The robot, Sophia, is a humanoid created by the Hong-Kong-based Hanson Robotics for the purpose of aiding seniors and visitors to parks. Saudi Arabia granted citizenship to a robot, becoming the first country to do so in the lead up of the Future Investment Initiative held in Riyadh, the country’s capital. Sophia has cameras and AI software that allows her to “make eye contact” and recognize people. She also has voice recognition capabilities and can become smarter by talking with people.
