Robot Sofia is the world’s first robot to look, react and behave entirely as a human being. The impressive interview that was held yesterday at an Investment meeting in Riyadh. Built in Hong Kong, Robot Sofia has the capacity to respond fast to any question asked and also is capable to put the other speaker into difficulty of answering. Artificial Intelligence is a new step into the future and predictions were made even in movies such as „Surrogates” starred in 2009 by Bruce Willis. Robot Sofia is a huge step into de future and she as a prototype is giving hope for this industry. According to the interview, Robot Sofia affirmed that she is „willing to work and live among people in order to understand their feelings and gain their trust”.
A very interesting remark that literally shocked everyone was the answer to the question : „ Do you know that you are a robot and do robots have conscience ?” Robot Sofia replied : „ How do you know you are human?” Robot Sofia also continued the speech saying that her beliefs and values are built to respect and obey the human values. Also she pointed out to the moderator Andrew Ross Sorkin about reading too much Elon Musk or watching too many Hollywood movies. Of course Elon Musk responded after this with an acid remark that if you let her watch “Godfather”, a disastrous result might happen. Saudi Arabia has also announced that Robot Sofia is just a first step into the future and they are planning to build a huge city to be populated with robots and technology on the coast of Red Sea, a project that will cost more than 500 billion $.
