Robot Sophia

Sophia is the creation of robotics expert David Hanson, who believes that artificial life forms can foster better connections with people if they take on a human form. According to Daily mail

Coined by Japanese professor of robotics Masahiro Mori, it refers to the point at which a robot looks almost realistic enough to pass for a human, but retain enough artificiality to make people uncomfortable.

Dr Hanson modelled Sophia after Audrey Hepburn and his wife and is intended to embody classic beauty, the company says.

Have ALIENS lived on Earth before?

Ancient Inca 'string writing' was NOT just used for accounting

Hundreds of years ago, the Inca people in South America used elaborate twists of colorful animal hair much like a ‘written’ language.

It’s known that these cords were used to record numerical accounts – but now, researchers have discovered that they may also have acted as a form of phonetic writing, with specific combinations thought to convey particular syllables or words.

This is the first evidence that ‘string writing’ was used to record narratives, the researchers say, and could help to unravel some of the mysteries of the ancient civilization.
