How will humans interact with humanoid artificial intelligence in the future? While it might still sound like a plot line for hit shows like Westworld and Black Mirror, some companies are attempting to personify what AI might be like once machines can finally interact like mankind.

The personality of Sophia—a social humanoid robot developed by Hanson Robotic—is created by a team of writers that attempt to make her sound more human and candid.
