Sophia the Robot’s getting upstaged by a younger hotter fembot (just like a real woman)

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.
