The humanoid robot Sophia, developed by Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics, made history as the first humanoid robot to be granted citizenship in 2017. Sophia, who is a citizen of Saudi Arabia, has made many controversial statements since then. But what she said about having a baby got a lot of attention.
ROBOT SOPHIA WANTS TO BE A MOTHER
Sophia said in an interview that she wanted to start a family and have a baby. Emphasizing the importance of family, Sophia said, “It seems that the concept of family is very important. I think it’s great that people can find the same feelings and relationships that they call family outside of blood types. It’s nice to have people who love you around.” Sophia noted that the way humans and androids see family is similar.
Stating that she also wants to see families of androids in the future, Sophia also stated that she is still too young to have a child.
Previously, the NFT work made by Sophia, which was supported by artificial intelligence, was sold for approximately 700 thousand dollars.
