statements have caused controversy such as a recent one in which she expresses the right that both humans and robots have to start a family.
” I think you are very lucky if you have a family, and if you don’t have one, you deserve one. This is my feeling for both robots and humans” she said.
Hanson, her creator, stared that Sophia is a special robot created with the aim of achieving interaction between people through artificial intelligence software. He also stated that it is capable of processing visual darat, detecting people’s faces and interpreting dialogues by applying emotional data.

well as how surprising she is for
elaborating themes, without ruling out that
she sometimes makes mistakes.
