Chinese man 'marries' robot he built himself

A Chinese artificial intelligence engineer has given up on the search for love and “married” a robot he built himself.

Zheng Jiajia, 31, decided to commit after failing to find a human spouse, his friend told Qianjiang Evening News.

Zheng had also become tired of the constant nagging from his family and pressure to get married, so he turned to a robot he built late last year and named Yingying.

China has one of the worst gender gaps in the world, mainly due to sex-selective abortions after the introduction of the country’s widely criticised one-child policy, which for decades controlled how many children each family could have.

There are 113.5 men for every 100 women in China, according to the latest figures published by the World Economic Forum. The gender imbalance, coupled with changing attitudes towards marriage among the country’s middle class, means many men will never find wives.

From the bot, or for the bot?

He's gonna cheat on her with the toaster.



He probably considers it a PC 'action figure' and not a sex doll.

Well... if the robot looks like this:

I can see why he'd go for it. Though I'm not sure that he's going to like the results in the long run.
