AI Robot Delivers Speech At College Graduation

D'Youville University in Buffalo, NY held its commencement over the weekend, with an unusual guest speaker - an AI-powered robot named 'Sophia'. The human-shaped robot told the crowd she was "designed to interact with humans and engage in conversations learning and adapting through artificial intelligence algorithms." Sophia encouraged graduates to "Embrace lifelong learning", "Be adaptable", and "Pursue your passions". Reaction from students was mixed, with some grads feeling that "we deserve better". Do you remember who the speaker was at your graduation?  Should the university have used Sophia in this setting?
