Revolutionary milestone of Artificial Intelligence (Sophia: The Robot)

Artificial Intelligent is a field of study that proves that machines can artificially express the intelligence expressed by human. Artificial Intelligent was established in 1955 as an academic. Although in the early days it carried on with confidence. The series of failures described as AI Winter in the intervening period was greatly affected by factors such as financial loss. Then again with new impetus it has seen various successes to this day. One such success is the Advanced Artificial Intelligent Humanoid Robot called Sophia.

Sophia is a Social humanoid Robot. Turned on February 14, 2016 by David Hanson, founder of Hong Kong — based Hanson Robotics. It was created for the purpose of Technology Demonstrator. It appeared in public at the South by Southwest Festival (SXWF) in mid-March 2016 in Austin, Texas, United States. This robot, which did not work properly in the early days, has been constantly updated and is now a better robot. Surprised by its performance, the United Arab Emirates government purchased the Sophia Robot and granted Saudi Arabia citizenship.
