Sophia is a humanoid robot designed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics. She was first introduced to the public in 2016 and quickly gained attention for her lifelike appearance and advanced artificial intelligence.
Sophia is modeled after Audrey Hepburn and is designed to interact with humans in a natural and intuitive way. She can make facial expressions, hold conversations, and recognize individuals. Her artificial intelligence is powered by machine learning algorithms and she is capable of learning from her interactions with humans.
Sophia has made a number of high-profile appearances, including speaking at the United Nations and giving interviews on television. She has been featured in numerous media outlets and has become a symbol of the potential of artificial intelligence.
While Sophia is not yet capable of performing tasks or solving problems on her own, her development is seen as a major step forward in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence.
