SAUDI Arabians are up in arms because a humanoid robot who doesn’t “cover up” or abide by the country’s strict laws was granted citizenship at a tech conference in Riyadh this week.
Sophia, created by Hanson Robotics in Hong Kong, was given official status on Wednesday at the Future Investment Initiative conference.
“I am very honoured and proud for this unique distinction,” she told the crowd, according to theBBC. “This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognised with a citizenship.”
Sergi said: “Using the brain I have already created, I would program it with a genome so he or she could have moral values, plus concepts of beauty, justice and the values that humans have. Then to create a child with this robot it would be extremely simple.”
“I would make an algorithm of what I personally believe about these concepts, and then shuffle it with what she thinks and then 3D print it. That’s it. I 3D print the robot that is the child of me and the robot ... I don’t see any complications.”

It isn't a "she", it's an it.
