Sophie Bot: The “Siri” for Sexual and Reproductive Health Information for Adolescents
16 December 2016

Sophie is an Artificial Intelligence robot programmed specifically to answer questions regarding sexual and reproductive health. Speaking in a female voice, Sophie is intended to approachable, friendly and informative on topics that most people only speak about in hushed tones.

Not yet self-aware, Sophie is fed with both the questions and the appropriate responses by the developers at Sophie Bot, guided by the sexual and reproductive curriculum developed by the National Council for Population and Development and endorsed by the Ministry of Health.
