It looks like Will Smith didn’t learn his lesson from I, Robot. The actor/comedian uploaded a video to his YouTube channel of his “date” with Sophia the Robot.
Sophia is an artificial intelligence robot that was developed by Hanson Robotics in Hong Kong. Sophia the humanoid was activated on April 19, 2015, and received citizenship to Saudi Arabia in October 2017.
While Sophia only has 62 facial expressions and limited ability to gauge human emotions, she was unimpressed by Smith. She even went as far as telling him she didn’t like his music.
Watch the hilarious date above.
