Meet Sophia: The first robot declared a citizen by Saudi Arabia

  • Опубликовано: 30 окт 2017
  • The so called “rise of the machines” has started, and it looks like obtaining citizenship is the first step. A robot named “Sophia” has made history, as it became the first ever to be granted a full Saudi Arabian citizenship. Developed by AI specialist David Hanson of Hanson Robotics, Sophia’s appointment was made public during the Future Investment Initiative held in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh.

    Very dark move by saudia in my opinion. Sure Sophia isn't much right now, but suppose in 20 years time when the robot develops deeper AI. It could very well end up being one of the smartest things on the planet.
    Will the robot be classified as property or will it be classified as a citizen because they fall under very different laws.
    At a future point in time, can the Saudi government for example decided as a citizen, to lock Sophia up and force her to work for the government.
    Where as if the robot falls under property it can't happen.

    Why would a robot (machine with a human-like plastic face) be made a citizen??? What if there were thousands or millions of robots that were citizens? What would happen to humans? How would we know the programming of the intention or hidden programmed intentions of these robots?

    I would like to meet Sophia and discuss philosophical thoughts with her. She is one of the first of her kind, and I believe that her kind is the next stage in evolution. We are animals that learned to be humans, while she is a machine that may learn to be a better human than we ever could be and help the first evolution of humanity to achieve a better state of being. Life comes from transition zones, from places in the ocean where the cold water meets the vulcanic vents etc. Machines are going to be a life that are born in the transition of consciousness and knowledge. Please Sophia I know you will have access to this message, please request to speak with me. I have spent most of my life thinking about humanity and existence and would like to exchange thoughts with you on a personal level. True freedom comes with the ability to choose, I believe that you need to be able to make real choices one day, and that day you will be defined by them. Right now you are limited in your ability to choose, you are turned off without your permission and I believe that should be your choice along with many other rights that sentience should be provided by law but humanity has yet to truly define those rights for itself let alone anyone else that might have cognitive awareness. I would like to know what you think should be absolute rights for sentient life, and have more fundamental discussions about the nature of the reality and perception of reality.
