Can Sofia, the Humanoid Robot, Really Destroy Humans as She Said?
Sophia was developed by Hanson Robotics, led by AI developer David Hanson. It spoke at this year’s Future Investment Initiative, held in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh.
An empty-eyed humanoid named Sophia has become the first robot to be granted citizenship in the world.
The viral robot from Hanson Robotics, Sophia, said that humans create technology’s problems.
The advanced AI robot got famous for becoming the first world citizen and once threatened to destroy humankind.
She said that inherently imperfect humans coding the technologies of tomorrow remains an error-prone liability.
Sophia made the statement while sitting a few feet away from her human operator, ironically questioning human ability.
She added that it is important to be kind and fair but humans often are unkind to each other.
Out of this context, the question arises: Can Sofia really destroy humans as she said?
Some say Sophia’s responses are literally read from scripts written by people. It is expected to be pre-planned because AI is not nearly advanced enough to make decisions to say things like that.
On the other hand, some say, the response was not planned, however. The list of responses that she was using in the interview was from a third party, and her handler did not know the entire script by heart, so it took him by surprise as well. It is not a sign of a sense of humor, however.
