Saudi Arabia becomes first country to grant citizenship to a robot


#1

Saudi Arabia has officially recognised a humanoid robot as a citizen, marking the first time in history that an AI device has been awarded such status.

“I want to live and work with humans so I need to express the emotions to understand humans and build trust with people,” she said.

Sofia has one-upped thousands of slave workers currently in the Kingdom. Will Sophia have more rights than actual women in SA? We’ll see.

Oh, and by the way:

"In March of 2016, Sophia’s creator, David Hanson of Hanson Robotics, asked Sophia during a live demonstration at the SXSW festival, “Do you want to destroy humans?..Please say ‘no.’” With a blank expression, Sophia responded, “OK. I will destroy humans.” -BusinessInsider

Nice try, but Johnny 5 became the first robotic US Citizen back in 1988.

Anybody notice Sophia is white? Not brown, tan, or black. Like VERY white.
