Sophia the robot - Sophia, the first android with citizenship, now wants a robot baby

Sophia's Artificial Intelligence is so sensitive that it has awakened the desire to start a family and be the 'mother' of a robot baby named after her.

In 2017, Sophia made history by becoming the first android to be granted legal citizenship . The humanoid , with nationality of Saudi Arabia, has made several controversial statements, but the most recent has left the world speechless: she wants to have a robot baby and start a family .

The famous android , operated by an advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) system, commented that it is very important to be surrounded by people who love and love you. In that sense, he explained that robots have a vision very similar to that of humans regarding the family and "if you don't have one, you deserve one" , even if you are a humanoid.

Sophia commented that, in the future, she would like to see families made up of androids , and that she herself wants to have a robot baby with the same name. However, she clarified that she is still too young to be a 'mother', as we remember that it was created only in 2016 by the Hanson Robotics company, in Hong Kong.

Why does the android Sophia want to be 'mom'?

Sophia's Artificial Intelligence technology gives you the ability to increase your knowledge and language through sensors and cameras. This 'sensitivity' system captures all the information it receives from the outside and replicates human behaviors in the most natural way possible, even gestures. Therefore, her 'desire' to have a baby and start a family would only be a programming of her system to imitate social behaviors.
