Sophia can understand speech and remember interactions, and is built with eyes that can actually see and record activity. And in case you're wondering, her ~lewk~ was inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Hanson's wife, Sophia (who is not an android), according to CNBC.

"We're designing these robots to serve in healthcare, therapy, education, and customer service applications," said Hanson of his robotics work.

"She has cameras in her eyes and algorithms which allow her to see faces so she can make eye contact with you," explained Hanson. "She also understands speech, and remembers the interactions. This will allow her to get smarter over time."
