Speech given by Mr. David Hanson - founder and CEO of Hanson Robotics




Thank you Dr. David Hanson, the founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Hanson Robotics, to give us a super innovative and insightful talk at our Distinguished Guest Speaker Series. I love the amazing works from Sophia robot and I hope more ideas will come up to work with Sophia in the hospitality industries.


—“Sophia has been covered by media around the globe and has participated in many high-profile interviews. In October 2017, Sophia "became" a Saudi Arabian citizen, the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. In November 2017, Sophia was named the United Nations Development Programme's first ever Innovation Champion and is the first non-human to be given any United Nation title.”
