- It’s programmed to recognize human/machine interaction, has autonomous position and navigation and offers services based on cloud technology
- Researher say they would not consider mass production, yet
You might do a double take when you see this new interactive robot, as it ‘looks very much like a real woman’.
Dubbed ‘robot goddess’, Jia Jia has the long flowing locks and rosy red cheeks as a human, but is being taught deep learning abilities.
This humanoid is designed with natural eye movement, speech that is syncs with its lip movements and refers to its male creators as ‘lords’.
This life-like cyborg is the brain child of Chen Xiaoping and his colleagues at the University of Science and Technology of China, who unveiled the technology today in Hefei, capital of east China’s Anhui Province.
During the unveiling, Xiaoping said hello to his robot goddess, which immediately responded, ‘Yes my lord, what can I do for you?’
It took the team three years to complete the robot, which can speak, show micro-expressions, move its lips and body, yet seems to hold its head in a submissive manner.
The humanoid is programmed to recognize human/machine interaction, has autonomous position, navigation and offers services based on cloud technology.
