A robot with artificial intelligence, Sophia, is coming to Bangladesh during this year’s Digital World exhibition, said State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak yesterday, reports UNB.

At a press conference at the secretariat Palak said “People will be able to meet and talk with Sophia, the human like robot 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.”

“On the occasion of this year’s Digital World Expo, we invited the first ever social robot Sophia and its creator David Hanson, they will reach Dhaka on December 5,” he said.

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.
