Saudi Arabia Grants Citizenship to a Human-Like Robot: Meet Sophia

Sophia has porcelain skin, defined cheekbones and quite a flashy smile. She’s also a robot.

 

Ahead of Wednesday’s Future Investment Initiative event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, officials granted this humanoid robot citizenship, making Sophia the first robot to receive citizenship anywhere in the world. The bot, made byHanson Robotics, is modeled to look like Audrey Hepburn (does Sophia do Audrey justice?).
