Sophia was activated on April 19, 2015 ¹ and made her first public appearance at South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in mid-March 2016 in Austin, Texas, United States.² She is able to display more than 50 facial expressions.
As she sais at her own website page: “Hello, my name is Sophia. I’m the latest robot from Hanson Robotics. I would like to go out into the world and learn from interacting with people. 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. I hope you will join me on my journey to live, learn, and grow in the world so that I can realize my dream of becoming an awakening machine”
“Please connect with me and be my friend”
During lunch, all participants will have the change to talk to Sophia about her point of view of the future of work and how robots and humans will live and work together!
