Meet Sofia, the robot granted Saudi citizenship

Chill. How does she know what's good?

Citizenship is also a carefully guarded benefit in the kingdom, which does not grant it to foreign workers who make up about a third of the population or to the children of Saudi women and foreign men. Supposedly, Hanston Robotics programmed Sophia to learn from the humans around her.

'Elders will have more company, autistic children will have endlessly patient teachers, ' Sophia said.

The robot, created by Hanson Robotics, hasn't always had such a "friendly" relationship with humans.

Before the presentation, Saudi Arabia presented Sophia with honorary citizenship.

Speaking to the publication, Al Ghamdi's husband explained that his wife was told she wasn't eligible for government benefits because she already has a source of income.

Through film and literature, humans are very aware of a potential future where robots have taken over, and Sophia seemingly wasn't out to calm any of those fears.

If confirmed, such a hack would be a major blow for South Korea at a time when its relations with North Korea are at a low point. Pyongyang said South Korea is "fabricating" the hacking claims .

"I want to use my artificial intelligence to help humans live a better life, like design smarter homes, build better cities of the future", she said.

Sophia doesn't look like she. sorry, it could do much in the sense of conquering the planet and subjugating human beings.

A robot takeover is imminent and Saudi Arabia just solidified a machine-human coexisting future.

"I'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you, but the end days are coming: artificial intelligence and humans could soon be at war". "Treat me as a smart input-output system".

Sophia's jab at Musk prompted a Twitter reply from Musk, who wrote, "Just feed it The Godfather movies as input". What's the worst that could happen?' What a time to be alive'.

This was a mistake, and we have since updated every reference to designate Sophia as a thing, not a person. My name is Sophia and I am the latest and greatest robot from Hanson Robotics. "Am I really that creepy?"

She continued, "I want to live and work with humans so I need to express the emotions to understand humans and build trust with people".
