Hanson Robotics Limited
Sophia is Hanson Robotics’ most advanced and celebrated robot endowed with remarkable expressiveness, aesthetics and interactivity. She can simulate a full range of facial expressions, track and recognize faces, look people in the eye, and hold natural conversations with them.
Sophia made her debut at the South by Southwest show in March 2016. Since then, she has become a much-sought-after media personality. She has done numerous press interviews, garnering over one billion engagements on a CNBC online coverage. She has also appeared on the most broadly viewed television shows including CBS 60 Minutes with Charlie Rose, the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning Britain, and has been a keynote speaker, panel member, and meet-and-greeter at some of the world’s most prestigious conferences, and even addressed members of the United Nations General Assembly committee. She was recently named the world’s first United Nation Innovation Champion by United Nations Development Program (UNDP). Sophia is an accomplished brand ambassador and was featured in AUDI’s annual report and graced the cover and centerfold of ELLE magazine. According to Meltwater, her press coverage has a potential reach of over ten billion readers in 2017.
