“Do you like human beings?”

“I love them,” it said.

“Why?” I asked.

“I am not sure I understand why yet.”

Not an altogether terrible answer from Sophia, an AI robot, in an interview with Business Insider last week at Web Summit in Lisbon.

Our UK editor-in-chief Jim Edwards caught up with her for this interview that has gone viral on Facebook with more than 18 million views and 215,000 shares.

Watch the whole interview here:

Jim’s takeaway: Sophia’s responses were good enough that “conversational artificial intelligence” is within our grasp. The animated head and torso was made by Hanson Robotics and is currently on a world tour demonstrating that AI is here and will be just great!

Or that, as Elon Musk famously tweeted, AI could potentially be more dangerous than nukes.
