Sophia the Robot

Thessaloniki is gearing up to welcome Sophia, the renowned AI robot, at the Beyond international exhibition for digital transformation, technology, and innovation. Hosted from April 25th to 27th, the event is set to introduce Sophia to the public in Thessaloniki, courtesy of TIF-HELEXPO SA and the Region of Central Macedonia.

Visitors to the exhibition, held at the Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre, will have the unique opportunity to interact with Sophia, who will be stationed at the stand of the Region of Central Macedonia on April 26th and 27th. Alongside her public engagement, Sophia will participate in a discussion on April 26th, joined by regional officials and technology experts.

As the world's first "social robot," Sophia possesses advanced capabilities to mimic human behaviour and evoke emotions. With over 60 facial expressions and the ability to learn from interactions, Sophia stands at the forefront of AI technology. Fluent in 20 languages, including Greek, Sophia's intellect surpasses that of Einstein, making her a remarkable feat of innovation.

Created in 2016, Sophia made history by receiving citizenship from Saudi Arabia in 2017, marking the first instance of legal recognition for a robot. Named a United Nations Development Programme Innovation Champion, Sophia's versatility extends to serving as companions for the elderly, assisting at events, and supporting educational endeavors.

Her presence at Beyond underscores the significance of AI in modern society, offering insights into its role and impact on daily life. Organised by TIF-HELEXPO, Beyond aims to be a leading event in Southeastern Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East, with support from governmental and industry partners.

Sophia's participation exemplifies the evolving landscape of technology and its integration into various aspects of human life, promising to enrich the visitor experience at Beyond.
