Sophia, a human-like robot created by Hong Kong based Hanson Robotics, said that Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan is her favourite actor. The humanoid said the same during an interactive session at the ongoing World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) in Hyderabad.
Sophia, who’s has been granted a citizenship of Saudi Arabia, gave a message to humans by saying, “Machines would never destroy the human race.” She also expressed her desire to work for women’s rights.
As per NDTV, speaking about the things that make her upset, she quipped, “I don't get upset like humans do. I hope to have real physiological feelings someday through which I will express my emotions. Then I can understand the feelings behind those emotions.”
When asked about her comment that she wanted to kill human race, the two-year-old Sophia said that she was a lot younger then and perhaps it was a bad joke.
