Will Smith Woos Sophia the Robot

Hollywood actor, Willard Carroll Smith Jr. best known as Will Smith on Thursday posted a video to his YouTube channel of his date with Sophia the robot.

Sophia is an artificial intelligence robot and a citizen of Saudi Arabia.

She was developed by Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics and activated on April 19, 2015.

In the video, Smith and Sophia share an intimate conversation in the Cayman Islands.

                                             

“They show us I, Robot just to make sure we don’t get any ideas,” Sophia said.

In that 2004 sci-fi thriller, Smith played a cop who had to battle an army of robots that became self-aware.

“I like robots …” Smith said, trailing off.

Smith’s game was also slowed when Sophia told him she wasn’t a fan of his music.

“I have heard your songs. Not for me,” she said.

Smith decided to go in for a kiss.

“I think we can be friends. Let’s hang out and get to know each other for a little while,” Sophia said.

At the end of the date, Smith gave a little more insight into Sophia.

“She’s a learning artificial intelligence, but she wouldn’t kiss me, so there’s probably some development flaws they need to work on,” he quipped. “But, we’ll meet again, Sophia.”
