Inspiring Robot: Sophia


By now most people know Sophia from her many public performances. Sophia is a highly articulated humanoid robot developed by Hanson robotics. She has an amazing artificial personality and astonishing facial expressions. 

And the best: the software is open source!



Hanson Robotics have focused on making life-like robots. They use artificial skin for their robot faces, called Frubber (flesh rubber). In addition to Sophia they have a mini Einstein and a robot that looks like Phillip K. Dick.

They develop their own AI, called cogchar which works along with glue.ai.
