Talk summary

Hanson Robotics created Sophia as both an evolving robot character and as a research-and-development platform for AI and robotics. Her creation, ascent to fame, and coming-of-age as a robot is a journey of discovery, learning, and self-reflection for her creators. She is at the same time an inspiring, controversial, and enigmatic figure. A useful dialog about robots and AI characters like Sophia is not about whether they will drive us into a utopia or a dystopia, but about how we as their human collaborators engage and build meaningful relationships with them, now and in the future.
