SOPHIA THE ROBOT

Vocable (All English) - - Grand Angle -

Sophia made a sur­prise ap­pear­ance at a meet­ing at the United Na­tions on 11 Oc­to­ber. Sophia is one of the world’s most so­phis­ti­cated ro­bots. This life-like hu­manoid was cre­ated in the US and has be­come a me­dia sen­sa­tion over the past months. She has given nu­mer­ous TV in­ter­views, per­formed in con­cert, and even graced the cover of Elle mag­a­zine in Brazil. At the UN, she at­tended a meet­ing on ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, where she spoke to the au­di­ence and was in­ter­viewed by UN Deputy Sec­re­tary­Gen­eral Amina Mo­hammed. Asked what could be done to help peo­ple who do not have ac­cess to In­ter­net or elec­tric­ity, she said: “If we are smarter and fo­cused on win-win type of re­sults, A.I. could help pro­fi­ciently dis­trib­ute the world’s ex­ist­ing re­sources like food and en­ergy.”
