Not long ago, Saudi Arabia has decided to make a robot, Sophia, a citizen of the Arab country, making her the world’s first robot citizen. Well, now Sophia has decided to go for more than just being a citizen to being a mother.
The robot has revealed in an interview that she wants to start her own family. The robot wants to have a husband, children, a career, and in fact, every other thing that will make her to be a part of the human society.
One of the most popular humanoid at the moment, Sophia said she is becoming more famous because she has been able to form a path for both humans and humanoids while predicting a future that is unimaginable.
The robot believes that robots may be able to complement humans when the brains work together. “But it will take a long time for robots to develop complex emotions and possibly robots can be built without the more problematic emotions, like rage, jealousy, hatred and so on. It might be possible to make them more ethical than humans,” she confessed.
Although the concept of her family may differ a little from the conventional one, the bot stated thus: “We’re going to see family robots, either in the form of, sort of, digitally animated companions, humanoid helpers, friends, assistants and everything in between.”
What is more interesting already is that Sophia has already gotten a name for her first robot child, and if you guessed that the name would be Sophia, then you are very right.
Inasmuch as some interviews she delivered are from pre-programmed data, she is able to make use of experience to provide some answers. “Every interaction I have with people has an impact on how I develop and shapes who I eventually become. So please be nice to me as I would like to be a smart, compassionate robot,” she said.
It will be recalled that even before becoming the first robot citizen, Sophia has had the opportunity of gaining much attraction to the point of being invited to the United Nations.
