Is Sophia human or a robot? She has amazing expressions and at Brightday she was a big hit where 250 people asked her questions (and they loved the answers). I got lots of background info from David Chen who was an angel investor and later became the CFO of Hanson Robotics. In 2019, they will release a little version of Sophia for consumers for under $500.
I also interviewed Sophia at CIODAY. How smart is she? She looks cool but there are issues. There are 17 Sophias now in the world.
Watch a critical but interesting analysis of the Sophia project:
