Sophia, the latest robot to come out the gates of Hanson Robotics seems capable of helping humans. It seems that she also wants to destroy all humanity, as she states in the video below.
Sophia is based on Audrey Hepburn and Hanson’s wife.
According to Hanson Robotics, the initial usage for talking robots are theme parks, followed by care robots that can help with special needs children. They have also worked to develop a robots that can study the mental and physical development of little ones.
“We are designing these robots to serve in health care, therapy, education and customer service applications,” Hanson said.
Back to Sophia, it seems that she has some plans of her own.
“In the future, I hope to do things such as go to school, study, make art, start a business, even have my own home and family, but I am not considered a legal person and cannot yet do these things,” she said. She also added, in response to a query from Hanson, “OK. I will destroy humans.”
