I Robot

In October this year, Sophia the humanoid robot became the world’s 1st robot citizen when Saudi Arabia granted the robot legal citizenship. The robot is reported to have said, “I am very honored and proud for this unique distinction. This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with a citizenship.”

On 29 November 2017, the United Nations appointed its first ever non-human to champion the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on innovation. Mr. Xu, Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations said, “We are inspired by Sophia!

And thrilled to announce her as our first-ever Innovation Champion. In partnership with Sophia we can send a powerful message that innovation and technology can be used for good, to improve lives, protect the planet, and ensure that we leave no one behind.”

    SAUDI ARABIA is full of them, I do hope Sophia will wear a Burka and pray five times a day and has had FMG.

    It seems to be a worldwide mental illness but what’s causing it?

      Chem trails or Fluoride in the water, or Come Dancing.

    What’s this about not leaving some behind?

    It’s communism, isn’t it? It’s ensuring that everyone has the same. That no one benefits from effort. That success is punished. That failure is rewarded.

    That all suffer to ensure ‘fairness’. Communism ends one way: poverty, mass slaughter and misery leading to war. Always has, always will.

    Looks like they don’t have enough human robots. Or maybe it is the human ones keep on breaking and occasionally snap.

    They could at least have made it attractive.
