  • Erica, the creepy robot that is so life-like she appears to 'have a soul”

    Erica, the creepy robot that is so life-like she appears to 'have a soul', will replace a Japanese TV news anchor in April

    Roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro says she may get an 'independent consciousness'

    Dr Ishiguro says he has been trying to get his creation on air since 2014

    Erica's voice may also be used to talk to passengers in autonomous vehicles

    Using 14 infra-red sensors and face recognition technology Erica can track people in a room. She was developed with money from one of the highest-funded science projects in Japan, JST Erato

    She is meant to be a 23-year-old human and has one of the most advanced speech synthesis systems ever developed.

    Her 'architect' Dr Dylan Glas, says that Erica has learnt jokes, 'although they're not exactly side-splitters', he added.
    'What we really want to do is have a robot which can think and act and do everything completely on its own', he said.
    As well as learning to develop compassion, Erica is also pipped to be a Japanese news presenter sometime this year, and could make a national debut in April.
