Shame. It looks like Sophia the Robot’s five minutes of fame as the world’s favourite fembot drawing to a close, as a younger, sexier, humanoid fembot, who goes by the name of Ms. Erica Aoi, takes center stage.
Erica, who is fully humanoid, just landed a plum job as a news anchor at Nippon Television Network in Tokyo Japan (replacing a “real” human woman’s job in the process).
Erica is even more creepily human than Sophia could ever hope to be and she also, apparently, has a much more “attractive personality.”
It’s nice to see that good old-fashioned girl-on-girl competition extends into the world of AI too, isn’t it?
Just like real women then.
