Researcher reports human/android offspring are possible

Article here. And the best part: No false allegations, no divorces, no child support/alimony, no nothing you don't want. Anyone who thinks it's men who are the endangered sex is not paying attention, at least as far as survival into the future is concerned. With technology, a single-sex human race is possible. But unlike natural single-sex species, the individuals will all be male, not female. Excerpt:

'Dr David Levy, a world leading artificial intelligence researcher, will explain how the genetic information of cells can be manipulated to create a baby with human and robot DNA in his key note speech at the Third International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots.

Speaking at the conference in London on Wednesday, December 20, Dr Levy will explain how advancements in cell biology and bio robotics have led to his extraordinary conclusion.

Ahead of his speech, Daily Star Online can exclusively reveal extracts of his radical research paper, titled “Can Robots and Babies Make Humans Together?”

In his conclusions, Dr Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots, will argue that “it is possible” for humans and robots to make babies given “recent progress in stem cell research and artificial chromosomes”.

In April 2016, Stanford University and the Valencia Infertility Institute announced a project in which human sperm, with tails, were created from skin cells.

In September 2016, researchers led by Tony Perry at the University of Bath reported that they had discovered a method of creating offspring without the need for a female egg.

This research allowed Dr Levy to conclude that a baby can be conceived without IVF treatment or sexual intercourse.

Kim and his team created the world’s first robotic chromosomes – a set of computerized DNA codes for creating artificial creatures that can have their own personality.

This virtual DNA could be injected into skin cells through TNT, thereby passing on its genetics to offspring, he will say.

Dr David Levy is speaking at the Third International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots on December 20, 2017.'
