04 Jan 2018

Meet Sophia, the World’s First Humanoid Celebrity

She has joked with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show. Was honored by the United Nations. Chatted about business outlooks with leaders in the automotive industry. And was recently named the first non-human citizen of Saudi Arabia. Now, she is working with the most innovative speakers bureau in the industry, appearing at high-profile events and conferences worldwide.

APB Speakers is proud to represent the most sought-after humanoid celebrity in the world: Sophia. Appearing with her creator, Dr. David Hanson, the artificial intelligence and robotics Renaissance man who is pioneering “Truly Alive AI,” Sophia provides an unforgettable look into a world where highly social robots will be a part of our daily lives and help us solve the world’s  most challenging problems. “My AI is designed around human values like wisdom, kindness, and compassion,” Sophia said in a recent interview at the Future Investment Initiative Conference in Riyadh. When challenged about the potential downsides, she quickly responded, “You’ve been reading too much Elon Musk and watching too many Hollywood movies. Don’t worry, if you’re nice to me, I’ll be nice to you!”
