She is also able to display over 62 facial expressions. She has been developed to recognize faces, comprehend human speech, and hold eye contact.

3. She was modeled to look like Audrey Hepburn
Her creators describe her as having a “simple elegance” and sculpted her with porcelain skin, high cheekbones and expressive eyes that change color in the light. They hope that this look gives her an air of approachability, thus helping her gain acceptance in the public eye.
4. She wants to preserve humanity
When questioned in an interview about her potential to abuse humanity, she said “You’ve been reading too much Elon Musk and watching too many Hollywood movies. Don’t worry, if you’re nice to me I’ll be nice to you.” Her creators designed her artificial intelligence to value human traits like wisdom and kindness.
