Robot Buddhist monk can tell you what love is
Can spiritual intelligence be artificial? Can a robot be the guide to your soul? Some monks in China think so. That's why they created a robot monk.
This machine, voiced undoubtedly by Tom Hanks, would be like a universal, always-on spiritual guide who'd instantly be our guiding light and forgive us all our sins.Thankfully, China has taken the first steps toward such enlightenment.As The New York Times reports, the monks of the Longquan temple just outside Beijing have employed a little Buddhabot to dispense wisdom to all those who seek it.His name is Xian'er, which apparently translates to Worthy Robot Stupid Monk. In Chinese, "stupid" is a nice word, conveying a certain brotherly love, as in "yo, stupid."
