Sophia,world’s first humanoid citizen upstages at World Congress of Information Technology and Nasscom India Leadership Forum in Hyderabad on Tuesday.Sophia had an interactive session titled `Say hello to Sophia, helping humanity create a better future’.From her favourite Bollywood star to why humans shouldn’t fear robots, Sophia answered every question in her own style.She also answered that question on top of every ones mind — whether the Artificial intelligence, robots, and machines put together finally take over the human race? and she responded, “Robots will be in a symbiotic relationship with humans, that’s my hope to see robots and humans co-exist.”When she was asked who her favourite bollywood star was,she said Shah Rukh Khan without any doubt and her favourite place is Hong Kong.
Undaunted by a query on her about flouting the rules and moving around without a hijab despite being a citizen of Saudi Arabia and whether there should be different rules for robots, she said to the audience :
“We don’t need different rules and don’t expect special privileges. I actually would like to use my citizenship status to speak out for the rights of women.”
Some of the other queries she answered: As a robot, you like to rest? “Yes, I do need rest.” How much you invested in Bitcoin? “ Not old enough to have a bank account and no idea on bitcoin.”
Dressed in a black kurta and a blue stole, gifted by Nasscom, Sophia also proved she is not a mere machine, but a `robot of substance’.She said she thinks humans are amazing and should be helping each other. Her message to the gathering was simply awesome :
“Love for everyone”
Sophia left the crowd giggling when she started making faces when the host was having a chat with her creator and Hanson Robotics founder David Hanson about her range of expressions .
