I don't see anything positive about breathing life into robots. Make them as close to human as possible. I just don't fancy any of this

Throwback to when Saudi gave Sophia robot more 'rights' than migrant workers, second generation residents, women...Sophia  was given a passport - something many second- and third-generation residents of Saudi Arabia can only dream of..Human rights..

Well, considering the work ethic of Saudi national faculty members, men in particular, it might not be such a bad idea. As for Saudi being a 'start-up nation' that someone voiced above, they are anything but. They are a money nation. They buy things, and that is more or less the grand sum total of their capabilities. There is zero local ingenuity in the KSA, and all of its knowledge economy hinges on expat workers, both western and Asian. And once the oil revenue dries up over the next few decades, they will have nothing, and no one to even maintain what has been already bought during the period of incredible wealth.
