be a boon for the city, as it will draw in more and more tourists but eliminate many of the problems that come with prostitution, such as drug use and violence, according to the paper.

If you cannot wait until 2050, there are options available today. Though not as sophisticated as the robots Yeoman predicts, there are four sex robots that are currently for sale.

Robots in a variety of configurations are making their way onto the battlefield now

________________________________________

In December the U.S Marine Corps took delivery of a platoon of cyber troops. Made by Marathon Targets, a firm based in Sydney, Australia, the robots look, move and even behave like people, providing an unprecedented level of realism for sharp shooters.

For example, when one of the robots is ‘killed’, the others will immediately scatter for cover.

A team of robotic smart targets can execute complex pre-planned scenarios, moving unpredictably in and out of sight of training instructors.

The robots were tested here in the States and won the approval of defense chiefs. The first batch was delivered to the base at Quantico, Virginia, in a deal worth $57 million Australian dollars.

“We are very gratified by the feedback from the shooters and the training community to our second-generation smart targets,”  said Dr. Alex Brooks, CEO of Marathon Targets. “Many people told us that these targets bring an urgently needed new level of realism to live-fire training.”

The mobile smart targets are armour-plated and based on Segway platforms. They are able to work as a team, moving freely across the range but remaining within a designated target area.

Marathon’s COO, co-founder Dr. Tobias Kaupp, added: “Even well-trained elite shooters thought that training with smart targets would greatly improve their marksmanship skills and, ultimately, their combat effectiveness. Many observers commented on how shooters visibly improved, even during the small amount of time that they spent with the system.”
