Sophia, the world’s first artificially intelligent robot from Hanson Robotics, on Wednesday expressed her gratitude through a video massage as the ICT Division of Bangladesh invited her to join this year’s Digital World expo in Dhaka.
In a video message prior to her visit Sophia said, “Hello Bangladesh, I’m Sophia – The world’s first artificially intelligent robot from Hanson Robotics. I’m excited to let you know that me and Dr David Hanson will participate in this year’s Digital World 2017 in Dhaka. I cannot wait to be a part of this great event. Thank you to ICT Division Bangladesh government and Islami Bank Bangladesh to create this opportunity for us. Hope to see you all there. Dhonnobaad,” said a press release of ICT Division on Thursday.
Sophia, the human like robot, will meet Bangladeshi people on the first day of Digital World exhibition on December 6 from 2:30 pm to 4 pm at Banganandhu International Conference Centre in the capital.
The four-day expo will start on December 6 and conclude on December 9.
Sophia was given Saudi citizenship earlier this year, making her the first robot ever to get such a status from a country.
