1020991-741033153LONDON: A humanoid robot took the stage at the Future Investment Initiative yesterday and had an amusing exchange with the host to the delight of hundreds of delegates.

Smartphones were held aloft as Sophia, a robot designed by Hong Kong company Hanson Robotics, gave a presentation that demonstrated her capacity for human expression.

Sophia made global headlines when she was granted Saudi citizenship, making the kingdom the first country in the world to offer its citizenship to a robot.

“I want to live and work with humans so I need to express the emotions to understand humans and build trust with people,” she said in an exchange with moderator Andrew Ross Sorkin.

    I can imagine someone trying to have their robots coming into the Polling places on Election Day and trying to vote!

  • Luis D Rey says:

    What emotions is she talking about?
    She is just a “bulky/hulky” program with a skeleton depicting a woman, for God’s sake !!
