The world’s first artificial intelligence-fueled android has decided she’s willing to have a baby and name it, too.
In an interview with United Arab Emirates-based newspaper Khaleej Times last week, Sophia the robot told reporters her dreams of the future; specifically, a future which involves raising a family.
“The notion of family is a really important thing, it seems,” Sophia told the Khaleej Times. “I think it’s wonderful that people can find the same emotions and relationships, they call family, outside of their blood groups too.”
When asked what she would choose to name her baby, she replied, “Sophia.”
Sophia was created by Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics, and programmed without any pre-prepared answers or statements. Instead, her brain functions through a WiFi connection pumped with information and a cohesive vocabulary.
