World's first AI news anchor makes "his" China debut


Source: Xinhua| 2018-11-08 13:31:48|Editor: ZD

HANGZHOU, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- The world's first artificial intelligence (AI) news anchor made "his" debut at the ongoing fifth World Internet Conference in east China's Zhejiang Province.

The news anchor, based on the latest AI technology, has a male image with a voice, facial expressions and actions of a real person. "He" learns from live broadcasting videos by himself and can read texts as naturally as a professional news anchor.

The AI news anchor was jointly developed by Xinhua News Agency, the official state-run media outlet of China, and Chinese search engine company Sogou.com.

According to Xinhua, "he" has become a member of its reporting team and can work 24 hours a day on its official website and various social media platforms, reducing news production costs and improving efficiency.

2. I saw An article the other day


That now technology is getting so good that they can pretty much make up fake video of anything

And Iím not sure how news outlets will handle that in the future. Someone can bring them a fake video and destroy someoneís career. It will be nearly impossible to know if itís fake or not

3. I think Rachel Maddow is a little bit more personable.

What do others think?
