Sex robots could be hijacked by hackers and used to cause harm or even kill people, a cybersecurity expert has warned.

Artificial intelligence researchers have consistently warned of the security risks posed by internet-connected robots, with hundreds recently calling on governments to ban weaponized robots.

The latest warning comes from a cybersecurity expert who made the prophecy to several U.K. newspapers.

“Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like in some cases knives or welding devices,” Nicholas Patterson, a cybersecurity lecturer at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia, told the Star.

“Often these robots can be upwards of 200 pounds and very strong. Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot. The last thing you want is for a hacker to have control over one of these robots. Once hacked they could absolutely be used to perform physical actions for an advantageous scenario or to cause damage.”

[Yes, the story is "clickbait-y", but the underlying point still remains that remote access to IoT (Internet of Things) devices could wreak havoc. Do any Soylentils have IoT devices and what, if anything, have you done to provide protection from undesired monitoring or tampering? --Ed.]

    Now for some real talk.

    Voice assistants like Alexa/Echo/etc. are currently crappy and gimmicky. If they had strong AI (somewhere between today's garbage and sentience/"sapience"), they could be a lot better. But you don't want it to be controlled by the cloud/CIA or connected to the net.

    If we perfect a low-power neuromorphic architecture and scale it up in the third dimension, maybe we can have strong AI at the consumer level. NAND/post-NAND could scale to petabytes or more in various form factors. Enough storage to hold an offline copy of Wikipedia, Library of Congress, every book ever written, and plenty of audio and video content (every sex act and kink on file, and then some).

    So a sex robot that could hold a real conversation (smashing the flawed Turing test and probably being more intelligent than you anyway) and do chores could be feasible. If it resents you or can harm you even without being hacked, that's on you. Maybe construct it using more soft/squishy robotics than cold steel.

      Depends on form factor. A sea cucumber like device that has basic actuators that can allow it to get to its charging station (amongst other actions), will likely be unable to do much harm(choking maybe?).
      If a robot can do more then just lie there, ie move to different self supported positions and it can pick up anything, it can do harm. If a robot can do non trivial non single purpose chores, it can do more harm.

      Just saying switching materials is not going to change much. I mean really, if a robot can lift itself, it can probably suffocate a person with marshmallow hell.

      It is the standard: the greater the tool, the more effective of a weapon it can be.

    if anything, have you done to provide protection from undesired monitoring or tampering? --Ed.]

    The only way to protect against undesired monitoring/tampering is to not have the IoT devices in the first place. Undesired monitoring/tampering is baked in to the design of most IoT devices. Granted, this undesired monitoring/tampering normally occurs by the IoT device vendor. Hackers are a secondary concern.

    I won't bore you with the details, but I have already had an appliance (I only wish it were a sex robot :P) try to kill me because I insisted on not using its fancy overpriced and invasive IoT controller. The appliance's firmware officially supports use without, but only as a grudging capitulation to say they do. It is baked in to the hardware design/microcontroller to give you the finger and cause serious problems if you don't spend that extra $$$ and let them watch you. Expect to see more of this kind of shit in the future.

      Your probably thinking of the first episode of the "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex" [wikipedia.org] series. It had robot Geisha that had been hacked to attack and restrain a bunch of politicians, if the ransom wasn't paid the bots were going to start breaking necks. Good series too, I would recommend checking it out to anyone who hasn't seen it.

      There were also the gynoids in the GITS sequel movie "Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence" [wikipedia.org] who were killing people but it wasn't due to being hacked. As the real cause is key to the plot line I shall refrain from any more spoilers.

      There is, for a love at distance.
      Sexbots would be just interfaces, receivers, data communication sets, not complete simulators of a sex partner, but a gateway to one. Together with VR equipment, they can even be a nondescript dolls made only for tactile sense stimulation. That would have interesting implications and consequences, in love at distance, sexual partner selection, massive online cheating, online prostitution, and prophylaxes. It is possible that real "in carne" sex would all but completely disappear because augmented reality one can be ... well, augmented as desired, anonymized, with very few physical consequences for participants (pregnancy, STDs, attachments), and therefore more easily available.

        How do you know what strong A.I. is? Perhaps even now your vibrator is sentient and you just don't know? Or maybe it just hasn't had anything to complain about. >:)

          Strong A.I. would be anything capable of making decisions not programmed into its code and that don't emerge from one or two degrees of freedom, let's say, from that code. Think "X vs classic Rockman" here.

        I foresee a movement for bots' rights but it will probably be employed as a way for the bot's masters to have more power on fellow meatbags.
        I see sentience as being achievable through selecting virtual life forms. Maybe it will be just an indirect creation of the hypothetical god, sentience being equal to ours in every aspect. Maybe we will breed a sociopath. Maybe it will just be an eliza deluxe.

    self driving cars, which are actually pushed to mainstream audience and actually always connected, will be all safey safey yes?

      This was my first thought too - why would anyone write about the dangers that might exist for a sex robot in the future when the modern automobile is currently a serious threat as a remotely controllable robot. This is not limited to self driving cars though. For quite a while now the modern automobile is a robot with hand controls that look identical to the standard mechanical control system from the previous generation. To put it another way: you use the steering wheel to tell the robot car what you want it to do instead of pointing the wheels with a mechanical linkage. Repeat for throttle, parking brake, and even some times brake pedal. There is at least one automobile on the road where there is not a mechanical linkage between the steering wheel and the steering rack at all and that's not a self driving car, it's a Lexus.

      It's also been more than 10 years since this was originally researched and published by a university in California and one in Washington. The media has been able to successfully hire people to demonstrate to the evening news that they can take over a car the reporters are driving over the Internet. I've even had people driving me around in a Lyft bring up the remotely hackable car but not nearly enough.

      It's quite obvious we have a problem and it's quite obvious it has been brought to the attention of the public yet hardly anyone cares. I'm sure people here will argue with me about how big a deal this isn't as well. But this is a big deal - we can't have remotely hackable 1.5 ton machines with 200 hp on the road, that's insane.

      There is a parallel here with spying on the internet. Tell people the government knows who they are talking to and they don't care because that's only used against bad guys and they aren't one of those. But tell them the government has a collection of your dick pictures because they slurp up all the texts including the sexting you've been doing and all the sudden people really give a fuck.

      If you want people to care about something you have to punch them in the dick [youtube.com] apparently. Maybe the sex robot thing will do that.

    I prefer the living, breathing kind of sex toy [wikipedia.org].

    Going down this road, as long as there is consent, there is no issue of abuse and no risk of your toy being used to harm you, as they will do all they can to serve, protect and please you.

    Just sayin'

    If a hacker could do this, imagine what no-name, Chinese knockoff sex robots will do by accident
