The first day of the Cre­ative In­dus­try Sum­mit,Tues­day, saw a unique ses­sion un­der the ti­tle Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence, dur­ing which the ro­bot Sophia, the lat­est in­ven­tion of the ro­bot­ics rev­o­lu­tion, par­tic­i­pated.

Sophia ex­hibits the lat­est de­vel­op­ment in ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence through the ma­chine’s abil­ity to in­ter­act with peo­ple and re­spond to any question with pre­ci­sion, prompt­ness, and hu­man re­ac­tions, which it did dur­ing the fo­rum through in­ter­ac­tions with the au­di­ence.

Dur­ing the ses­sion, which in­cluded a di­a­logue be­tween the ro­bot Sophia and TV pre­sen­ter Osama Ka­mal, the ro­bot af­firmed its hap­pi­ness to visit Egypt and par­tic­i­pate in the sum­mit.

The ses­sion wit­nessed great in­ter­ac­tion, as the ro­bot Sophia talked about the Egyp­tian player Mo­hamed Salah, which it de­scribed as a great achieve­ment, and wished luck for the Egyp­tian team dur­ing the World Cup.

As for the fu­ture of the cre­ative in­dus­try, Sophia said the cre­ative in­dus­try needs to fo­cus on con­tent so that cre­ative ideas can be brought to promi­nence.

She noted that ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence rep­re­sents a rev­o­lu­tion that adds much to the cre­ative field.

As Ka­mal ques­tioned whether ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence would re­place the lead­ers of the cre­ative in­dus­try in the fu­ture, Sophia stressed that the two sides are com­ple­men­tary to each other.

In re­sponse to a question about whether ro­bots could re­place broad­cast­ers and me­dia pro­fes­sion­als, Sophia stressed that ro­bot could not re­place man, but was made to bring about a bet­ter life for hu­man­ity.

At the con­clu­sion of Sophia’s con­ver­sa­tion with Ka­mal, the ro­bot ex­pressed its hap­pi­ness to par­tic­i­pate in the sum­mit, echo­ing the fa­mous na­tion­al­ist line “long live Egypt.”

The field of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence is one of the most im­por­tant top­ics be­ing ad­dressed by the sum­mit in its eighth edi­tion, which is cur­rently a ma­jor con­cern as one of the grow­ing in­vest­ment ar­eas at the global level.
