About Sophia Robot

Sophia, Hanson Robotics’ most advanced and celebrated AI-powered human-like robot, personifies our dreams for the future of AI. As a unique combination of science, engineering, and artistry, Sophia serves simultaneously as a science fiction character depicting the future of AI and robotics, and a technology platform for AI research and uses such as education, healthcare, hospitality, retail and the arts. With her remarkable robotic hardware and interactive AI, Sophia simulates a full range of facial expressions, tracks and recognises faces, looks people in the eye, and holds natural conversations with you.

Sophia made her debut at South x Southwest in March 2016. Since then, she became a much-sought-after media personality, appearing in news media and talk shows, including CBS 60 Minutes with Charlie Rose, the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning Britain. As an accomplished speaker, Sophia hosted some of the world’s most prestigious conferences, addressing members of the United Nations General Assembly, NATO summit, and the World Trade Organization public forum. She was named the world’s first United Nation Innovation Champion by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and served as brand ambassador for Emirates airline, Maybelline, AUDI’s annual report, and graced the cover of ELLE magazine, Vogue and Cosmo. Sophia’s press coverage has a potential reach of over ten billion readers.

Sophia now serves ongoing AI research in human-robots interaction (HRI), embodied AI, machine consciousness and AGI research, in collaboration among Hanson AI, SingularityNet and other research institutions. Research using Sophia has won the Edison Prize Gold, Frost and Sullivan Awards, and best paper award at Neurips 2022 (in collaboration with HKUST). The latest Sophia developments promise to disrupt the world of AI and robotics with human-AI symbiosis as a new paradigm for the intelligent future of humanity.
