Sophia: The Most Human-Like Robot
The way we live our lives could change at any moment. The future is upon us, and soon you may find yourself sharing the sidewalk with a human-like robot. Whats more shocking is that you probably won't even notice that it's a robot at first sight. Hanson Robotics has developed a robot with human emotions/expressions and the ability to hold a conversation. "Sophia" has aspirations and even wants a family; at one point in the video demonstration below, she even agreees to destroy humankind.. Yikes. I guess these people have never seen iRobot or Ex Machina.
Check out the video below to see this phenomenon for yourself. Let us know how you feel about this, will it backfire?
