  • Sophia (robot)

    Artificial Intelligence is becoming a part of our lives. One day all countries may have robot citizens.

    Meet Sophia, the world's first robot citizen.

    Sophia is a social humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics.
    Sophia was activated on April 19, 2015 and made her first public appearance at South by
    Southwest Festival (SXSW) in mid-March 2016 in Austin, Texas, United States. She is able to
    display more than 62 facial expressions.

    Sophia has been covered by media around the globe and has participated in many high-profile
    interviews. While interviewers around the world have been impressed by the sophistication of many
    of Sophia's responses to their questions, the bulk of Sophia's meaningful statements are believed
    by experts to be somewhat scripted.

    In October 2017, the robot became a Saudi Arabian citizen, the first robot to receive citizenship of any
    country. In November 2017, Sophia was named the United Nations Development Programme's first ever
    Innovation Champion, and the first non-human to be given any United Nations title.

    For more info, check wikipedia or google Sophia the first human citizen.

    There may come a time when all countries have robot citizens but is this a good thing or a bad thing?
