e field of robotics is fast-growing. Robots can now perform complicated movements with elegance -- back-flipping, practicing parkour moves, even "carving" classical sculptures.

Then there's Sophia, a robot whose widespread appeal lies not in big, dramatic actions (her torso is often fixed to a rolling base), but rather an unsettling human-like appearance, compounded with the complex ability to express emotions.

AI-produced artwork sells for $433K, smashing expectations

"We're not fully there yet, but Sophia can represent a number of emotional states, and she can also see emotional expressions on a human face as well," explains David Hanson, the founder of Hanson Robotics.

The firm has developed a number of Sophias at their small research and design laboratory in Hong Kong, where parts and pieces of Sophia 20, 21 and 22 remain strewn across the facility.

 

@legend What do you think of Sophia?

I'm not a big fan of Sophia. It mostly seems like smoke and mirrors, rather than important AI work.

 

We've also seen better animatronics from Disney.

 

 

The smoke and mirrors for Sophia aren't particularly great smoke and mirrors. I swear she only gets the attention she does because she's creepy as hell looking and I'm sure they keep her bald and skinless to keep up appearances.
