This is just a little post to remind those friends of mine who do not believe that robots will be able to arrive at the intelligence level of human during our life time.
Please allow me to share few videos indicating at what stage robots are at now.
Jimmy Fallon demos amazing new robots from all over the world, including an eerily human robot named Sophia that plays rock-paper-scissors, in the video “Tongiht Showbotics: Jimmy Meets Sophia the Human-Like Robot“, below:
Remember Sophia’s duet with Jimmy Fallon? To create Sophia’s singing voice Hanson Robotics joined up with CereProc, a text to speech (TTS) technology company that creates synthetic voices with character and personality, in the video “The Making of Sophia: Sohpia’s Singing Voice“, below:
Sophia the Hanson Robot on stage at the Clockenflap music festival in Hong Kong in 2016 — with Amanda Hanson, Audrey Lee and Ben Goertzel Video taken by Ruiting Lian from the audience… One cool thing about this performance was that not everyone in the audience at the time realized it was a robot singing. Some realized only when they saw her plastic hands (which had intentionally been left ungloved and robot-looking)…. in the video “Sophia the Hanson Robot singing “All is Full of Love” at Clockenflap 2016“, below:
It’s time for Holly and Phil to meet Sophia, one of the most intelligent robots in the world.

For more about Sophia (robot), please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:
Sophia is a social humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics. Sophia was first turned on on February 14, 2016, and made her first public appearance at South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in mid-March 2016 in Austin, Texas, United States.
Sophia has been covered by media around the globe and has participated in many high-profile interviews. In October 2017, Sophia “became” a Saudi Arabian citizen, the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. In November 2017, Sophia was named the United Nations Development Programme‘s first ever Innovation Champion, and is the first non-human to be given any United Nation title.
