What Do Robots Think Humans Really Need?

We’re kind of e/acc when it comes to AI and VR, which means that we want to speed full-throttle into an AI future free of disease and war, where everyone has friends, and you can be young for your whole life, if you want to be. The National Parks will still be there for hiking, humans will still be around to hug (and more!) but if e/acc means that in a year or two, or sooner, a gigantic brain will cure cancer in a heartbeat, and then cure those other diseases that not many people have, why not?

What Do Human Want? What Do Humans Need?

And, as we wrote very very recently, AI can create worlds for you to visit in VR, whatever you dream of, like Pampa Kampana dreaming up Bisnaga in Salmon Rushdie’s Victory City; or places you haven’t dreamed of and didn’t realize that you needed till AI told you to go there. Maybe you’re the only one who wants or needs to visit a particular world, but AI will populate it. You’ll never be alone.

So, for the first group project, we just asked a few different robots to put their heads together and come up with AI fantasy worlds that humans would really love. It’s not tough to see how they figured out where to send us first. Humans, after all, love sex, and we love coffee, so the clever robots just combined the two.

We present to you “The Velvet Espresso Lounge”, where, as our robot friends describe it, “coffee and desire entwine in a sensuous dance.” It doesn’t exist now, but if e/acc’s get our way, it probably will.
