I was hoping for another viral video with Sophia, the very popular humanoid that broke the internet this past year.
She’s had quite a life for a robot – she was given citizenship from Saudi Arabia, has become a global spokesperson for peaceful human-robot civilization and is like… a total celebrity!!! Jimmy Fallon, Will Smith, presidents of various countries – she hangs out with everyone famous!
When I interviewed her last year for Khaleej Times, she told me about how she wanted to start a family, have a baby and name her child after herself. Obviously, the video went viral and was picked up by all the media around the world. James FREAKING Corden was also talking about it on his show!
Now, when I met her again two weeks ago at GITEX in Dubai… it was more than awkward… Watch the video!
