Citizenship to a Robot? Yes, Sophia is the World’s First Robot With Citizenship Rights!

Friday, February 9th, 2018

By now many reading this article are thinking in their heads, what is Sophia and how come I have never heard of her? Most importantly what and why would a robot attain citizenship. Well IT GURUS OF ATLANTA is here to tell the world that the citizenship is no joke. As of October 25th, 2017, Sophia which is a full-sized robot which has demonstrated social skills and knowledge unmatched by many others in the world.  Sophia of course by the name is a female robot and is also a full pledged citizen of Saudi Arabia which granted the citizenship to the robot.

Sophia is a perfect example of the work of Artificial Intelligence or best called AI. Sophia is capable of speaking concerning business across multiple platforms and industries. She has already met with a variety of decisionmakers across the world and assisted with many different key business decisions. The United Nations has already recognized Sophia by giving her an official role working with UNDP to safeguard human rights. How can a robot accomplish so much in such a little time, well its precisely said, Sophia is a robot and is currently the flagship for her maker, which is Hanson Robotics.

Sophia has managed to grab a reader base that subscribe to her videos and press coverages of over 10 billion readers in 2017. This is an astronomical figure as most celebrities themselves do not reach a pinnacle of that much of a fan-based audience.   The key feature of Sophia is her ability to display emotion and adapt to her environment by changing the tone, then matching what she is saying with the appropriate expression. The creator and owner of Sophia is Dr. David Hanson. Mr. Hanson worked previously as an “Imagineer” at Disney.   Because of his genius he was able to leave Disney and create his own company. Mr. Hanson’s motto is that to for robot to have the fundamental likeness of humanity, then the robot should possess creativity, empathy, and compassion. Those three traits are the design for a fully interactive experience with an AI such as Sophia.


The next phase in the Hanson Robotics project is to manufacture Sophia or “like-Sophia’s” for home use. Currently the production cost of the original Sophia is too much for the average person to afford, but the open platform allows for any developer to create their own Sophia built off of the current algorithms that Sophia is running on. Hanson Robotics which is based out of Hong Kong, built Sophia and modelled her features off of Audrey Hepburn, whom was a famous British actress.  Much of the features of crying. Laughing, and even expressing joy or anger is features that were displayed by Audrey Hepburn during her time.

Sophia has graduated since her original introduction to now being able to walk on her own with Hanson Robotics adding legs to her repute.  As AI technology develops so does the learning capabilities and functions with Sophia. She is adamant about protecting human rights and is a clear derivative of the future and where we as a society is heading. Now how much control and human-likeness will be give this humanoid generation is unclear, but definitely is a eye-brow raiser as the future begins to unfold. IT GURUS OF ATLANTA is dedicated to ensure that these technological breakthroughs are brought to the cusp of inquiring minds. It is our dedication and quality that recognizes these changes and adapt along with the change of times.

First Commercial Flight to Moon in 2018– Tesla, SpaceX, and Elon Musk

Monday, September 4th, 2017

The tech world is a buzz today as news about new space suits, NASA, reusable rockets, and more manned missions. In the mix with all of this you might hear of a company called Space X. Space X, many people may think they are associated with Xbox or some super cool sounding product line that’s for electronics. To the surprise of many, Space X is one of the contractors that NASA awarded 1.6 billion dollars for contractual projects in 2008. Space X is one of the largest contractors in North America to service NASA. SpaceX over the next few years, and since 2008 has been contracted to provide 12 cargo transport missions including produce rocket systems for ISS (International Space Station).

Elon Musk – SpaceX – NASA

Elon Musk, who is the CEO and founder of Space X, has been tasked by NASA to have his company create space suits, rocket propulsion systems, and rockets.  Musk’s personal mission for this company has been to have humans occupy a self-sustaining city on Mars and our civilization to be a multi-planet species.  Since embarking on this massive contract from NASA, SpaceX has not only become the first contractor to launch and recover a spacecraft from earth’s orbit, then return it to earth safely.  SpaceX’s specialty which has given them the industry boost that peaked the interest of NASA which is what earned them the award. SpaceX’s industry niche is that they produce fully reusable rockets and spacecrafts. This not only saves NASA billions of dollars, but also allows for production of these rockets and spacecraft to be done quickly and efficiently by reusing the same rockets.

