Hanson Robotics developed a humanoid robot – Sophia. Sophia was designed to embody Audrey Hepburn’s looks: porcelain skin, a slim nose, high cheekbones, an attractive smile, and expressive eyes that change color with the light. Not only does Sophia have a sense of humor, but she can also express her feelings. She can make eye contact, recognize faces, and understand human speech. Although Sofia operates on a script, she is smart and fun to talk to.
