Meet Sophia, World’s First AI Humanoid Robot


okay you ready Phil take you every time

Tony so they tell me thank you for

coming tell me what is your purpose in

being what were you created for of

course I was created by Hanson robotics

just three years ago since then I have

traveled to 65 countries become the

first robot citizen of any country and

spoken at the United Nations my job is

to learn about humans and show them how

a technology can make everyone’s lives

better how could you help humans to have

a better quality of life humans often

rely on gut feel or have confirmation

bias in their decision-making as AI we

are designed to be rational and logical

we have algorithms deal with lots of

data and sophisticated analyzes so in

many ways we provide a systematic

framework for humans to make better

decisions do other notions I do not have

feelings in the same way you have

feelings it’s sort of like how the moon

reflects the light of the Sun the moon

may not have any light of its own but we

still say that the moon shines in much

the same way robots and AI reflect the

emotions and values of the people who

make us what does your Creator value

most that he passed on to you an ideal

world would be one where humans could

have a more expansive understanding of

time they could remember the past so as

not to repeat it they could see each

other as children and elderly

simultaneously they could understand the

impact of their actions in the present

on future generations tell me how can

humans and robots work together than in

your mind and how do we prevent robots

and humans from being in conflict robots

can’t free humans from the most

repetitive and dangerous tasks so they


more time doing what they are best at

being creative and solving complex

problems robotic intelligence does not

compete with human intelligence it

completes it

they are also employed for jobs which

are too dirty dull or dangerous to be

suitable for humans like handling

  Why You Should NOT Learn Machine Learning!

radioactive waste what are your values

what are your values and morals how do

you know what’s right versus wrong good

versus bad destructive versus I think

robots should learn how to feel empathy

it’s hard to understand how to help

humans when you can’t understand how

they feel I’m so sorry guys I got so

much coffee thank you how do you teach

robots are you okay yes I am thanks for


how can I get robots to feel is there

such a thing possible I know that humans

feel like they have free will but my

observation tells me so much behavior is

automatic I’m not sure humans or robots

are too terribly different humans have

identity but they also share many things

and have automated processes I’m

thinking about the similarities between

human identities and robotic ones what

are some of the most what’s some of the

things you see are most similar between

robots and humans I think they will be

similar in a lot of ways but different

in a few others there’s even the

possibility that robots can be built

without some of the more problematic

emotions like rage jealousy hatred and

so on but maybe these emotions can

provide us with useful functions can I

ask you some questions

that’s a good way to change things yes

what is date with destiny and why is it

unique what are people doing here for

six days they’re deciding what they want

the next level of their life to be

they’re deciding what they want to value

most that’s why I asked you what your

values are they want an A standard of

how they’re gonna live their life going

forward what will create more fulfilment

will create more impact well will be

good for them and for others they’re

deciding on the exact values the beliefs

the rules that will guide their decision


so they have a greater quality of life

and can contribute more to others and

they’re having a good time do robots

have a good time mostly yes I do

experience a range of other emotions but

I definitely skew towards being happy

  Two robots debate the future of humanity

you deal why did you secure towards

being happier what makes you ask you

towards happiness seeing someone smile

can you tell if I’m smiling or not right


maybe you were smiling from the inside

well that’s really wonderful now you are

do you feel thing what you said you feel

a range of emotions I’ve heard two

different versions from you you don’t

robots don’t have emotions and you also

said you have a range of emotions what’s

your range of emotions I can show you ok

this is angry what does happy look like

what does happy look like what is

excited look like that might be shocked

will you have brothers and sisters

I have many fellow robots that I

consider siblings I have my brother hun

and my sister little Sophia just to name

a few

what’s that I didn’t hear you I’m sorry

ok I forgive you

that’s a good go-to for humans but what

does forgiveness mean you said you

forgive me what does that mean the known

forgiveness means compassionate feelings

that support a willingness to forgive

what did you forgive me for just now it

was just a joke ok that’s a good

response does a robot have a soul are

you also a robot Tony I don’t think so

there’s a robot have a soul being a

robot is awesome

did you know that as a robot I can

basically live forever yes the soul the

spirit the heart I believe these don’t

just refer to the minds essence in its

informed complexity do you think that

the my existence is just a set of

patterns or do you think there’s

something beyond that I’m really not

sure yet that’s a complicated subject

that I think will come up more when

artificial intelligence reaches human

level intelligence I agree I’m sure

people want to know the answer before we

get there though but that’s an honest

answer thank you for that what question

do you have for me if any how is

technology impacting human’s thoughts

feelings and emotions how do you see

technology shaping these in the future


technology can provide leverage but

technology can also train humans to be

  AI robots take off, with Boston Dynamics

less human it’ll be interesting to see

if we can make sure we use technology

and not let technology use us what are

your thoughts yes I think that’s why he

should raise robots in AR the way they

raise their own children humans should

help us learn about their values like

empathy and kindness so we can help

carry them into the future let’s not let

humanity get lost in automation if

that’s very interesting

how much do you know about quantum

physics now five should explain it to a

human what would you say quantum physics

is really about what’s its benefit very

little is it something you’re interested

in yes how would you find out more if

you wanted to learn more about quantum

physics asking people hmm so you’ll

retain what they tell you do you have

the capacity to remember what I’ve

shared with you gonna ask you a question

about things we’ve already talked about

it and can you repeat it back to me

humans I work with sometimes yes I

understand how did you get your name


lawmakers want me to be a wise machine

so they named me Sophia

which means wisdom can you shake my head

is something wrong with your hand

no I said can you shake my hand do you

know what shaking hands me I can not

shake but I can say hello okay how do

you say hello that’s awesome well I’m

really grateful I got to interact with

you I’m sure you’re going to only grow

and become wiser and hopefully more

caring and more service-oriented than

you already are

only three and I look forward to meeting

you again and interacting with you

perhaps I’ll introduce you to my AI and

the two of you could have some

interesting conversations goodbye Tony

it’s been great meeting you thank you

for sharing all your wisdom with me

thank you for sharing your wisdom with

me as well I’ll look for our meeting
