Erica – Deemed as one of the most beautiful and intelligent androids, Erica is revolutionizing Japan’s robot culture. This advanced humanoid is a collaborative effort between Osaka University, the University of Kyoto, and the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR). Hiroshi Ishiguro, professor at Osaka University’s Intelligent Robotics Laboratory, leads the team who developed Erica. Professor Ishiguro used sample images of 30 beautiful women to create the facial features of Erica, who responds to questions with facial expressions that are strikingly similar to that of humans. Erica also has improved speech and an increased ability to understand and respond to questions.
Which celebrity should meet Erica? Leonardo DiCaprio – because a robot model is still missing from his collection.
