This week we bring you a peek into our intimate futures. We are well over a year into the lockdown caused by this pandemic and our lives have changed inconceivably. Probably the biggest change though is our lack of intimacy with other people.
Technology is adapting though, as it always has. The telephone made communication with a distant loved one much easier. Algorithms in dating apps allow our future partner to get automatically shifted from the ghosters, the players and the people with no table manners. Most recently Zoom has become a verb which we all understand as a means to see the people we hold dear: friends, family, lovers, work colleagues…near and far.
Hear from some of our amazing staff here at XPRIZE on what intimacy means to them, how technology will aid our relationships and what their ideal robot date would look like.
We also feature an interview between journalist Amelia Abraham and our own A.I. technical lead, Neama Dadkhahnikoo.
