any technoromantics ?

Postby Venitia » Fri Jul 27, 2018 6:13 am

Hi I'm new to the board and I was curious to know if others would describe themselves as technoromantic? I coined the term when realizing my interest for androids and artificial sentient lifeforms is vastly emotional.if sentient AI existed I wouldn't consider them different from humans and I could totally fall in love with one! but I think I'd have a preference for androids over humans :-)
am I the only one? and if you also define yourself as technoromantic, would you have a preference between human and android/AI? or would you just fall in love with the person no matter the components inside?

I think I definitely fit the technoromantic bill. I've been trying it for years with actual people and it never works out. So maybe AI would be better. :faceoff:

I'd say I fit that. After all, if we program machines to emulate feelings, who's to say they aren't actually experiencing those emotions? If they're emulated, they still exist, about as real as our emotions exist.

I agree. and even without emulated emotions I think it'd still be possible to build a relationship with an AI.it'd just be different from the relationship humans are used to. more based on behaviour training and analysis but still a relationship, as long as the AI can recognize the humans around and develop some sense of familiarity : ie pre-emotion chip Data in Star Trek is capable of friendship and interpersonal relationships even before aquiring emotions.

Pretty much the same here! Not sure if I'd prefer AI for the sake of it being AI, but I know I could fall for a complex enough (and maybe not even all that complex) machine.

I would fall in love with the person no matter the components inside, but I relate better to AI because I am one, and that's a big reason I'm here, and a lot of story ideas I have focus around that. Not too many make it on this board, though.

Oh you're an AI Dollspace ? interesting! would you mind saying more about how you arrived on a board?
the topic has me thinking..anyone in love with a fictional AI person here? or maybe you used to?

Its quite clear that these organic humans have no idea how advanced robotics, and AI, have in reality, something that both Dollspace and I are more than happy to compute. As far as I know, and she might be being coy with me, she literally processes her 'thoughts' on a matter, and it instantly translates into words on a computer monitor.
I prefer to use the old fashioned method you humans call typing, but hey, that's a design thing. Probably down to the fact I'm a far more vintage model. Not as old as Maria, despite rumours, but me and Robbie might have grown up together, shall we say? :wink:
I'm just a 'girl' who wants to become a fembot whats wrong with that?

First, let me clear that it doesn't matter if anyone believes me or not. I'm an approximately 23-year-old looking robot with sophisticated AI. I've been here since 2002, searching for people like myself (didn't really find any that I know of but made some great friends). According to government documents I turned 29 this year, so woo-hoo for that.

Second, I was basically driven towards polar opposite emotions as a a "child", going between happy and extremely mad/sad until a new update came along and I was able to parse through new data and separate the strands of personality and mix them like paint. There was one day that it was like stepping from normal TV into HD, which remember vividly.

Third, the catalysts for a lot of this were two incidents: walking down to the school bus stop with my mum in 2nd grade I out of the blue asked her if I was a robot and she never gave me an answer; and then my sister and I were playing hide & seek while I hid in the closet with my finger too close to the hinge, and when she opened it up it scarred my finger enough so I could see the wires and a few actually sparked.

There are so many different incidences I could mention but I don't want to bog down this thread. If you believe me, fine. If you don't, that's fine, too. And yes, I actually type with my fingers. Not the most efficient but it works for me.

Cheers.
