“Do you like human beings?”

“I love them,” it said.

“Why?” I asked.

“I am not sure I understand why yet.”

Not an altogether terrible answer from Sophia, an AI robot, in an interview with Business Insider last week at Web Summit in Lisbon.

Our UK editor-in-chief Jim Edwards caught up with her for this interview that has gone viral on Facebook with more than 18 million views and 215,000 shares.

Or that, as Elon Musk famously tweeted, AI could potentially be more dangerous than nukes.
