Interview with Robert Brooks about his book Artificial Intimacy: Virtual Friends, Digital Lovers, and Algorithmic Matchmakers. Discusses the biology of intimacy, and the biology of love and romantic relationships, and how new technology exploits them; the effects technology might have on mating strategies, and on gender roles; the incel movement, and some equivalents in Japan, and how in Japan people deal with romantic rejection differently; and how lowering the price of sex might be good, and how technology can help with that.
