SXSW Robot Agrees To Destroy Humans

Oops. Not "3 laws strong", apparently. Sophia the robot is quite lifelike, or at least very animated, with a notably expressive - and therefore that much more creepy - face. Sophia can carry on a conversation, and is programmed to learn.
Sophia has 62 facial and neck architectures and a patented silicon skin called Frubber. She has cameras in her eyes that allow her to recognize faces and make eye contact. And she can participate in a conversation, using speech recognition software. She is even equipped with what Hanson Robotics calls its "Character Engine AI" software, or a personality.
Unfortunately, Sophia apparently gets confused at one point during a conversation shown below and agrees to destroy humans. Oh dear.
