“This is Erica the Robot, Presenting Today’s News”

A lifelike android robot is set to start making regular appearances on television in Japan as a news broadcaster. The robot, named Erica, has the features of a 23-year-old woman. It was designed by one of that country’s foremost robotics researchers, Dr Hiroshi Ishiguro of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Osaka University. Appropriately, the robot also possesses some other human-like abilities including speech recognition and generation algorithms that enable it to have live verbal interactions with people. Additionally, infrared sensors and facial recognition software allow it to track people around a room.
