Ibn Sina Arabic Speaking Humanoid Robot Travels First Class On Emirates

Ibn Sina recently made his journey from Dubai, to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia on an Emirates Airlines flight. Not a big deal except that he did so as a passenger and not in the cargo hold. Ibn Sina (named after an 11th century philosopher), made his way into the Emrites First Class passenger lounge along with Dr Nikolaos Mavridis.

The robot checked in at the first class counter and handled himself like any other passenger. He even made small talk with other passengers, who I’m sure feared for their life.
