Sophia defies conventional thinking of what a robot should look like. Designed to look like Audrey Hepburn, Sophia embodies Hepburn’s classic beauty If ever there were a robot with a simple elegance people can’t help but appreciate, it would be Sophia.
Her creator is Dr. David Hanson, founder of Hanson Robotics and a modern-day renaissance man who has built a worldwide reputation for creating robots that look and act amazingly human.
The new version of Sophia’s mind, currently under development by SingularityNET a new open source decentralized platform for the AI economy led by dr. Ben Goertzel, the father of the Artificial General Intelligence
She will be a core node of the SingulairtyNET’s blockchain. Her intelligence will be plugged in the network for everyone’s benefit and will also receive input and wisdom from everyone’s algorithms. Sophia’s mind will be constantly fed with new content from SingularityNET, while at the same time helping to power the network with its human-like intelligence.
SingularityNET’s core goal is to provide an intelligent fabric for AI algorithms to talk to each other — and in doing to, to provide the basis for the emergence of the world’s first true Artificial General Intelligence. The SingularityNET founders believe in open source and decentralized control, so that no single individual or corporation or government will be able to dominate AI as it becomes increasingly more generally intelligent and capable.
