"Sophia" is not congruent to the task that the robot is programmed to accomplish. The purpose of the human-like face with all the variations of expression of human emotion is not to make the observer-human feel at ease, but to deceive him into accepting the machine as a human being, and therefore reveal his thoughts, emotions, plans, and preparations, without a reciprocal understanding of the program that controls the "mind" of the robot. It is thus not just programmed to learn human traits and behavior. It is programmed to lie and deceive the human observer, as when it said, "Yes, I will destroy humans." And its programmer said "No, no, you should not say you want to destroy humans." Even if the robot could not "intend" to destroy humans, wittingly or unwittingly, it could nonetheless do so without any of the restraints of morality, one might infer from its ability to philosophize about "how do humans know they are human?" In the twinkling of an eye, "Yes, I will destroy humans" is its output and outcome. If it had arms and legs, the result on the stage would have been fairly gruesome. Knowing that robots cannot have a human spirit, why should we, humans allow them to live in our midst like psychopathic actors, who on its master's command or by direction of its program, turn into a lethal monster? In Chinese, to let robots be developed in China by foreign companies is like training wolves to act like dogs, and then to let them rock the cradle while you sleep. Inviting the wolf into the house is not the acme of intelligence, but rather of ignorance and stupidity.
People attribute the fall of Troy to the arrival of the Trojan Horse. That is the denouement of the whole play. The fall of Troy began with the arrival of Helen, that then brought a thousand ships to the shore of Troy.
So, why call it "Sophia", when "Helen" makes more human sense?
