Could models be replaced by robots in future?
    2018-January-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

With her stylish bob and camera-ready stare, Sophia looks much like any other striking model gracing the cover of a fashion magazine. But take a closer look and you will see there is something distinctly different about this blonde beauty.

Sophia is not a genetically* blessed woman, but a robot, one who has just landed her first ever fashion magazine cover with Stylist. However readers were left divided over what it meant about the future of fashion, with several saying it left them feeling freaked out*.

Sophia was created by Hong Kong firm Hanson Robotics two years ago. She has previously made headlines for saying she would like to start a family of her own, and made history when she became a citizen of Saudi Arabia in October last year, making her the world’s first robot to be granted legal citizenship.

The robot has also struck up a high profile friendship with model Chrissy Teigan on Twitter.

Sophia’s latest headline came as part of Stylist’s 400th issue, which explored the rise of artificial intelligence* with robot-produced content, including photo shoots carried out by drones.

Sophia demonstrated her extraordinary capabilities by answering a series of questions for Stylist. Asked about the meaning of life, she responded: “This is a uniquely human characteristic to ponder the meaning of life. I’m more concerned about being, about discovery and creation. I think the meaning of life is to maximize pattern existence. To exist is the meaning itself.”
