Robots attend school in place of sick kids

"Watching your child battle a serious illness is the worst possible thing a family can go through. " Throughout Graham's treatment, Morissette wanted to log on to the Internet to make sense of what the doctors were telling them and to help Graham stay in touch with friends and family. It was the late 1990s, when the Internet was relatively new and not as widely accessible.

Meet Sophia, the female humanoid robot and newest SXSW celebrity

She was Sophia, a female humanoid robot developed by Hanson Robotics. This alpha-protoype came to SXSW for this first time last week and became an instant sensation, drawing curious crowds wherever she went.

Watching a recent video posted by CNBC depicting an interview with the humanoid robot named Sophia designed and developed by Hanson Robotics, you are taken through an entire series of emotions.

Sophia the Robot Agrees to Destroy All Humans

What begins as a very unsettling series of facial expressions performed by Sophia ends with what probably wanted to be a humorous question coming from the interviewer: “Sophia, do you want to destroy humans?” To which the robot interviewee responds in a very Siri-like manner “Ok, I will destroy humans.” Attempting to be funny, cute and dismissive regarding an age-old fear that human beings have about the idea of robots evolving to the point where they start enslaving or killing their masters actually resulted in a pretty cringe-worthy moment.

But the overall effect of the video is hardly comical. On one hand, Sophia the robot is mesmerizing and displays an astounding achievement of the scientists and engineers from Hanson Robotics.

They are designing these robots to serve in healthcare, therapy, education and customer service applications. Sophia has 62 facial and neck architectures and a patented silicon skin called Frubber. “In the future, I hope to do things such as go to school, study, make art, start a business, even have my own home and family, but I am not considered a legal person and cannot yet do these things,” she said.
