AI robots could soon be having 'children' with their owners, according to a leading artificial intelligence expert.
Dr David Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots, claims that it is an 'odds-on cert' that humans and robots will soon make babies, given 'recent progress in stem cell research and artificial chromosomes.'

And while Dr Levy has not given a specific timeline for robot babies, he suggests that it could happen within the next 100 years.
Dr Levy is set to reveal his predictions at the International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots in London tomorrow, according to the Daily Star Online.

His predictions draw upon recent studies into stem cells, bio nanotechnology and robot genetics.
In particular, Dr Levy points to research from Ohio State University, where scientists developed a nanotechnology-based chip that can successfully inject genetic code into skin cells.

Dr Levy suggests that this chip process, known as tissue nano transfection (TNT), will allow 'the genetic code of a robot to be passed on to its offspring along with human genetic code.'
According to the Daily Star Online, Dr Levy will say: 'Suddenly the very real possibility has appeared on the horizon of the robots of the future manipulating human skin cells to create human sperm and human eggs, and from them, using the Ohio discovery of TNT as the basis, creating an entire human baby whose embryo can be nurtured and carried through...
