According to Free Malaysia Today, Khalid Abu Bakar, the Inspector-General of Police, has declared the upcoming “Love and Sex with Robots” conference illegal. He has also warned organizers that action will be taken if they decide to go forward with the conference.
Khalid dismissed the sex conference as ridiculous, and questioned the reason behind organizing such an event.
According to TechRepublic, the second-annual event, organized by Adrian David Cheok and David Levy, would have explored a host of concerns surrounding human and humanoid robot interactions, not literally love and sex between humans and androids. The conference was designed to address ethical questions, including robot emotions, teledildonics, and more.
