MEET Jia-Jia – the terrifyingly realistic ‘robot goddess’ who will refer to you as “my lord”, The Sun Online reports. She was developed by Chinese scientists who say she can learn skills and recognise human faces. With her flowing long hair and feminine features, you would be forgiven for mistaking her for a real woman.
“It will make my face look fat.” She has natural eye movement and her lips synch up with her ‘voice’. It took her creator Chen Xiaoping and his team three years to build Jia-Jia. When Xiaoping said hello to her at the unveiling the robot responded: “Yes my lord, what can I do for you?”
He told the crowd: “We hope to develop the robot so it has deep learning abilities. “We will add facial expression recognition and make it interact more deeply with people.” For now she is a one off, with no plans for mass production. Jia-Jia is programmed to recognise human interaction and a ‘cloud’ based system for storing memories.
She isn’t the first realistic fembot. Earlier this month Ricky Ma unveiled his own model – a life-like replica of actress Scarlett Johansson.
