Yes, you read it right, A Chinese engineer has “married” a robot he created after failing to find a human spouse.
Zheng Jiajia, 31, an artificial intelligence expert who designs and creates robots in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, created the “female” robot at the end of last year and he named it as Yingying. This robot can identify Chinese characters and images and even say a few simple words.
Zheng is seen in video carrying the robot to their simple 'wedding ceremony'.
Zheng was rejected by a woman he had a crush on and was single since then.
He dated her for two months before getting married. However, the wedding has not been officially recognised by the Chinese authorities.
