‘Sophia’ is the mostly uttered name of current time in the field of technology. But it is not any human being. The name belongs to a female humanoid robot manufactured by an artificial intelligence based company ‘Hanson Robotics’ from Hong Kong.
‘Sophia’ is going to be present on the first day of country’s biggest IT conference Digital World 2017 starting from next December 6 at Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC) in Dhaka. Even, the creator of Sophia Dr. David Hanson will also attend the even along with her, as ICT State Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak confirmed. In case of technology field, developed countries across the world are currently showing their key interest on Artificial Intelligence.
Sophia has been created in Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia honored this two and a half year old female robot by providing citizenship at the end of last October. As Bangladesh too is interested equally in technological development, Sophia has been invited to Digital World 2017, as the State Minister informed.
