Emerging technologies such as industrial robots, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are developing rapidly. Although these advances can increase the speed, quality, and affordability of goods and services, they can also lead to the displacement of large numbers of people. Sophia was developed by Hanson Robotics, a company headquartered in Hong Kong, and designed by Dr. David Hanson, who received a PhD from the University of Texas in 2007.
It is a highly advanced humanoid robot that is the result of advancements in artificial intelligence. Because of her realistic facial expressions, many emotions can be expressed on Sofia’ s face. A substance called ” frubber” is used to create your skin. It is very eye- catching because it allows you to blink and move your mouth naturally, as well as turn your head.
Actress Audrey Hepburn is the inspiration for the appearance of this character. Sophia can communicate in English, she is very interesting and can conduct discussions at a reasonable level. For several years, Sophia, who has entered the thirteenth session, has been a hot topic on television and concerts, she even appeared at the United Nations Summit on Artificial Intelligence and Sustainable Development. Sophia is currently in the thirteenth incarnation. Today, Saudi Arabia has granted him citizenship, making the country the first country in the world to grant this status to a robot.
It is also the first robot in the world to obtain any government citizenship. Hanson believes that with a more user- friendly appearance, Sophia will be able to find uses in medical and other fields, and be able to work with people in a manufacturing environment.
However, in recent years, tech masters like Elon Musk have raised concerns about Sophia, describing artificial intelligence as the greatest threat to the entire civilization, and calling for government intervention to ensure careful supervision of technology development.
