An engineer has married one of his robot dolls, and he’s very proud of his bride!
Finding the perfect match is hard and sometimes you just want to give up… but this guy found an alternative by creating his own ‘other half’!
Zheng Jiajia, a 31-year-old engineer, used to work at Huawei Company being specialized in AI (artificial intelligence) and robotics. He decided one day to open his own company, so he runs a startup called ‘Brain of Things’ which deals with AI and neural network technologies.
Even though he is a successful man, he faced constant rejection from his life partners and so, he decided to create his own wife robot. He had all the skills to built and programme his own robot in order to become the perfect match for him.
The female robot’s name is Yingying, is able to speak in simple phrases as a response to audio prompts and recognize Chinese images and characters. She was completely finished by the end of 2016 and a few months later, Zheng married Yingying even if their bond is not legal.
People believe that they ‘tied the knot’ just for promoting the company’s AI and neural network technologies. Zheng said that he honestly believe in marriage between humans and robots, as he wants to upgrade his wife in order to make her walk and do housework while they’re growing old. Also, specialists believe that by 2050, marriage between robots and humans will be legal.
