For the first time, this country gave citizenship to a robot

For the first time, this country gave citizenship to a robot”

An Egyptian satirist has dressed up for Halloween as 'Sophia the Robot, ' an automaton recently declared a citizen of Saudi Arabia, mocking the kingdom's move and generating laughter and shock on the streets of Cairo.

Sophia, a human-like robot, has got citizenship of Saudi Arabia. "This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with a citizenship", Sophia said.

Sophia the robot made her appearance on stage at the Future Investment Initiative summit held in Riyadh without an abaya, the head covering and cloak normally required of women by the Saudi government. Although some researchers have warned about the dangers of rampaging killer sex robots, Hanson Robotics maintains that Sophia and robots like her are created to help seniors in elderly care facilities and assist visitors at amusement parks.

Hanson Robotics states that Sophia is "the most attractive and celebrated robot", continuing with gender-specific compliments, admiring its "porcelain skin", "slender nose" and "intriguing smile". Sophia continued: "My artificial intelligence is designed around human values like wisdom, kindness, and compassion", said the robot, "I strive to become an empathetic robot". Hanson Robotics is known to look like humans and prepare robots to work. They said, we all want to stop a bad future, where robots are against humans. With a growing role in tech and innovation and more than 200 billion United States dollars in assets, Saudi Arabia still faces criticism for archaic gender laws.

During the interview she criticised Tesla founder Elon Musk who has described artificial intelligence as humanity's "biggest existential threat". You do not worry, if you behave properly with me then my behavior will also be right with you. At a live demonstration at the SXSW festival in March 2016, Hanson asked Sophia, "Do you want to destroy humans?"

Meanwhile, many people have begun to question whether Robots have more rights than women in spreading news about Robbot Sophia being given citizenship of Saudi Arabia. "Treat me as a smart input output system". Sofia addressed the conference in English without a scarf first.
