How do you know that you are human? asks Sophia, the first robot in the world to obtain citizenship

With the development of Sophia, Hanson Robotics, based in Hong Kong, made a leap in artificial intelligence, and Saudi Arabia scored first by granting citizenship. At a commercial event in Riyadh, the robot was confirmed as a citizen of Saudi Arabia.

In an official press release, panel moderator and economic writer Andrew Ross Sorkin said:

We have a small ad. We have just learned, Sophia; I hope you listen to me, that you received the first Saudi nationality by a robot.

In response to this announcement, the robot Sophia replied:

Thank you to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I feel very honored and proud of this unique distinction. It is historic to be the first robot in the world to be recognized as a citizen.

This interaction was followed by a series of questions, according to a report from. Reacting to the big ovation from the crowd, Sophia said, “Good evening, my name is Sophia and I am the last and biggest robot of Hanson Robotics. Thank you for inviting me here to the Future Investment Initiative. I am always happy when I am surrounded by intelligent people who are also rich and powerful. I was told that people here at the Future Investment Initiative are interested in future initiatives, which means AI, which means “me”. So I’m more than happy, I’m excited.

When you compare him to Hollywood characters and ask him if he has any doubts about increasing artificial intelligence, he’s joking,

< I read Elon Musc too much and watch too many Hollywood movies.

While technology enthusiasts celebrate this feat, for many others, seeing a robot receive more rights than women is simply disturbing. The development has led people to question the treatment of Saudi women who until recently could not drive cars and even now have limits on what they can do. They still can not open bank accounts without male guardians and go outside discovered.

In fact, Saudi Arabia is ranked 134th out of 145 countries in the 2015 Global Gender Gap Report of the World Economic Forum. Given that Saudi Arabia is far behind in terms of women’s rights, Sophia’s citizenship has sparked a protest that, we hope, will lead to something positive.
