A new potential robot

Sophia, the world’s first robot citizen, recently appeared in a fashion magazine and was constantly welcomed by the media. However, Sophia’s unique position is shaken with the appearance of Erica, a robot from Japan with a very good voice. With the most advanced artificially designed voice system, this Japanese robot will soon become a television news reporter.

About Erica

Having an appearance comparable to a 23-year-old girl, Erica was very dominated at first sight and made many people confused about whether she was a robot or not.

According to Daily Mail, “Unlike Sophia, Erica cannot move her arms but can easily interact with others. She also uses her artificial intelligence to read human-generated news. The robot can even listen and determine where the sounds come from. When being asked questions, it will also identify and provide answers. Besides, Erica has the ability to identify faces and a variety of sensors.

The scientist working on Erica, Hiroshi Ishiguro, said: “I think Erica is a” soulful” robot and even has a sense of independence in the future. Unlike previous robots, Erica actively seeks interaction with humans. The robot is always eager to learn the world around and actively interact with anyone who comes near. Erica claims she is 23 years old, dreams of traveling the world and enjoys watching movies. While communicating, Erica even knew how to joke and tell funny stories.

Robot development

Contrary to the enthusiasm of scientists, the majority of people continue to be concerned with the rise of robots and machines. They are gradually replacing humans in different areas thanks to the automation technology and artificial human intelligence.

If the robot can conduct sophisticated surgeries, provide food and perform heavy tasks, then job loss will increase sooner or later.
