Bloomberg's Hello World host Ashlee Vance recently traveled to Osaka University to see Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro’s latest creation, an android named Erica that's designed to work, one day, as a receptionist or personal assistant.

To Vance she is, but not to Professor Ishiguro, who considers her nearly indistinguishable from a human. (Source: Bloomberg)
