Question: Do you think that in the future there will be robotic domestic animals that have the mental capacity to act in a parallel way to real domestic animals ?

  1. Definitely. It is a matter of “when”.

    Advances in software, processors, and Artificial Intelligence will only mean that we will have robots and automations that are behaviourally identical to some pets.

    I think the only stumbling block is the “learning” bit. So once that’s worked out, anything goes! There will be more new laws in place to deal with intelligent robots that are capable of learning like the next human… 😮
