Meet the Chinese robot goddess who can be mistaken for a human being

You might do a double take when you see this particular robot - and if you did you would not be alone. Visitors to a recent exhibition in China were greeted by Jia Jia, a humanoid robot who is not only scarily lifelike, but intelligent and quick-witted too.
The female robot has been called a 'robot goddess' by her hoards of online fans, and some who met her at a recent exhibition were taken aback by her lifelike appearance.

Jia Jia stood near the entrance of the exhibition hall that hosted this year's 2016 Summer Davos Forum in Tianjin, in a major port city in North China.

She was dressed in a traditional Chinese outfit, hairstyle, complete with a classic hairpin, and immediately caught the attention of passers-by.

This life-like cyborg is the brain child of Chen Xiaoping and his colleagues at the University of Science and Technology of China, who unveiled the technology today in Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province.

Her 'brain', which is essentially a huge online database, is connected to a cloud computing platform that allows her to enhance her ability to process emotions and speech as new data is uploaded.
