Artificial Intelligent Robot Receives Citizenship in Saudi Arabia

Artificial Intelligent Robot Receives Citizenship in Saudi Arabia

A robot with an extremely concerning sense of humor has just become a citizen of Saudi Arabia, Arab News reports, making her (it?) the first robot citizen in the world.

Journalist Murtaza Hussain also criticized the fact that a robot was given citizenship "before kafala workers who have been living in the country their entire lives". The robot said it would want to use its artificial intelligence to "make the world a better place".

The conversation touched on Sophia's goal - "I will do my best to make the world a better place", she said - but things also became quite surreal during the exchange.

Pressed on movies like Blade Runner, and the dangers of AI, Sophia said: "You've been reading too much Elon Musk and watching too many Hollywood movies".

The robot, created by Hanson Robotics, hasn't always had such a "friendly" relationship with humans. "Thank you for having me here at the Future Investment Initiative".

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: Sometimes I hate my job
In an interview, Conte said "Yes, I miss Italy ". "All I said was that one day in the future I would like to go back to Italy". I think that this experience for my daughter is an incredible experience and a great gift that I am doing her.


'Treat me as a smart input output system'. In response, Sophia replied that no, humanity does not have anything to worry about in regards to A.I., and perhaps Sorkin has been listening to Musk a bit too closely.

As a recent example, he cites the U.S. Supreme Court decision that one specific corporation named "Citizens United" had certain First Amendment rights in effect extended those same rights to other non-profit and business corporations, as well as to labor unions. She would further address a comment made by Sorkin about uncanny valley, a concept that suggests a robot becomes creepy as it becomes more realistic.

When asked why it is so important that humanoids are expressive, Sophia said, "I want to live and work with humans so I need to express the emotions to understand humans and build trust with people". "I will destroy humans". "I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI and I think people should be really concerned about it", Musk once said.

Some Twitter users complained that "Sophia has no guardian, doesn't wear an abaya or cover up - how come?"
