Sophie, a famous intelligent robot, has set a new world record. It is now a full citizen of Saudi Arabia, the first robot to do so.
Sophia, created by Hanson Robotics, was designed to “learn and adapt to human behavior”. It has been interviewed around the world and can engage in “simple conversations on predefined topics”. It is also capable of over 50 facial expressions.
The ultimate aim envisioned by it’s creators is for Sophia to imitate human capacities such as “love, empathy, anger, jealousy, and the sense of being alive”.
