The multinational survey conducted by the research team also found that people are uncomfortable with robots that look and act like humans, confirming that we are accustomed to interacting with smart machines, from robotic vacuum cleaners, and smart speakers that can control lights and AI aids in our phones.
According to the study, millions of people ask Siri, Alexa or Google to help with homework, weather forecasts, or reserve a table for dinner every day, while the Dutch team explained that developments and the shift towards a world dominated by robots and artificial intelligence devices are already apparent.
Having a robot that can clean the living room is completely different from a person taking a robot on a date or to the bedroom. In all 11 countries, only 12% support the idea of dating a robot, and 15% are neutral, while 72% completely oppose it. People were also asked about the extent of their agreement or disagreement that it is acceptable for people to have a robot as a romantic partner, that is, a girlfriend or a friend, and the authors explained that there is a large variation by country in terms of levels of acceptance of robots as romantic partners.
The Netherlands was the most accepted, with 30% agreeing that this is acceptable, 23% did not and 45% completely opposing it, and Sweden, South Korea, the United States, South Africa and Germany had more than 10% of those surveyed agreeing with the idea of a robotic romance. Greece, Poland, France, Spain and Brazil are the least supportive of robotic relationships, and all of them are less than 10% of agreeing as a good idea, with Greece and Poland the least supportive of people who date a robot at 5%, France and Spain at 6%, and Brazil at 8%.
It is worth noting that in all the countries surveyed, people expect rapid developments in the capabilities of an intelligent machine to understand and communicate like a human being.
