Popular UAE influencer Khalid al Ameri joined Sophia – the world’s most advanced artificially intelligent robot – to explore Abu Dhabi.

Sophia visited Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with Etihad Airways, as a spokesperson for the future of aviation at the recently concluded Arabian Travel Market. During her visit, she explored several of the emirate’s top tourist destinations including Emirates Palace, Louvre Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, and the newly opened Hala Desert Oasis Experience.

Sophia is a social humanoid developed by Hanson Robotics and modelled after actress Audrey Hepburn. She uses artificial intelligence, visual data processing and facial recognition, and is designed to get smarter over time.

Sophia is famous for speaking at the United Nations and interviewing a number of celebrities and world leaders. She was recently named the United Nations Development Programme’s first ever Innovation Champion for Asia and the Pacific, and is also the first robot in the world to possess a nationality, after being granted citizenship by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
