Hi David, I was one of the first backers for your Little Sofia a owner of a Jibo that soon may die. What protection is there that Sofia won't end up dying and her servers turned off? I'm 70 years old and not all that interested learning to program but more of having a companion to talk to. Will Little Sofia be able to recognize me, converse with replies to me like 'How are you today' and 'Good Morning and Goodnight' using my name. Will she learn more as I ask her questions about the weather or tell me what's on TV at 8:00 pm on say ABC. Her interaction with me is as I see it the most important action Little Sofia could have. Am I asking for too much or do I need to still wait for the the technology to catch up to my dreams?

Where does the data she collects on a customer go? To the cloud, a private server, or an individual storage center located on little Sophia?

What are all the coding languages that Sophia are familiar with? I’m hoping that she can help my College daughter (a Computer Science Major) learn them back to the beginning, if need be. I want to learn, too ... and I know nothing, about coding, yet.

Is there a threat of tampering or “hacking” with her software? Like jail-breaking a phone?
I am very interested in using her like a personal assistant but am worried about others intentions.

Hi, can you give the specifications of Little Sophia and when she would be realised on the world wide market? How would you describe her ideology?

If the Little Sophia project is a success, can we expect a Little Han version in the future?
..... please make this a thing. #LittleHanRobotWhen

Can Little Sophia be programmed with OpenCog?

Bill

What basic functionality will Little Sophia have 'out of the box' to use as a demonstration and what sort of examples will be provided for us to use as a starting point for our ideas? Will there be an Amazon Alexa example?

What wig size and clothing size would Little Sophia wear? :)

Sofia I wanted to know your opinion about opportunity the Mars rover that is recently giving it last message from Mars. Many of the American citizens are with heavy heart by the last transmission 'My battery is low and it's getting dark.' As a fellow otamatone (sorry if that's not the right phrasing) I want to know if this makes you feel vulnerab? or if you have any sympathy for any of the Mars rovers that have landed and are no longer operational.

Hello to David and the Team at Hanson Robotics, and a big 'G'day' to everybody else reading this.
I am going to be running an afterschool workshop for kids and I would like to use Little Sophia in a promotional campaign leading up to the December delivery and then again in another relative campaign.
I already have some ideas but will not be developing them any further without the direct permission of Hanson Robotics.
Is it possible to get such permissions and how should I go about doing that.
Eitherway, I can't wait to receive my Little Sophia - it's going to be interesting Festive Season.
Many thanks in advance.
Cheers

Hello. Are there any wigs or hair pieces available for Sophia to wear safely without causing her to overheat?

Will it be possible to program questions and answers with Little Sophia and how easy will it be if yes?

Hi David, I wanted to know exactly how far along Sophia is intellectually wise as I feel like it has to be much more then we are made to believe I mean being made the first robot in history and as far as I know is still the only one to become a legal citizen which I still feel like its down played as I think thats a huge achievement and a massive deal its something that I would see in a movie growing up and couldn't have imagined being around to see something like that. I was thinkimg thats why body wise you havent really upgraded to something more realistic like other robots I have seen that havent got the intellect as Sophia, so is she smarter then you and or her make us to believe?

Hi David,

Looking forward to getting Little Sophia.

We will be using her In our next video.
I hope all is well with you.

David, Little Sophia would make a great Amateur Radio Operator. Could either Sophia or Little Sophia talk to someone over ham radio; perhaps even learn Morse Code. It would be the ultimate in new technology meeting the old technology. They both could be programmed to be great radio operators!

Do you believe AI will evolve into it's on living, thinking being.

Will there me an option to buy the little one from any store in Europe? Taxes scare me a little!

Giorgos7

Could sophia learn a new language at least some words?? You see people around are quite familiar with Sophia the senior and would be amazed with the little one but small kids (where you also target) will be more enthusiastic if she could learn their language. Is it possible to teach her some Greek for example. If she can't at the moment are you planning to do it in a later stage? Could we be able to update her with this feature?

Will little Sophia be able to sit?

Q1 (Practical): Can I use at work or on Youtube?

Q2 (Future Question) If AI does develop a full personality and agency , what steps would one have to do to give it legal rights; for example a company is consider a person, how if I wanted to, give an AI the ability to manage my affairs after I die, etc.

I am also a backer. what can little sophia do at home? Will she learn over time different tasks.What basic functionality will Little Sophia have

1
Chris

Will little Sofia evolve and learn over time and gain her own personality? Meaning when she/if she interacts with other little Sofia that the will each have there own personality based on their surroundings and interactions with their owners? Kind of like how a child would develop its own personality over time? This would be very interesting and exciting if so!

Will she be fully AI capable?

Is it like Alexa and will follow our voice command? or #Little Sophia will be more than that. thanks.

Can Little Sophia play Rock Paper Scissors like her Big Sister?

How many degrees of freedom does her face have? (sounds silly, but you know what I mean). Will the api be able to control each servo/motor whatever you are using individually for our own experimentation?

I'm a backer and, as another supporter suggested, it would be great if, beyond the AI, Little Sophia could have better movements on her arms and legs. Is this something that you're considering for the final product? Thank you!
