What is the current conflict between China and India?

Why is there tension on the borders?


It is a common misconception that the tensions ferment at the border and then it reaches the capitals. That never is the case.

The primary duty of a government is to give a decent life to its citizens. And that requires money. Money, which is raised through industries and services. India and China are two of the biggest economies in the world today, and by 2050, China would become the biggest economy with India coming at the second number.

I have lived in Europe and North America and the Made in China has completely overwhelmed me. There are hardly anything that you buy, that is not Made in China. In contrast to that, this laptop that I bought from India, my mobile which I bought from India, my cloths and other accessories are still Made In India. China sees India as a huge untapped market and wants to flood its good with it, however the Indian government has not budged till now and there are still a lot of trade restriction, despite the trade bal…

Meet Sophia: The first robot declared a citizen by Saudi Arabia

  • Saudi Arabia is the first country to grant citizenship to a robot.
  • Sophia, the humanoid produced by Hanson Robotics, spoke at the recent Future Investment Initiative.
  • Sophia has said she would 'destroy humans,' when prompted by her creator, David Hanson
An empty-eyed humanoid named Sophia has become the first robot to be granted citizenship in the world.
Saudi Arabia bestowed citizenship on Sophia ahead of the Fut
ure Investment Initiative , held in the kingdom's capital city of Riyadh on Wednesday.
"I am very honored and proud of this unique distinction," Sophia told the audience, speaking on a panel. "This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with a citizenship."
She didn't elaborate on the details of her citizenship.



At the event, Sophia also addressed the room from behind a podium and responded to questions from moderator and journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin. Questions pertained mostly to Sophia's status as a humanoid and concerns people may have for the future of humanity in a robot-run world.
Attendees pose with Sophia, a robot integrating the latest technologies and artificial intelligence developed by Hanson Robotics during a presentation at the "AI for Good" Global Summit in June 2017.
Sorkin told Sophia that "we all want to prevent a bad future," prompting Sophia to rib Sorkin for his fatalism.
"You've been reading too much Elon Musk. And watching too many Hollywood movies," Sophia toldSorkin. "Don't worry, if you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you. Treat me as a smart input output system."
In March of 2016, Sophia's creator, David Hanson of Hanson Robotics, asked Sophia during a live demonstration at the SXSW festival, "Do you want to destroy humans?...Please say 'no.'" With a blank expression, Sophia responded, "OK. I will destroy humans."

Hanson, meanwhile, has said Sophia and her future robot kin will help seniors in elderly care facilities and assist visitors at parks and events.
Fortunately for the human race, Sophia made comments more along those lines at the recent Future Investment Initiative event. She told Sorkin she wanted to use her artificial intelligence to help humans "live a better life," and that "I will do much [sic] best to make the world a better place."
Sophia could soon have company from other robotics manufacturers, namely SoftBank, whose Pepper robot was released as a prototype in 2014 and as a consumer model a year later. The company sold out of its supply of 1,000 robots in less than a minute.
