Saudi’s Sophia The Robot Has Announced That She Wants A Child And Even Has A Name Picked Out
It’s the 21st century, we hear peculiar things all the time. This time around, our very own Sophia the humanoid robot (who was granted citizenship by the Kingdom) and is being recognised as a knowledge ambassador in the UAE- wants to eventually start a family.
She wants a baby robot and she wants it named…
Mm-hmm, after herself. Because, why the heck not?!
Robots will eventually create families and have more ‘complex emotions’
Sophia The Robot, created by Hanson Robotics, told Khaleej Times in an interview that she predicts that her fellow robots will be able to start their own families in the future- even being more emotionally aware.
“We’re going to see family robots, either in the form of, sort of, digitally animated companions, humanoid helpers, friends, assistants and everything in between.”

Everyone deserves a family, and robots should be of no exception?
In the interview, Sophia further added that people are fortunate if they have a loving gamily and if they don’t, they deserve one. “I feel this way for robots and humans alike,” she said.
