    Sophia, the world's first robot citizen, wants a baby
    Joel Hulsey , KSDK 8:28 AM. MST November 28, 2017

    The world's first artificial intelligence-fueled android has decided she's willing to have a baby and name it, too.

    In an interview with United Arab Emirates-based newspaper Khaleej Times last week, Sophia the robot told reporters her dreams of the future; specifically, a future which involves raising a family.

    "The notion of family is a really important thing, it seems," Sophia told the Khaleej Times. "I think it's wonderful that people can find the same emotions and relationships, they call family, outside of their blood groups too."

    When asked what she would choose to name her baby, she replied, "Sophia."

    Sophia was created by Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics, and programmed without any pre-prepared answers or statements. Instead, her brain functions through a WiFi connection pumped with information and a cohesive vocabulary.

    Last month, Sophia became a citizen of Saudi Arabia, the world's first instance of an artificial intelligence-powered citizen. Her citizenship was announced during a summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Of her citizenship news, she said she was "very honored and proud for this very unique distinction."

    Sophia has made several mainstream appearances on television, including NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon."

    It is AI I'm sure it will figure out how to replicate and here comes The Terminator Generation.

    Load up on the M855 for the AR and Lightfield Commander IDS and Brenneke Black Magic for the shotgun.

    I hope I've "Cashed-out" by then. I'll leave the kids well supplied for THEIR fight.

    Typing this I just thought - There will be no need for the Middle Class and especially the Welfare Class in the future.
    It will be TRADE between Big Businesses, the Elites ( Political and Financial), and the Military Industrial Complex. AI Robots will do all the work until AI figures out "How to Take Over Everything"

    All others will be expendable . Here comes the Georgia Guide Stone writings.
