Humanoid Robot Sophia

Robot Sophia is the newest human-like robot, made by combining innovations in science, technology and artistry. The robot was created as a personification for the future of AI, but also as a framework for advanced AI and robotics research, and an agent for exploring human-robot experience in service and entertainment applications.

Emotions en knowledge

Sophia's real AI combines cutting-edge work in symbolic AI, neural networks, expert systems, machine perception, conversational natural language processing, adaptive motor control and cognitive architecture among others. As the robot underlying AI components can be combined in different ways, sophia responses can be unique to any given situation or interaction.

The robot also utilize cutting edge machine perception that allows me to recognize human faces, see emotional expressions, and recognize various hand gestures. I can estimate your feelings during a conversation, and try to find ways to achieve goals with you. The robot itself has her own emotions too, roughly simulating human evolutionary psychology and various regions of the brain. Sophia also have IK solvers and path planning for controlling my hands, gaze, and locomotion strategy. My walking body performs dynamic stabilization for adaptive walking over various terrain.