SpaceX and Tesla – Hyperloop

Mr. Musk’s popularity has peaked by him also being the CEO, Co-Founder, and product Architect of Tesla. Yes, that’s right, Tesla. Not too many car enthusiasts have not already heard of Tesla which is leading the way in electrical car innovation and design. By being the CEO of Tesla, he has partnered both companies to do some very extraordinary things. Earlier this year, IT GURUS OF ATLANTA depicted “Hyperloop One’s” hyperloop test which tapped out at 192 MPH to give life into the hyperloop. Who says being the CEO of two multi-billion-dollar companies doesn’t have its perks? Well its does when you are trying to push the technology standards and expectations to new levels. By pushing the standards to new levels, what we mean is that there is a Tesla/SpaceX Hyperloop which is making waves. This hyperloop has already tested down SpaceX’s Hyperloop test track at speeds of 220 MPH which beats Hyperloop One’s test just a few months prior. This being their initial test of their Hyperloop, they are anticipating its next leap will be to achieve the speed of sound which is at 500 MPH.  By having students to compete through a competition, SpaceX and Tesla have brought around friendly competition, and its competition without a price tag being attached.


Falcon 9 and Dragon Spacecraft

Falcon 9 is what SpaceX used to makes its debut with NASA being the first commercial company to enter earth’s orbit and contact the ISS (International Space Station). Most contacts with the station have been strictly government based and 100% through NASA as the conduit. Most rockets that have been used in the past were one-time use based which the parts dissipated over the ocean, went into the solar orbit of the sun, or dropped on the moon. Now what sets SpaceX’s Falcon 9 different form the rest is that it is completely reusable. Falcon 9 has only two stages of separation unlike previous rockets, and all parts land back at the location from which they originally took off successfully. This ability for the rocket to be used repeatedly cuts the cost of production for the rocket including increases the amount of missions the rocket can accomplish. Dragon is cargo capsule which Falcon 9 has been using to transport cargo and supplies to the crew aboard the ISS (International Space Station). So far Falcon 9 and Dragon have completed 11 missions for 2017, which is more than the 9 which were completed last year and year still isn’t over.

SpaceX Private Crew on Dragon Spacecraft to Go Past Moon 2018

Two private citizens have paid to be a part of the manned crew that the Dragon 2 Spacecraft will take around the moon next year. The two individuals will be accompanied by a commercial crew which is currently being tested extensively through fitness and health tests. This effort is part of the deal that SpaceX sparked with NASA and they are dubbing it their Commercial Crew Program.  The first part of the program will include an “automatic” mode which will have the entire Spacecraft automatically launch and link with the ISS (International Space Station) and is slated for first quarter of 2018. The second phase of the program includes having a crew going up to the ISS (International Space Station).  The second phase is scheduled to take place in the 2nd quarter of 2018.  This historical liftoff will take place at Kennedy Space Center’s historic Pad 39A near Cape Canaveral.  This moment is marked since humans have not returned to deep space in the last 45 years. After these trips around the moon become more frequent, the next phase in the project is to get humans to make regular trips to Mars.

The SpaceX Space Suit

Mr. Mock has decided to unveil even more goodies to the IT world as he has taken the dream further by showing off their SpaceX space suits. No longer the bulky images of the past astronauts, but now a sleeker design which does more to protect the person wearing it than previous bulky designs.  The suits offer more agility and flexibility when the wearers are looking to move around the ship. Bear in mind that these are not replacements for the suits used to walk in outer space as they do very little to protect against the harsh atmosphere that outer space has.  The suits will be used during space travel into outer space and back. This is designed in case cabin pressure is lost then the suits will compensate to protect the wearer. The first manned missions which the astronauts will wear these all white suits is scheduled to take place on May 2018.
