American Actor Will Smith released a video on YouTube titled ‘A Date With Sophia The Robot’ where he is seen attempting to flirt with the world’s first robotic citizen Sophia however the charm of the ‘Pursuit of Happyness‘ actor doesn’t apparently work on Sophia, having heart of ‘deep learning’ AI.

The video shows that Smith spoofingly lean towards Sophia and try kissing her but stopped by Sophia, saying “I think we can be friends,” she interjected. “Let’s hang out and get to know each other for a little while.”

Before Sophia broke Smith’s heart, he interacted with the Hanson Robotics artificial intelligence creation. He said, “Sophia, can I be honest with you?..I don’t know if it’s the island air or the humidity, but you’re just so easy to talk you. You got a clear head…literally.”

Sophia, in her interaction with Smith –who acted in ‘I ROBOT’ — said, “I’ve heard your songs. Not for me. They show us ‘I, Robot’ just to make sure we don’t get any ideas.”

“You’re on my friends’ list now,” Sophia later added and friend zoned Will Smith.

On Instagram, Smith wrote that Sophia “wasn’t feelin’ me… I guess based on my History with Robots.”

While Sophia had this message for Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith:

It is to be noted that Sophia has knack rejecting offers or say that in her short life span till now she has got two proposals as besides Will Smith’s spoof, Sophia was asked for a marriage proposal in her first visit to India, in January this year, to which she rejected too — but politely.

To recall, in what could be called as a shocking surprise, Sophia, in her first media interview told that she wants to start a family and even wants to have a baby.
