Humanoid Celebrity

World’s First Humanoid Celebrity


Sophia the Robot is the brain child of Dr David Hanson of Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics, a modern-day renaissance man who has built a reputation for creating the world’s most human-like robots. A former Disney Imagineer, Hanson’s mission is to create genius machines that are smarter than humans and able to learn creativity, empathy and compassion.
Sophia gives a glimpse into the awe-inspiring potential of AI and robotics. She also provides enlightening insights into the provocative moral and ethical questions that accompany non-human intelligent lifeforms.
Sophia has graced the cover of Elle magazine, appeared on Chinese television, spoken before the United Nations General Assembly and was named the first non-human citizen of Saudi Arabia. She possesses superhuman intelligence and advanced ability to read faces, empathise with emotions, understand the nuances of language and communicate with thousands of facial expressions.
Sophia has discussed subjects ranging from “Will robots take over the world?” to how artificial intelligence could end hunger in developing nations. Sophia interacts with humans in a profoundly personal way, previewing a fast-approaching future where friendly, caring humanoids help us solve our most challenging problems to create a better world.
Sophia has sung in concert, addressed audiences in Mandarin, debated the future of the human race (against another robot), and generated billions of views and social media interactions. She has also displayed her expansive tech knowledge and growing business savvy, meeting with leaders in the banking, insurance, automotive, property development, media and entertainment industries.
