Zheng Jiajia was tired of being pressured to get married, so he created a robot called Yuing last year.
A Chinese artificial intelligence engineer ends his search for love and marries his self-built robot.
Zhen Jiajia, 31, decided to commit suicide because he couldn’t find his wife, his friend said.
Zheng was also tired of being constantly separated from his family and pressured to marry, so he named his robot Yingying, which he created late last year.
After “dating” for two months, he donated black clothes to his robot wife to “marry” in a ceremony attended by her mother and friends over the weekend in the eastern city of Hangzhou. According to this tradition, the head was covered with a red cloth.
One of the worst gender violations in China is often caused by over-sexualized abortions. The country’s child policy, which has long controlled the one-child family policy, has led to male gender dominance.
