Can not find a wife? No problems. Just create a robot and marry it. This is exactly what the Chinese engineer did.
Zheng Jiajia, a 31-year-old artificial intelligence developer who designs and builds robots in the Chinese city of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, created a robot woman in late 2016, the South China Morning Post reported.
A female robot named Inin, can pronounce simple words, recognize Chinese characters, some images and even say a few simple phrases.
It is reported that Zheng married Inin during a modest wedding ceremony. According to the traditional custom, the “bride” was dressed in a black dress, and her head was covered with a red cloak.
The engineer obviously hopes to upgrade his robot wife with time, and perhaps he will teach her how to move. Naturally, he also hopes that she can help him around the house.
About marriage Zheng wrote in South China Morning Post – the oldest English-language newspaper in Hong Kong
Zheng graduated from Zhejiang University in 2011 and received a master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence. The newspaper reports that he works in the company Dream Town – a technology center, where they develop the latest Internet technologies and start-ups.
A friend who attended the “wedding” said that Zheng decided to marry a robot, because he was tired of constant complaints from his relatives about the fact that he is still a bachelor.
Who was at the “wedding”? The newspaper wrote that there was his mother and friends, and his colleagues were also present at the ceremony. He even carried his “bride” in his arms.
