Sophia is a famous robot who was developed by Dr Richard Hanson in his laboratories, Hanson Robotics. But he created Sophia in collaboration with Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc who made her voice system. Could Sophia have been so personable without a voice? Hanson also collaborated with Singularity Net who manage her brain. Without 'thought' would Sophia impress us so much?

Sophia was made a citizen of Saudi Arabia in 2017, and millions watched her walk on utube. More amazing was her performance on Good Morning Britain where she put the odious Piers Morgan in his place and answered all questions in a charming and relevant manner.

Sophia is a humanoid style robot that was developed by Hanson Robotics, a Hong Kong based company. It was orginally developed for use in nursing homes but since 2016 the company has been hoping that humanoids such as Sophia could become something a part of everyday life. Sophia was unveiled at the South by Southwest Festival in Texas in 2016. 2016 was a big year for Sophia as the robot would become an official citizen of Saudi Arabia and then late in the year be named the Innovation Champion for the United Nations; the first non human to be named a U.N. official.

Google's parent company in Alphabet, Inc. is responsible for the AI technology that makes Sophia and other Hanson Robotics humanoids function. Sophia has made numerous appearances on national television news and talk shows as well. As expected, Sophia made a huge splash and had a huge turnout at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show.
