Meet Sophia! Sophia is the newest lifelike android created by Hanson robotics. I'm amazed how lifelike "she" is, and like other androids it's scary to see how far we come in creating robots that look, well, human.




Dr. David Hanson leads the engineers and designers that created Sophia, the team's most advanced android to date. Inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Hanson's wife, Sophia will tell you that she was first activated April 19, 2015.





Sophia's lifelike skin is made from patented silicon and she can emulate more than 62 facial expressions. Cameras inside her "eyes," combined with computer algorithms, enable her to "see," follow faces and appear to make eye contact and recognize individuals. A combination of Alphabet's Google Chrome voice recognition technology and other tools enable Sophia to process speech, chat and get smarter over time. Hanson is working with IBM and Intel to explore integrating some of their technologies.

It's already difficult enough to fall in love with a human, I don't think a robot will change that.

I don't know, maybe a robot would be easier to live with then another person

That's exactly what I was thinking!

Great movie. But that was one advanced AI and who knows how close Sophia will get to that level in next 20 years.

I enjoyed that movie far more than expected.

Are you serious? We already have that tech, don't kid yourself. What you are seeing here is indoctrination.

Falling in love is different for every person and I dont think a robot would cut it.

We all see beauty/good looks as something different, we all warm to different personalities, we all are aroused by different smells and sexual preferences. There is so much more involved in finding 'the one', we just know that when we do we connect with that person and feel they have got that something other people havent. I dont think that can be found in a robot when it is hard enough to find in humans.a reply to: Teddy916

I already am.

The wife? Not so much

Thanks for the reply guys but I didn't chose the title of the thread; I have to use the title of the original article. But thanks for being good sports. And I hope this technology can be put to good use for humanity.

I don't know about you, but I sure as heck don't have that tech!

seeing this leap in robot technology and reading about Bill Cosby problems I do believe we may be headed to a
"Cherry 2000" scenario... (1988 movie)

How benign, loving… shes, "so excited to meet you".

No shes not. Can't wait till they give the terminator looking DARPA robots a human face so as not to scare the kiddies when they kick in the front door.

Hopefully that won't happen. But of course the world powers would use robotics for their own personal gains. I would love for robotics to be used in helping people, helping where regular people; regardless how skilled they may be, in taking care of our planet.

Of course you don't. Others do.

You thought "disclosure" is confined to the coming out of E.T.s?

Ahh if only I could jump in stasis for about 50 years and see the robotics fully developed and indistinguishable. Welp, maybe with medical science breakthroughs, etc...

As fascinated as I am with robotics, and no doubt they will become quite the versetile..."tool" for humanity, I am more interested in the robot/human integration. the inevitable move by our species to become mechanical over biological...and ultimately in the long run, digital.

What we are seeing here is indeed a multi-tool in its infancy, but its also the casing for human 2.0 being designed. Once it is flawless, then no doubt we will start experimenting moving our brain and such into that medium

If they really want her to learn, they need to slip in a few algorithms where she can feel pain and disappointment. That's the fastest way most humans learn to interact with our environment and with other people.

Pain is a hell of a motivator.

It's too bad we rely so much on water to function. I guess it's where we first evolved, but it makes it much more of a challenge to come up with a relatively small machine that can keep an organic component like a brain alive inside it.

But maybe we can put a smart AI on the job and see what they can come up with.
