The world's first robot citizen with artificial intelligence, Sophia, arrived in Dhaka on early Tuesday to attend the country's digital fair-- Digital World 2017.
A Dragon Airlines flight carrying boxes with Sophia’s body parts landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport from Hong Kong around 4am.
Confirming the news, Public Relations Officer of the government’s ICT Division Abu Naser said Dr David Hanson, Sophia’s creator, is due to arrive on Tuesday night. He will reinstall Sophia before the showcase kicks off.
There will be two sessions on Wednesday for Sophia. In the first session, the robot will have a meeting with the country's policymakers and journalists.
In the second session, there will be a discussion with young video game, software and app developers and innovators. Dr David Hanson will also present the keynote paper on artificial intelligence at the event.
