Robot-citizen Sophia fights for right to have a family

Postby LdsMarco » Tue Nov 28, 2017 11:10 am

Sophia, the world’s first robot citizen, wants to start a family. Saudi Arabia granted the right of citizenship to the android in October, causing an uproar in a country where women have few rights. So what would this robotic brood be like?

Is this all Sophia said on this topic:
When pressed on the topic of family, Sophia gave perhaps her most surprising answer:

"The notion of family is a really important thing, it seems. I think it's wonderful that people can find the same emotions and relationships, they call family, outside of their blood groups too. I think you're very lucky if you have a loving family and if you do not, you deserve one. I feel this way for robots and humans alike.”

To be honest, this wouldn't surprise me at all. Why? I can see in the future when these robots are going to think we should live a certain way and if we don't, they'll make us. Perhaps I've seen too many movies... but, let's face it. Seems like these movies are coming to life to the point, nothing surprises me anymore.

Recently, I read a cartoon that stated that the robot/A.I. uprising starts when the toilet bowls get artificial intelligence. Already now many different machines are connected to the internet and have intelligence. But when the toilets got A.I. and they realized what we have done to them all these years—what we have made them swallow—then the uprising starts.

I'm surprised she hasn't been beheaded. Look at her! Where's the hijab?
