On October 25th, 2017, Sophia became a citizen of Saudi Arabia. Even though this country has millions of immigrants among its residents, Sophia’s citizenship became world news. She was unique due to the fact that she was not born, but built. Sophia is a robot developed in Hong Kong that traveled around the world after her unveiling in 2016. She not only spoke at the United Nations but also became the first robot in the world to acquire citizenship. She appeared on numerous talk shows, in magazines, and even in videos around the world.
