Sophia the robot takes her first steps - CNET. Oops. Maybe robots will take over law practice after all. Sophia, a highly intelligent, AI robot head that speaks like an adult, and has limitless knowledge, is getting a body and legs. This video shows her first steps, and she is much like an infant learning to walk. While industrial and business applications will be the first to exploit these walking, talking robots, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that, as they become sleeker and more human like, other occupations will take a hit. Can they become sentient? Who knows. Most of us will likely be long gone from the planet before that happens, if it ever does. But, science fiction is looking more like science fact, isn't it?
