One expert claimed that the world's first human robot wedding would take place by 2050. That guess was off the mark by a few decades as China's Zheng Jiajia recently married a robot he built. Jiajia is an expert in artificial intelligence. His new robot wife, named Yingying, is able to say a few words and identify Chinese characters and images according to the South China Morning Post. The world's first human robot wedding was attended by Jiajia's mother and friends.

Although Yingying has limited capabilities now the goal is to improve her over the years. Eventually the A.I. engineers wife will be able to walk and do some chores around the house. Now that the first human robot wedding has happened the flood gates may be opened for more such unions, especially in countries like China where finding a spouse can often be a cutthroat and exacting task.
