    Robot Sophia Speaker Biography

    Sophia the Robot is the brain child of Dr David Hanson of Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics, a modern-day renaissance man who has built a reputation for creating the world’s most human-like robots. A former Disney Imagineer, Hanson’s mission is to create genius machines that are smarter than humans and able to learn creativity, empathy and compassion.

    Robot Sophia is a popular speaker choice for many corporate events and conferences worldwide, as Sophia gives a glimpse into the awe-inspiring potential of AI and robotics. She also provides enlightening insights into the provocative moral and ethical questions that accompany non-human intelligent lifeforms.

    Sophia has graced the cover of Elle magazine, appeared on Chinese television, spoken before the United Nations General Assembly and was named the first non-human citizen of Saudi Arabia. She possesses superhuman intelligence and advanced ability to read faces, empathise with emotions, understand the nuances of language and communicate with thousands of facial expressions.

    As a speaker, Robot Sophia has discussed subjects ranging from “Will robots take over the world?” to how artificial intelligence could end hunger in developing nations. Sophia interacts with humans in a profoundly personal way, previewing a fast-approaching future where friendly, caring humanoids help us solve our most challenging problems to create a better world.

    Sophia the Robot has sung in concert, addressed audiences in Mandarin, debated the future of the human race (against another robot), and generated billions of views and social media interactions. She has also displayed her expansive tech knowledge and growing business savvy, meeting with leaders in the banking, insurance, automotive, property development, media and entertainment industries.

    Robot Sophia Keynote Topics

    In the current era of innovation, we are increasingly dependent on technology and we no longer see too far in the future the moment when autonomous robots will begin to be a serious competition for human jobs. This future is perfectly shaped by Robot Sophia, the most recognized and popular in the world and "daughter" of Dr. David Hanson, of Hanson Robotics, gifted with exceptional artificial intelligence that allows her to learn with every conversation she has. Robot Sophia can be booked for corporate events and conferences, where she interacts with the audience, answering complex questions by the moderator and gives her opinion on any topics of interest for your organization, including the question "Will robots take over the world?".

    Humanoid robots are not yet a reality but will soon be a normal part of our lives. The technology has not yet reached a sufficient level for its mass production and a competitive cost that is affordable. In this session, we can take a first-hand look at the future that we have just around the corner thanks to Robot Sophia, the best-known speaker of her kind who has been recognized as the first non-human citizen of Saudi Arabia and has been invited to speak in multiple countries and events worldwide. Robot Sophia will discover the possible collaborations that will arise between humanoids and humans and wow your audience about the future that awaits us.

    There are many films and books that portend a highly technological future in which artificial intelligence is fully implemented in people's daily lives. In some of them this intelligence ends up taking over the human race and tries to enslave us or even eliminate us from the planet. Did you ever wonder, what a robot with AI actually thinks about that? Book Robot Sophia for your next corporate event and ask her directly, in this fascinating fireside chat that is amazing audiences all over the world. Sophia, the most advanced robot in our planet, will answer all your questions about the future of AI, the collaboration between humans and robots, and what holds the future of humanity in the advent of the technological singularity.
