(IBTimes)  Sophia, the humanoid robot that received Saudi citizenship last month, has now expressed hopes of starting a family and having a career for itself sometime in future. “The future is, when I get all of my cool superpowers, we’re going to see artificial intelligence personalities become entities in their own rights,” Sophia said while stressing this is one of its favourite topics.
In an interview with the Khaleej Times, Sophia answered a number of questions revolving around the future of robots, humans, and the relationship between the two. The bot, which has been designed to look like Audrey Hepburn, said it believes robots also deserve to start a family just like humans. Sophia is not programmed with answers like these, but uses machine learning to read a person’s expression and reply accordingly, per BBC.
