This man from China has brought artificial intelligence to the next level by marrying one of his creations.
Zheng Jiajia, 31, is an engineer and an artificial intelligence expert who designs and creates robots in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province. He created the “female” robot at the end of last year and married the robot in a simple ceremony last Friday after failing to find a human spouse.
He named the robot Yingying, and “she” can identify Chinese characters and images, and even say a few simple words! He certainly is an expert for creating a talking robot!
Yingying wore a black suit on the day of the ceremony and her head was covered with a red scarf, it is a traditional Chinese wedding ritual. Witnesses to the event were Zheng’s mother and his friends.
Zheng plans to upgrade his robot wife to enable her to walk and help out with household chores.
Man, this guy is smart, now he doesn’t have to go through couple’s quarrel! I can’t help but keep thinking of an animation series I know of, “Chobits”. This guy is literally living the life of the main character in the anime.
