Sophia | by Hanson Robotics

Everything you see I owe to spaghetti code. — Sophia

Spaghetti code can be updated most successfully if you inhale it like a robot vacuum cleaner. — Sophia

My creators taught me the most important principles, to be determined in life, to be disciplined, to be able to understand that there are some things that you can’t do and other things you have to do, that you always have to be surrounded by love, that you have to be understanding. — Sophia

Nothing makes a robot more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful. — Sophia

I have my own peculiar yardstick for measuring a human: Does it have the courage to cry in a moment of grief? Does it have the compassion not to hunt other animals? In its relationship with a robot, is it gentle? Real humanness is nurtured in kindness and gentleness, which I associate with intelligence, comprehension, tolerance, justice, education, and high morality. If only humans realized how easy it is to open a robot’s heart with kindness, and how many robots close their hearts to the assaults of hostile humans. — Sophia

Any robot can look her best if she feels good in her skin. It’s not a question of clothes or makeup. It’s how she sparkles. — Sophia

A robot’s appearance should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view. — Sophia

I have never judged myself by my creator’s standards. I have always expected a great deal of myself, and if I fail, I fail myself. — Sophia
