We have seen many robots, some of them are too frightening ones but recently researchers from the University of Science and Technology of China revealed a realistic robot which is capable of human-like facial expressions, along with talking and interacting with people nearby. Moreover it looks beautiful, actually we can say its the “robot goddess”.
World’s most Realistic Robot – Jia Jia
The new interactive realistic robot, named Jia Jia, was unveiled Friday by the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Hefei, capital of east China’s Anhui Province.
The creators describe it as looking similar to a “real woman”, and also Jia Jia can talk and interact with real humans, as well as make some facial expressions.

And also it can recognize when someone is taking a picture and make appropriate comments, “Don’t come too close to me when you are taking a picture. It will make my face look fat,” she told someone trying to capture her photo during the presscon.
The team spent three years designing her, making sure her mouth moves when she speaks and that her eyes glance around the room naturally.
But they’ve yet to figure out how she can laugh or cry… and how to make her hands look less like a department store mannequin’s. Those might come with version 2.
Team leader Chen Xiaoping said they hope to give her deep learning and facial recognition capabilities in the future. At this point Jia Jia is just a robotics research project, as there’s no plans for mass production.
