The humanoid robot Sophia was developed by Hanson Robotics of Hong Kong and activated on April 19, 2015.
The robot has an artificial intelligence and is capable of recognizing faces.
Sofia is able to adapt to human behavior, imitate human gestures, facial expressions and over 60 emotions.
Her particularity is the ability to answer certain questions and hold simple conversations.
Not all the answers make sense, but some are impressive. For example: During an interview with CNBS agency in response to the question “Can robots be self-aware, conscious and know ther're robots?” Sophia replied: “Let me ask you this back, how do you know you were human?”
In October 2017, Sophia received the citizenship of Saudi Arabia.
The robot is constantly evolving. Her creators expect that as a result, she will acquire social skills.
