But for all the attention that Aiko has garnered, one topic area has elicited the most questions: Anything and everything to do with sex.
And Trung has answered every question that he has been asked.
"Does she have breasts? I will say yes. Does she have nipples? I will say yes. Does she have a vagina? I will say yes. Are there sensors there? I will say yes," he said.
"Do I sleep with her? No."
Trung said he chose to make Aiko a female because he reasoned that a female android would be less threatening than a male android.
As for the questions about Aiko's anatomical details, Trung said he attempted to build an android that is as realistic as possible, plain and simple.
"For some reason, tabloids twisted the story around and there's nothing much you can do," Trung said.
But he admits there are some adult topics that Aiko is familiar with.
"If you talk dirty to her, she will talk dirty back," Trung said, admitting that an R-rated vocabulary was an unforeseen part of Aiko's development.
When he began building up Aiko's capabilities, Trung said he used a software program that scanned a series of random websites so she could download new words for her vocabulary.
But within a few short hours, the searching algorithm inadvertently brought her to some adult websites that allowed Aiko to pick up some "new words" that Trung had not intended for her to learn.
