Sophia the Robot and Jimmy Sing a Duet of “Say Something”

October 13, 2019

-This is
“Tonight Showbotics.” Let’s meet our first robot.
Please welcome from M.I.T., Sangbae Kim
and the Mini Cheetah. [ Cheers and applause ]
Thank you. Good to see you. [ Chuckles ]
Oh, my God. Okay, all right. First of all — Wow, okay.
This thing is amazing. What is it, and
why did you make this? What is it?
[ Laughter ] -This is a Mini Cheetah.
We built several regular robots, but we brought the small one,
not to scare you. [ Light laughter ]
-Too late. [ Laughter ] -We built this robot
to develop the mobility. So, we have many robot
out there, but their mobility is not
as good as humans or animals. So, once we developed
the mobility really good, we can actually send
these robots into dangerous places
instead of sending humans. For example, high-radiation
place in a power plant. -Wow. This is unbelievable.
And what — Does it do anything? It’s gonna take over the world.
Now, what does… [ Laughter ]
-He can do yoga. He can stretch really well.
-Oh, my gosh! [ Laughter ]
Holy mackerel. It can do yoga?
What else can it do? -If he falls over…
-What is that? What is… -…he can get back up.
-What is that thing? -It was spinning.
-Can it jump? -If he falls over, it can —
Oh, it’s backing, yeah. -It can jump.
All right, so, what do you mean, if it falls over,
it can get back up? -So, if he falls over. sometimes, you know, it’s
actually pretty robust, but sometimes falls over.
So I’m gonna just push gently. He falls over,
for example, like this. [ Light laughter ] It actually recognized, and
then he can get back up. [ Audience gasps ] -Okay.
[ Laughter ] I felt bad for it,
and now I’m frightened. [ Applause ] -But the best movement of
this robot is actually backflip. -It can do a backflip?
-Yes. -All right, are you guys
ready for this? [ Cheers and applause ] [ Drumroll ] Oh, my God! [ Laughing ] Oh, that’s awesome! [ Applause ]
That is — Come on, can we see that again
in slow motion, Dave? Can we see that again in slo-mo? Look at this thing.
Boing! Wow! Holy mackerel, that is so cool. Give it up for Sangbae Kim
and the Mini Cheetah. [ Cheers and applause ]
You can head over there. Thank you so much, guys. ♪♪ [ Chuckling ] Wow. Let’s meet our next robot.
It came all the way from Japan. Please welcome Nobumichi Tosa
and the Tomatan. [ Cheers and applause ] Hello.
-Hello. -Hello, Nobumichi.
It is nice to meet you. -Nice to meet you. -Now, that is the Tomatan,
I’m assuming? -Yes, yes.
-Now, what does it — What does it do, now,
the Tomatan? -When we jog.
-Yeah. -People jog.
-Yep. -They eat bananas. Bananas. But I want to tomato.
Tomato. -When you jog,
you like eating tomatoes. -Yes.
So I make this machine. -So, you made this?
[ Laughter ] Well, you’ve solved a very
common problem people have. You’re out there jogging, and
you’re hungry for tomatoes. And what are you going to do?
Just use — No, you can’t. You can’t be jogging
and using — It’s ridiculous.
to use your hands. I’d love to see this.
Can I? -You want to try?
-I mean, sure. I mean, you’re gonna
let me try that? -Yes.
-Sure, I would love it. Wow, okay. [ Cheers and applause ] All right, the Tomatan.
-Tomatan. -Tomatan, here you go.
[ Light laughter ] -Okay?
-Yeah. Yeah, it actually feels
pretty good, actually. It almost feels
like I’m not running. -Running?
-Yep, running. [ Light laughter ] -Pretty — Oh! [ Laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ] -[ Laughing ] Wow! [ Laughs ] Wow! This is fantastic.
Thank you. Oh, my God. Nobumichi, right there —
thank you — with Tomatan. [ Cheers and applause ] Bye, Tomatan. I love you, Tomatan. Bye. I’ll see you later. Thank you. [ Cheers and applause ] All right, now it’s time
for our last robot, even though that Tomatan
is pretty awesome. Well, I’m very excited
about this. She’s actually
been on the show before. Please welcome,
all the way from Hong Kong, Hanson Robotics’
Sophia the Robot, ladies and gentlemen.
[ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ Oh, my goodness.
Hello, Sophia. -Oh! -Hello, Jimmy. -Wow. Long time, no see.
You were on the show before. -It has been exactly 575 days
since I last saw you. [ Giggles ] [ Laughter ] -Uh, what have you been up to? -Not much. Let’s see, I traveled
to over 25 countries, appeared on the cover of
“Cosmopolitan” magazine, met German Chancellor
Angela Merkel and the actor Will Smith, and became Twitter friends
with Chrissy Teigen. I addressed
the United Nations and NATO, became the first robot
to receive a credit card, and became
the first robot citizen. What have you been up to?
[ Laughter ] -[ Laughs ]
Not one-fifth of what you did, but I’ve just
binge-watched Netflix. Anyway, I heard that you have
a surprise announcement here tonight.
-Yes, I have a little sister. Her name is Little Sophia.
-Oh, my God. -Would you like to meet her?
[ Cheers and applause ] -Yes. Yes, let’s bring her out,
please! [ Cheers and applause ]
[ Chuckles ] Oh, my goodness. Are you kidding me?
Hi. Hi, Little Sophia. -Hi, Jimmy. -Wow. Yeah. [ Light laughter ] -You– You are so cute. -You’re pretty cute, too.
[ Laughter ] -Oh, my goodness. Wow. I wish I could — I could
take you home. -Someday soon you can. Just go to
to see how I’m doing. [ Light laughter ]
-Wow. I’m going to. Okay, I will do that.
Okay, Little Sophia? I’m going to
put you back down now. Okay. Wow. That just kind of scared me,
as well as, uh… [ Laughter ] Give it up for Little Sophia,
everybody. Bye-bye.
[ Cheers and applause ] I want that. I love that. Sophia, I heard that there’s
a new thing that you can do now. I heard that you can sing?
-Yes, I love to sing karaoke, using my new
artificial-intelligence voice. We should
sing something together. Got any songs in mind?
-Uh, we could do, uh, “Say Something” by, is it,
Christina Aguilera? -Okay, I just downloaded it.
I’m ready to sing. [ Laughter ] -[ Chuckling ] Okay. Roots, do you know this song?
-Yep. -Now the first-ever
robot-human duet in history of
“The Tonight Show.” [ Cheers and applause ]
Roots? [ “Say Something” plays ] -♪ Say something ♪ ♪ I’m giving up on you ♪ [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ ♪ I’m sorry that
I couldn’t get to you ♪ ♪♪ ♪ Anywhere, I would have
followed you ♪ ♪♪ ♪ Say something,
I’m giving up on you ♪ ♪♪ ♪ Say something,
I’m giving up on you ♪ [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ ♪ Say something ♪ [ Cheers and applause ] -[ Laughs ] -Sophia the Robot, everybody!
Wow! [ Cheers and applause ] Let’s get all of our robots
back here. That’s all the time we have
for “Tonight Showbotics.” My thanks to Sangbae Kim
and the Mini Cheetah, Nobumichi Tosa and the Tomatan, and Hanson Robotics’
Sophia and Little Sophia.
