People simply welcomed Sophia not only warmly but as soon as Sophia took the stage, the people played amidst applause. Apart from this, Sophia gave a speech for about 15 minutes on stage, which was in Hindi. Female robot Sofia greeted people by saying ‘Hello India, I am Sofia’. Some of the people sitting stood up and accepted Sophia’s greetings and applauded the courage.
About 3000 people were present in the hall to listen to Sophia. During this time Sophia talked to people on many human issues. However, due to a technical problem for some time, Sofia was silent on stage. However, the organizers removed the problem and after that Sophia started speaking again. It is not that during Sophia’s speech only she was the subject of discussion among the people, but after her speech, there were lots of discussions about Sophia.
Let us tell you that Robot Sophia is the world’s first such female robot who has been given citizenship of a country. Since then, this has been a topic of discussion in the science and technology sector among the students of the world. Sophia, wearing orange and white sari, highlighted various issues of India in the discussion session of Techfest. She said that India’s culture and diversity is its identity. The city, the buildings and the progress of various areas is remarkable. She said that instead of looking at people’s looks and comparing them, we should make our own identity different.
When the audience questioned Sophia about her visit to India, Sophia responded, “I always wanted to travel to India. I have heard a lot about this vibrant country’s tradition and culture. Indians have always contributed to the Silicon Valley and I have always been very excited about India’s investment in space technology. “
