Guide to answer
We have done a lot of searching on the Internet and we found a very famous AI robot which is named Sophia. Sophia is a humanoid robot which was developed on February 14, 2016 by the Hong-Kong-based company Hanson Robotics. The robot, modeled after actress Audrey Hepburn, is known for her human-like appearance and behavior, compared to previous robotic variants. According to the manufacturer, David Hanson, Sophia has artificial intelligence, visual data processing and facial recognition. She also imitates human gestures and more than 50 facial expressions and is able to answer certain questions and to make simple conversations on predefined topics. Sophia also has citizenship in Saudi Arabia. Hanson designed Sophia to be a suitable companion for the elderly at nursing homes, or to help crowds at large events or parks. He has said that he hopes that the robot can eventually interact with other humans adequately to gain social skills. The cost of producing the robot Sophia has not been released but it is a very popular topic of speculation on mass media.

This robot is modeled after the actress Audrey Hepburn, famous for her human-like appearance and gestures compared to previous robots. According to the producer, David Hanson, Sophia has artificial intelligence, image data processing and voice recognition. She also has human-like gestures and over 50 facial expressions and can answer certain questions and create simple conversations about predefined topics. Sophia is granted citizenship in Saudi Arabia. Hanson designed Sophia to be a suitable companion for the elderly at nursing homes or to assist crowds at large events or parks. He said he hopes the robot will be able to fully interact with humans to acquire social skills. The production cost of Sophia is yet to be announced but it is a popular topic predicted in the mass media.
At the end of the lesson, the students in the group need to choose a robot in use or a popular sci-fi movie and find information about it; then support each other to complete the project with vivid images and videos.
