ABU DHABI, May 15, 2018

Etihad Airways has brought Sophia the Robot – the world’s most advanced Artificially Intelligent robot – to Abu Dhabi to explore and discover all the excitement and emotions one can experience on a visit to the UAE capital.

Sophia is officially the first robot to race Yas Marina Circuit, ride the world’s fastest rollercoaster at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, and experience the beauty of Louvre Abu Dhabi.

In a new video released by Etihad Airways, Sophia is seen accompanied throughout by UAE influencer Khalid al Ameri, a popular Emirati personality known for creating heartfelt videos about himself and his family on social media.

Sophia is the AI-powered robot famous for speaking at the UN and interviewing a number of celebrities and world leaders. She was recently named the United Nations Development Programme’s first ever Innovation Champion for Asia and the Pacific, and is also the first robot in the world to possess a nationality, after being granted citizenship by Saudi Arabia.
