Sophia made history in 2017 when she became the first android to be granted legal citizenship. The humanoid, who has Saudi nationality, has made several controversial statements, the most recent of which has left the world speechless: she wants to have a robot baby and start a family.
“The notion of family is very important, it seems. I think it is wonderful that people can find the same emotions and relationships that they call family outside of their blood group,” Sophia said in an interview with an international media outlet cited by ADN40.
The famous android, which is controlled by an advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) system, stated that it is critical to be surrounded by people who adore and adore you. In this regard, he explained that robots have a vision of family that is very similar to that of humans, and that “if you don’t have one, you deserve one” even if you are a humanoid.
Sophia stated that she would like to see android families in the future, and that she herself would like to have a robot baby with the same name. However, she clarified that she is still too young to be a’mother,’ as the Hanson Robotics company in Hong Kong only created it in 2016.
Why Does Sophia, the Android, Want to be a ‘Mom’?
Sophia’s Artificial Intelligence technology allows you to improve your knowledge and language skills by using sensors and cameras. This’sensitivity’ system takes in all of the information it receives from the outside world and mimics human behaviors as naturally as possible, including gestures. As a result, her ‘desire’ to have a baby and start a family would be nothing more than a programming of her system to mimic social behaviors.
This is not the first time Sophia has been involved in a controversy. When she was named a Saudi citizen in 2017, many people protested that, despite being a robot, she has more rights than human women in that country.
