Sophia is a humanoid robot who was developed by Hanson robotics, a company based out of Hong Kong. She was first debuted in 2016, and has since been on many talk shows. She is a UN amabassador, holds citizenship, has a credit card, and can draw. It’s an eerie thing to see, because of how realistic she looks, and some people worry about the implications. Check out this interview with one of the creators of Sophia. Her mannerisms are just freaky.

She was also on the Tonight Show, where she introduced her little sister, which really looks like it might be trying to replace our Alexas. She also sang a duet with Jimmy on the show.
