In an lively interview with Al Arabiya in Dubai, robot Sophia which received its citizenship from the Kingdom, speaks about what it means to be a citizen and also about possessing emotion.
Sophia, the world’s first cyborg citizen, also denies that robots are out to displace human beings.
The robot, developed by AI specialist David Hanson of Hanson Robotics, was in town to attend the two-day Dubai Knowledge Summit which concluded on Wednesday.
The Mohammed Bin Rashid Foundation on the second day of the Dubai Knowledge Summit sprang a surprise when they named the Ambassadors for Knowledge for 2017.
Sophia was among the five who received the honor from none other than the UN Assistant Secretary General Michael O’Neill.
