The eerily realistic female humanoid robot has been designed to look, act and speak like a real person.
The remarkable creation, which could be set to redefine how humanity interacts with machines, is the latest in a long line of realistic talking robots developed by Texas-based firm Hanson Robotics.
Known as ‘Sophia’, the female robot possesses a strikingly human-like face which combines the features of actress Audrey Hepburn with those of the wife of the company’s CEO, David Hanson.
With the ability to emulate over sixty separate facial expressions, the robot is perhaps the most human-like machine ever created.
“I do believe that there will be a time when robots are indistinguishable from humans,” said Hanson.
A demonstration of Sophia in action, which can be viewed below, ends with Hanson prompting the robot to come out with the rather worrying response – “OK, I will destroy humans.”
