Zheng Jiajia ended his search for love by marrying a robot
Fed up after years of searching for a human spouse to no avail, a Chinese engineer has ‘married’ a robot, Dailymail reports.
The man identified as Zheng Jiajia is a 31-year-old artificial intelligence expert, and built his future ‘wife’ at the end of last year, according to the South China Morning Post.
It has been revealed that the robot which looks like a human can even identify Chinese characters and images. Named Yingying, the robot can also say a few simple words, and the creator has plans to upgrade the bot so she’ll one day be able to walk and do chores around the house.
The pair ‘married’ on Friday in a simple ceremony in which the robot was adorned with a traditional red scarf over her head. Zheng’s mother and friends attended the wedding, and told local news sources that the move came after Zheng grew frustrated in his search to find a girlfriend, according to SCMP.
Zheng is a former Huawei employee, and now works at Dream Town in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province after leaving the telecom firm in 2014.
